Hi all,
had a slow day out on the breakwater, got better towards high water, ended up with 12 doggies a small codling of bout a pound and a pouting that weighed just 2 pounds! see piccie! my poor old dad had a single whiting. used yellows, blacks, squid n sandeel. not bad in the end.
however, and i i apologise for sounding blunt and a bit annoyed here, if the two lads are reading this who fished next to me, please learn to fish properly on there, there is no need to pendulum/distance cast off the outside wall there, the more line in the water the more pressure from the tide, you cut through my old mans line twice and dragged him into god knows how many snags. you had the right weights lads but totally wrong wire configuration for that tide out there. i showed one of you how to have the short anchor type wires, but you chose to ignore it. those big springy things are no use and just tumble over n over in the tide. my dad n i were fishing straight in front of us using those gemini 8oz weights with the short anchor wires and can in any tide. the idea of them is to pull the weight into the seabed. big springy wires dont even allow the weight to sit on the bottom. I really am sorry for sounding miffed but as those who know me, i am a lovely bloke really! ;) , no hard feelings lads. :hug: :)

.as i said mate no hard feelings, i didnt want to say names. yep you went through his line a good'un twice, he didnt want to say anything. he is the most timid bloke around. line when run over another will cut through like a knife through butter. apology accepted.
.i have no doubt about your ability mate, you both are clearly and obviously very competent. i showed gaz how to have the wires. we were holding fine with 'em. its why gemini supply the uptide extension so the tide can press the weight in with the wires. having them spread wide is ok for pulling from snags not for holding bottom in that tide.
.mate, we were 30 meters apart still, how much room or how many pegs do you want? i would fully expect you to be cheesed off with me had i pulled you in 15 times. we swapped round cos he had the lad the other side doing the same thing but to a lesser degree when the tide was flowing the other way. you were both launching it out. we were uptiding too, so to speak but your lead was just swinging round in the tide.
:) :giveup:

creedy, i know you n dan are mates and i'm not doubting him as a person or an angler, mono if run over anther will cut into it, two rubbing surfaces run over one another will cause friction.

i'll say it again, i'm not talking once or twice here i'm talkin all but every cast til the tide turned. and again when it turned back. i was quite happy up until the umpteenth time his line swung round and then pulled mine and my dads lines in. i spent half the poxy mornin re tying my dads leaders n traces cos his eyes aint too good. my dad has vowed never to fish on there again. which is a great shame. he aint got a lot of money and literally saved for this trip and i am really upset that he had his day ruined. I couldnt give a stuff about myself and my fishing. i get paid to fish, i can do it anytime i like! just a little common courtesy to the angler next to ya thats all. when gaz cast short like everyone else on there, there were no tangles at all.

Cascars, lock this one mate or get rid of it, either way.

Fair enough lads.

creedy,
I'm in a very, very fortunate position mate, for the last 8 years i've fished in a huge league that is for the whole of the MoD and all associated employees, it fishes the length n breadth of the country, plus overseas. cos i fish for 'em at a very high level, fishing a match or training day, time off is no worries, (although dave oldman may laugh at that cos i cant get time off in may for once!:schmoll:) I get full pay to go fishing, on top of that 2/3 of all costs, including boat fees, accomodation, usually a bnb, plus a hire car and all fuel. you get clothing etc but i'm not really into that, the only thing you pay for is rods, reels and tackle. add to that tackle shop sponsorship and its quite a good deal really. plus i coarse fish for 'em as well! some blokes do game fishing on top of all that as well! :D :D

thats just the fishing, I ski with 'em as well, which you can really take the p1ss with!!!!!!:clap2:
