      Southsea boating lake, there will be dozens of kids down there who will have buckets of crabs they’ll flog you, might be a bit dodgy to talk to them tho, but you could get your own, one rasher a mtr of string and a bucket, couple of dozen in half an hour.
      Posted on 14.06.07 at 21:22

      shonzy Crabs have been hard to come by, it goes like that…. anything from 500-4500 a week to nothing!! Hopefully they should start peeling soon ready fot the 30th
      Tried a new spot for hardbacks, 60 in 30 mins, happy dayz
      Sterius got a carfull at the mo but one of them should be able to drive, we’ll sort summit out nearer the time

      Posted on 16.06.07 at 01:38

      Greenman
      STATEMENT.
      Can we just stress that a TSFF ‘meet’ is what it is, a ‘meet’
      No comp, rules or regs.
      ALL, EVERYONE and ANYONE welcome, just turn up.
      You can visit, join in and/or fish, no problems, open to all and everyone.
      I will have

    • #60592

      Well now that we are back up and running, we shall start again.
      Lots of talk, but is West Sands confirmed???
      I hope to be on site before 14.00, if dry will set up kitchen.
      Should have everything you might require, just bring your own grub and help yourselves.
      But it’s only a small two ring and grill camping stove for pots and pans etc.
      Great for boiling kettle, frying onions, eggs etc, but if windy can take some time, especially at busy times.
      Is anyone going to muck in with a charcoal of Gas BBQ? to help with the main cooking period.
      Depending on the weather and bathers, will fish day as much as possible, could be Bream, small hooks, float or at distance.
      May be Mackie, feathers, lures of float.
      May even find some Dogs, Smutt and others.
      High Tide about midnight, depending on weather and the fish will stay as long as possible, will keep kitchen open if required, will try and keep kettle on the boil.

      I will have many rigs and leads available if you get stuck.

      On site within stagger distance.
      Carpark on beach, almost fish out the back of vehicle.
      Bar, Toilets, shop, amusements, cafe, take away etc.

      It’s up to you where you fish, but as it’s a meet, it would be great if we all stuck together.
      When you arrive, claim a ‘stake’ and post your spot on the beach.
      Not the done thing or offical, but it may help keep your spot on the beach till you get set up.
      Marker pen available to put your name on stake.
      When you have got set up, please move stake along to next spot, so that it’s available for someone else in our group.

      Warning;
      I had some strong emails in the past, don’t want them again.
      We have previously been blamed, as an easy target, for problems on the beach by Bunn Leisure and holiday makers.
      These claims have been completely unfounded and denied.
      If it’s been a hot day the beach may be a mess from the bathers rubbish, don’t let us get the the blame again.
      Please clean up and don’t leave any rubbich or cause conflict.
      Bin are situated in the car park, I will also have a bin at the kitchen.

      My mobile; 07932140070.
      You can text, but don’t expect a reply!

      Any other questions or details required?

    • #60593

      Is anyone going to muck in with a charcoal of Gas BBQ? to help with the main cooking period. ? ? ?

      Greenys been on the cider !

      Can anyone dychper that ?

      H.A has come up for air then gone down again ! (like a carp)

    • #60594

      Is anyone from the Portsmouth area going? Shonzy, any news abt the carpool yet?

      I’d volunteer two disposable charcoal bbq sets.

    • #60595

      maggit, cider I don’t think so, bad times many years ago, vodka may be!
      Just read the thread again, think it means what I said!
      Small stove with all the gear required, help yourselves.
      But if windy and 20 waiting to cook their food, can take some time, previous years someone else has also supplied BBQ as extra cooking at the busy time, that’s it.
      Ada, I will get the special fried onions ready.

    • #60596

      So that we can keep in contact on the day, anyone going either post on here for all or email me [click on red Greenman] your mobile number.
      Everyone is welcome, just turn up and get involved, even just for a drink in the bar or the BBQ, or to watch.
      Thinking of starting beach fishing, come along and muck in, spare rods and gear will be available, that’s it, it’s a meet..

    • #60597

      Opp’s, found this on page 2.

    • #60598

      I’d better cut back on the grub then!

      Not looking good for the crabs chaps. We haven’t had any in for 4 weeks.

      Get collecting those hardbacks!!

    • #60600

      somebody tell me how i get a crab on a hook

    • #60601

      o my god, what size hook was that ?

      what hooklength bs ?

      what weight would you need to cast that and how far would you need to cast it ?

    • #60602

      Probably an 8/0 octopus hook! LOL

      You’ll need 30-40lb snoods for hounds.

      The weight will depend on the tide run, Try at distance and reduce you distance if you ain’t catching. I caught at less than 20yds between groynes!

