Re: Strange hookups

Fishing for reds in WP one day I caught a 4ft hammer by its tail. The hook had simply wrapped round it's tail and hooked back on the trace. The hook didn't penetrate whatsoever. Freaky! Can't imagine it ever happening again!

Re: Sat 28th a litany of errors.

Sounds like you were a bit out of sorts. That's not like you Ol mate! What do you mean no bait, I see some great bait sitting on the board right there ;) At least you took home a feed and didn't break anything. Lol. Does this mean you didn't get a chance to test out your new winch either? I'm sure ...

Re: Rhyll

Yes I agree too early and water was too cold. I was hoping to get my dad onto a 10kg plus red which seem to more prevalent early season. Keep :wt: ....... Clever thinking, worth a crack! Did you have much of a sound around at all? Reckon I'd be trying the deeper water from Silverleaves to Cowes the...

Re: Port Welshpool 30/9/2019, some squid and some big mistakes!

Great lil sesh there by the sounds of it mate! I'd definitely call that a good day...along with a lesson well learnt. You got away with it very lightly man. Things could have been soooo much worse.

Re: Boat Maintenance

Smile - at this time of year the grass is growing and lawns are thickening right up. The dirt underneath is also quite moist, therefore soft. Without knowing the setup of your front/back yards, have you thought about dropping the Ol girl off the trailer and do all your mods & maintenance at once? Of...

Re: Do wave direction effect snapper ?

Dude, think about what I have said in the examples, in relation to your real-time situation. Think! To help join the dots for you, if it is a S-SW wind, it will be an onshore wind in the N-NE section of the bay. In other words, warmies area.

I've found that during northerlies and easterlies it is usually a soft/timid bite/take, whereas during westerlies or southerners it is a more convincing/aggressive bite/take. However, I don't think this is quite what you're referring to. In reference to land based fishing,...
