Anyone out Tuesday? Weather looks good. Think I will give it a go... J

I was tempted but there's fog forecast for the morning.  A 90 mile drive in freezing fog and then the potential of fog out at sea doesn't appeal.  Good luck if you go

Was pretty foggy at first went out a short way , it seemed it was more in the Solent so headed east and out to Deans Elbow. Fog was clearing as I went.
Anchored in clear sunshine, beautiful day , flat calm.
There were some shoals of small fish on the surface, maybe whitebait?
Caught the usual mix of dogfish, pout, whiting, conger and a nice undulate.
Had 3 big tales on small fish but none stayed on, I suspect conger just judging by the bite and the pull on lifting into them.
Back in around 3.30 and home to put up the Xmas tree. 😊
Didn't hear of any cod on the radio, certainly few and far between this year.
Hope everyone has a fun Christmas!

As it was nice today got the boat put in and gave it a go only ventured round to Gillkicker area, caught a few good sized pout a dogfish and a few whiting, put a big bait down just in case that big cod came along but no luck.
Was a nice day to get out as I thought by looking at the weather forecast I wouldn't get out over the Christmas break.

Happy New Year to you all and lets look forward to a good 2018

Well done Dave. Was travelling over to the iow so couldn't get out myself even though I knew it was the only opportunity...
Rain now hammering on the window in Bembridge, totally opposite of yesterday.
Have a good new year !

Watching Rick Stein last night cooking fish in Mexico has anybody cooked dogfish. Catch 100s and throw them all back. I know they are difficult to skin but never tasted one. They seem to be popular in Mexico.

Yes, cooked and no, they are not difficult to skin if you know how. Links to my preferred recipes are on this page:  http://www.boat-angling.co.uk/cooking-fish/" rel="nofollow - http://www.boat-angling.co.uk/cooking-fish/   To skin, 
  1. cut away the entire belly and guts from in front of the pectoral fins to the vent. 
  2. Cut off all the other fins. 
  3. Slit the skin from vent to tail along the underneath centre line.
  4.  Cut the skin all around the neck. 
  5. Make a noose of baler twine and fasten the head to something solid. 
  6. Take a pair of pliers, grab the skin behind the neck cut and pull backwards. 
  7. Hey presto one skinned dogfish. Chop off the head and job done.

A tip - To slit the skin I use a "carpet" blade (curved) Stanley knife. dead easy and works for smoothies.

I think I have chosen the right time of year to have had a knee replacement.

I cut off the head and all the fins. Then I slit the belly and take out the guts. Then I cut the skin in a line down the back down the back, and on the the belly side slit down as far as I want to go, with a stanley blade. I cut the skin right round the body just in front of the last fins (lifting the skin away from flesh a bit) then, holding the tail with a towel - grip the lifted skin with pliers - then pull one side of the skin off in one pull. Repeat for the other side. 

Then I just cut the rest into 3 or 4 inch chunks, roll in seasoned flour and fry.

Madmackem, thanks for the advice, never thought of using stanley knives on board. It makes so much sense. Looking forward to some settled weather. lost landing net and boat hooks in the gales.

Very goodLOL Landing nets have many uses, rescuing fenders, catching peeler crabs off harbour walls even rescued a jack russel one day and they enhance the look of the boat!

Now - if we are going to have a "most unlikely thing scooped up in a landing net competition" - I think a Jack Russell is definitely in the lead.

My most memorable is a ladies purse. She had it tucked in her cleavage but when she leant over side of her boat to tie onto the pontoon, up tide of me on the Itchenor pontoon, it (the purse) popped out!

I deny that I was watching the manoeuvre just because she was wearing a bikini, a lot younger than me & it was a big cleavage (I was just looking to see if they needed help). I whipped my LN out and saved the day before it sunk out of reach.
My reward was a pint of Arundel in the Ship (bought by her partner).

Oh, I think the cleavage, sorry, purse, definitely beats the Jack Russell, unless the dog bit Dave as he took it out of the net.

I remember the time I rescued a fender for an all female crew of a 70m yacht in the Solent and was asked to put it back when I went alongside them as they were on a training course for recovering overboard items!

Once, whilst out by the Nab, I recovered a fully inflated male blow up doll that was gently floating by. I couldnít bring myself to lift it out by itís erect todger so resorted to the landing net!

never netted anything strange   but have caught   unusual stuff once at utopia claw caught a fire hose about 60 ft long no fittings perfectly hooked clean 1 end as it came up I thought it was a massive eel lol another time   fishing halfway along culver   spit had a blonde ray of 23 pound as I was lifting it in boat   noticed a length of rope   around it   so grabbed the rope and   fish released the ray and syarted pulling up a 30 pound   fishermans anchor lol

Now that just shows what's out there !


The mind boggles at the male doll - hen party off to France or IoW? I think that is up there at the top of the list. Have you still got it ?

Poor blond ray - anchor one end and Ray the other!

Only notable odd catch I have had was a round cannon ball just south of the from the (hook was through the molluscs attached). All the way up I was saying it was a good ray, as I am sure it was fighting, bit embarrassing when it turned out to be an inanimate object!

Fishing for Conger at night had a slow bite. Pulling it in couldn't understand why it felt so heavy but little fight. Eventually got it to the side of the boat: it was an open large black umbrella expertly hooked under the handle !

That takes skill.

Whilst we are all bored I am sure there are more "unusual tales" of what we have picked up in the landing net & pulled up at the end of the line .


Lets have more !!

Not that dramatic but caught an as-new braided mainsheet (rope) lost from a yacht, it has been doing great service as a tow-rope in my car ever since.

Went out today to recharge the batteries both mine and the boats...
Misty, very quiet, huge tide. Ran round Horse Sands and back, filled the tank, tidied up for when weather is good enough to fish.
Looking forward to some sunny weather.
