Hi guys

fantastic week down in your neck of the woods, weather good ,fishing good, pb huss to 9lbs,
But the weirdest thing happened to me whilst fishing near Porthscatho, I was buzzed, I can only describe it that way by a noise which eminated from the sea, it was mechcanical and structured and lasted in bursts of 4-5 seconds.
It went on for about 1 min on on occasion and 30 sec for another, any ideas, I wondered if it was Submarine sonar ?

maybe someone in a submarine had their mobile on vibrate LOL !

was it quite loud (or was the feeling of vibration quite strong) ? If so maybe it was either a geological survey (sound waves able to penetrate various rock layers) , or that "super powerful" sonar which some conservations fear literally kill cetaceans - either directly by causing something like the bends (from the pressure fluctuations) or by making them deaf or making them panic and do an emergency ascent

Ive been fishing over 35 years never felt anything like it, quite strange, the vibration was an "all over" experience but I felt it more in my head.

just a guess, it may have been a very minor earthquake, we had one once that rocked the wardrobes, (i've always claimed it was me)

ive heard some strange noises like that fishing when its really quiet, bugged me for ages . then i listened to the fishing line on my rod/reel and under the tension and dues to the tide was making a really wierd noise. no alcohol or drugs involved.

oif its not that your rods posessed.

sometimes if u hav been in a built up busy area with constant noise for a given period then gone to a quiet peaceful area with no noise the silence can sound very loud in yer melon almost buzzing, like a low frequency vibrating hum.

but then i do eat a lot of beans! lol:)
