Went down to Mumbles yesterday for an afternoon on my mate's boat. After launching boat we found the engine wouldn't start and eventually had to be towed back in from near the pier. Fished knab rock instead as we had loads of bait.
Ended up as a good sesh as we caught about 20 pollack (up to 2 lb), 5 whiting, 1 pout, 1 codling and 1 dab.
All fish returned apart from 1 pollack.
Nearly all fish caught on mackerel strips.
In the end we were glad the engine failed. We probably wouldn't have caught so many fish!

if your engine wouldnt start how did you get towed back in from by the pier and how towed you in?

Two young blokes in a red rib towed us in at about 1.30. We'd rowed out about 30 yards and tried to start the engine but soon the wind had drifted us right down until we were about 100 yards from the pier. We chucked the anchor out until the kind blokes towed us in.:boat:
