Anyone get anything today? I managed two small plaice (1lb and 2lb). Just ate them. Not a lot of flesh and not much flavour. Probably to do with just having spawned.
 
Nearly got caught by the weather in the afternoon and had a rather bumpy ride home to Southampton water (good fun really).  A great day out. Calm and sunny in the morning.
 
Nice to see a couple of the guys (Roy and Russell) I've been foruming with. . . .

I had a couple of large mouth bass but it is a bit hot to fish now. Have to go for a beer.
 
Well done Terry for giving it a shot, hope you leave some spotties for me!

well done terry!! i the grand total of 0 !!!! i drifted up and down Stokes bay also around the deep water at Gilkicker then went to the Green bouy off of browndown . I did miss a bite but was making a cup of coffee so by the time i had spilled it all over the floor and me it was gone!. Never mind the weather was lovely for a while. Never Mind i did catch crabs!!! ( in my net i brought from E-bay for 3Quid ). i just left it over the side over night with a joey head init and must of had a good 25! so i know how to cath my Smoothy bait now.

Russ .

That a good tip Russ.
 
Have you still got the eBay URL for the crab net?  I'd like to give that a go over slack water.
 
Sorry I went shooting by. I did wave (as always) but I hadn't recognised the boat. When you called me I had presumed wrongly that you were on the blocks for some strange reason. I think it is because I was right near the blocks by then and you were loud and clear. I just fitted a new aerial and I'm not used to such good reception.
 
I guess in all honesty it will take me ages to memorise the various boats because I don't see them very often.  I'll recognise Happy Days and Three Girls when I see them now. The flag will help a lot. I managed to attach mine to the aerial mast with a couple of tie-wraps through the brass rings in the flag and around the aerial. The tie wraps slide down and you can adjust the hieght by tightening the tie-wraps. It seems to work OK and I haven't lost the flag yet but the year is young.
 
It was really choppy going back to Southampton (2.30pm to 3pm). Had a great time jumping the waves. The fuel consumption went up about 25% and cruising went down to 18Kn. I had to stick in a load of port trim-tab to keep level. I'd love to know what the wind scale was. I guess it was up to about force 5 between Portsmouth and Southampton and going SSW (onto the port front quarter). I'm still a relative newbie at this and it was good experience and confidence building stuff. I'm glad that little island was taking some of strength of the wind away.

There is a guy at Lee on Solent that sells all the different types of nets from his garage at home. He sells loads on E bay but you are better off going to his house and choosing exactly what you need.
 
He is on the Cherque Farm Estate, I will try and dig out his address.

It is the first house on the left in Grayson Close (probably number 1). From Newgate Lane turn left into Cherque Farm Estate, right at the roundabout, left at the T junction and first left is Grayson Close.
 
I dont know his name but he also does second hand tackle and new cheapie stuff like Fladen. He has a large selection of nets and bait traps.

Thanks Marv.
 
Information like that saves us wasting gallons of petrol on wild goose chases.
 
Now here is one for you. What size plaice is really worth keeping?  I had a pounder on Saturday but it didn't make much of a meal. Too small. It was gut hooked else I would have put him back. I also had a 2 pounder which is definitely a different kettle of fish. Enough for two.

Hi Terry,
 
To answer your question the wind was approx 18-22kt between 2.30-3pm yesterday according to Bramblet (www.bramblemet.co.uk) a good F5. It was a tad breezy and I saw your boat as I was skippering the yacht that was taking its sails down just by the entrance to Hythe marina as you were heading in. I don't fish from a boat but after having read the thread about the flag, I recognised your boat as an SFG member so it does work!!
 
Cheers,
Ed
