Sultzer...

Nice report, well done mate, good result eh? :D You say you went south to off Easthaven, how deep is the water there? Were the mussels live or cooked? I've seen both in Tesco and just wondered.

Cheers,

Shad.

we were about 1/2 - 3/4 of mile offshore and the wind kept moving us outwards prefered if we just drift down with tide.
on the day we used fresh mussel and cooked
cooked out fished the fresh.
