Which boat are you on?
30/07/2007 at 8:33 pm #61944
Offhand, I can’t remember the name.
Apparently, the skipper is some big ugly geezer who rides a harley
30/07/2007 at 8:37 pm #61945
You really should have picked one that drives a boat!!!!!
Almost certain to sink!

Dick lad, you’ve gone very quiet.
Chaps, it’s not a trick question, is there an alternative to lugworm for plaice ???
30/07/2007 at 9:22 pm #61947
Rag, crab or ask blue Shaun.
30/07/2007 at 9:44 pm #61948
U R A gent

Fresh mussel would be another option.

That’s great, cheers guys
31/07/2007 at 6:57 am #61951
Dont forget your ear plugs
31/07/2007 at 8:12 am #61952
Don’t worry !!
If I lose the toss and end up next to the skipper, I’ll talk all day about me stamp collection and he won’t get a word in edgeways.

Wrong skipper the Harley one is at Langstone
All I am taking is Rag and Squid but I have been told that Black Lug works as well

Anyway, it was phish’s fault.
He gave me a bum steer

You R the one who mentioned the Harley
Any way I’ve got good news and bad news.
I’ve agreed with the skipper that he is to supply the bait Â£.75 / head which we will pay for whether we go or not.
On the down side its 6am on the boat so no cafe.
Oven will be on for pies etc.
01/08/2007 at 12:32 pm #61957
Sorry meant Â£3.75 / head Â£75 would have meant we would have sent Dick to Scotland for Blueys
01/08/2007 at 5:49 pm #61958
Will we get a maggot each for that ??
01/08/2007 at 6:22 pm #61959
Only if you leave the top off your lunch box
02/08/2007 at 10:19 am #61960
Sounds like Dick will have them new bait wonders (can’t remember what they is called) gissa repoprt after eh!…
02/08/2007 at 8:36 pm #61961
I did manage to get some from Deal and tried them on the pier there but could not catch on them whether that is because the condition were wrong (spring tides) or because I am not a Super angler (for a Super bait)
All I had at Deal was Pout on Rag worm and I lost 6 sets of tackle because of the strength of the tide.
As the bait is so soft I will try it on the boat next time I go out but I cannot see myself paying Â£3.50 per pack for any more
02/08/2007 at 9:31 pm #61962
Wow, the first honest test.
Rather than words!

With regards to your last post Ada, I agree but it cuts both ways, Shorn has cited Worms against Sauris for various in Iceland Mr. Fettish (who is he?) has quoted examples of crab against Sauries for catching Thornies. This weekend I am going to try Sauris against
Mackies fresh and frozen, and frozen sandeels, float and bottom fished.
I will the try bottom fished whole & Flappered at night, I will log every catch and present the results here with no slant or bias, and you may all view the data and make your own conclusions.
Thsssit! End of! Ave it!
