  1. Boat Angling / Angling Afloat
    Hi all, Have recently bought a small Dory boat and looking to take it out on its first trip around the Dorset coast this weekend. Aiming to launch from either Swanage or Kimmeridge for a days fishing, ideally for Bream and Plaice. Could anyone recommend a couple of good marks to get started...

    I am looking at buying a fishing boat for me and two mates and need some advise. I have narrowed my search down to a Jeanneau Merry Fisher Marlin 6, Quicksilver 605 Pilothouse, and Parker 660 Pilothouse. Does anyone have any advise on these boats to help us decide? Thanks

I've fiddled with all the settings but the detail just isn't...

    So here's a (possibly quite dumb) question for those who know the Solent area.... Earlier this year I moved my boat down to Eastney and have been getting to know the eastern Solent, so far so good. I know that the Blocks can be productive but I'm not certain of how people fish it. Is it...