      As pointed out by someone else, you can break the legs of the crab and hook it by th socket. Here for gilthead bream, I use whole hardback which I remove the lungs (which is a piece of shell remove at the back of the crab) and hook the centre of the crab with a strong short shank hook.

    • #60603

      8/0 are you serious ?

      got some 20lb amnesia, and 30lb stuff !

      8/0 ? where the kin el do i get a hook that big ?

    • #60604

      No, don’t use an 8/0…

      A 2/0-4/0 will do. 30lb snood will be fine.

      Here is a pic I found when using big green grab as bait.

      http://www.floridasportsman.com/HowTo/050680/

    • #60605

      Forgot to say, match the hook sizee with the bait size you are using.

    • #60606

      Maggit, I will have some spare rigs if required, 2/0 to 4/0 will do.
      As Jackyboy says, match hook size to bait size and also targeted fish, nice details JB [you do have far too much time]
      Perhaps Ada is getting us some monster crabs for the monster sharks, but regardless of the size of Ada’s big crabs they can be cut in half to suit size of hook.
      make sure you have some bait elastic [for all baits] to aid casting and help stop the crabs for a while.
      Short of crab bait, use fish bait on multi hooks of trebles and catch some spiders – free bait!
      H.A. nice sketch, grandson said he could do better!

    • #60607

      Sorry, but I know you like them, but another list, to keep us informed.

    • #60608

      Looking again i may of missed some of you, so please list to confirm.
      Others may be + 1 or 2, please also list.

      SORRY, it’s just so that we have some idear of the numbers on the day.
      No good arranging a meet for two when twenty turn up, that’s it.

    • #60609

      Well, it’s Thursday and I still haven’t sorted transport. Anyone going from the Pompey area? Shonzy, anything sorted yet? As said before will pay for petrol (10 quid oughta sort it no? don’t mind paying more anyways).

      I’m going crabbing at canoe lake tomorrow evening for some hardbacks. Gotta go pick me up some 30lb amnesia as well as 4/0 uptides too. Anyone working/too busy to pop down to tackle shop? I could pick up a few things on my way.

    • #60610

      Thanks Paul! Oh btw I think I owe you a tenner for the powercast (old is gold isn’t it).

    • #60611

      Usually if windy or inclement East beach is go – but tommorow is ‘Sea Selsey’ Fun fair , stalls et al, displays by local fisherman(commercial hoovermen) and an angling comp on East beach.
      So we is stuck with West Sands unless sea Selsey is rained off like last year.

    • #60612

      Chicken, what’s wrong with getting a bit wet?
      Mind you the weather has never been correct!!

      Anyone got any crabs for me yet?
      Car loaded and ready to load the grub etc. in the morning.
      Eye’s still sore from doing the onions.

    • #60613

      And I done the onions specially for you!.

    • #60614

      i have amnesia

    • #60615

      Please don’t laugh.

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MvdpYgX4f7Q&NR=1

      Hope you are all catching lots.

    • #60616

      WET!!

    • #60617

      I think you will find that is ‘Fursty Ferret’ Pizza. Despite the inclement weather very pleasant day/Evening, food as supplied by Greenman & Pizza excellent, do not often hear the words ‘ Go on have another steak;. Sorry I had to ‘run’ got home in one piece clothing intact.
      There was mystery fisherman who booked a bit of the beach with a rod rest then left?

    • #60618

      I could stand the rain, but not the wind. Plus, not being able to cast that far, weed would sweep my line back to me almost immediately after casting which is really frustrating.

    • #60619

      June 30th GREAT Summer!

    • #60620

      12 hours, apart from 2.5 hrs watching F1 and eating and 1 hour mowing lawn, I’ve now managed to clean and pack away the kichen and fishing gear, what a mess, still some wet clothing hanging in workshop.
      All now clean and sorted for next time.
      I think it would of helped if I had parked on the bank, rather than the flooded muddy car park.
      Oh, also spent some time redesigning a new canopy, seeing that you all liked it so much, thought i may need something a bit better and bigger?
      Any complaints? refer to Ada’s bangers!!!!.

      Great to meet you all again, regardless of the problems and those missing!, but we did see a smutt.
      It’s a great venue [and we had the beach to ourselves for a change] but in the end the weather and poor turn out beat us, I will be eating BBQ stuff all week!!

      I think we should do another meet?? 28th July look’s good

      Maybe more people will turn up….and even stay!!!!!

    • #60623

      OK Arron, we are up for it, go for it, do new post [remember key words]
      check on comp matches on same tide.
      Comfirm the beach, meet time and tide times.
      If it’s fixed meet, do the ground work and set it up, venue and times etc, no change, thats it. Simple.
      Or do it as a meet and decide on the day to venue, would not like this, especially if extra gear{BBQ} involed.

      Book me in for the 28th.
