Another early start to meet up with Bazza Luxton for a days fishing.

 

Barry did text me at 02:56 that the M26 was closed, i was already i the car and did not pick it up.

Signs were up on the M20 but said M26 closed Junction 2A thought would have to go up to Swanley and join M25.

But a couple of trucks and cars pulled off on to the M26 in front of me so though it was just the exit J2A that was closed.

No such luck, diverted immediately  off followed diversion for a couple of mile then the signs disappeared, in pitch black and pouring rain i had no idea where is was.

So just went straight straight, no signs for Motorway anywhere. Eventually joined M25 near Clackett lane !

 

I was now going to be late, got to Gosport and about a mile from the port i got flashed by a camara, i looked down and was doing 35 in a 30, crap.

 

Joined the crew on the boat and was immediately handed a sausage sandwich, most excellent. That's when the ripping from the crew began,

which lasted all day. They had plenty of opportunity as it was a 2.5 hour steam out and 3 back.

 

Little lumpy on the way out and did not notice my ruck sack had knocked and fallen onto the deck. It got soaked along with my camara.

Which refused to turn on and even now does not. Sea water fried it it's now dead.

 

50 miles out and sea was quickly flattening off, which was nice as i was experiencing de ja vue from 2 weeks ago.

 

Turned out a nice  sunny & warm afternoon.

 

The fishing, not a red letter day, but plenty of these came out for everyone....

The surprise, we had just cleared a drift over a wreck, when the skipper asked bring in the lines for the next drift.

I had made about 50 turns back onto the reel when BANG ! my rod buckled over. What the heck.

A good 5 minute battle and the fish breaks the surface. The skipper shouts "Christ ! it's a Coalfish"

Eh? i think, we are not in Norway.

 

Sure enough a nice little Coalfish, result....I was well made up. Made my day.

Cheers Barry for getting the photo's for me, saved the day.

 

Long drive back, delays at the top of the A3, Tpre pressure warning can on on M25, had to stop at Clackett to put air in, more rain on M20

very tired. Did i care ? Nope :fishing1:

Those coalfish scrap like buggery don't they Sean. I've had a few from the Irish Sea and they scrap all the way up to the boat....well done!


Eating wild caught fish is good for my health, reduces food miles and keeps me fit trying to catch them........it's my choice to do it, not yours to stop me!

Another chance for a coalie on the 24th of this month, who wants a chance of full up freezer boxes of fillets? Spaces won't be open for very long, good skipper and a crack at the same time.

 Free to choose apart from the ones where the trust poked their nose in. Common eel. tope. Bass and sea bream. All restricted.

 
New for 2016 TAT are the main instigators for the demise of the u k bass charter boat industry, where they went screaming off to parliament and for the first time assisting so called angling gurus set up bass take bans with the e u using rubbish exaggerated info collected by ices from anglers, they must be very proud.

Upgrade, the door has been closed with regards to anglers being linked to the e u superstate and the failed c f p. So TAT will no longer need to pay monies to the EAA anymore as that org is no longer relevant to the u k . Goodbye to the europeon anglers alliance and pathetic restrictions from the e u.

Angling is better than politics, ban politics from angling.
 
Consumer of bass. where is the evidence that the u k bass stock need angling trust protection. Why won't you work with your peers instead of castigating them. They have the answer.

Recipie's for mullet stew more than welcomed.
 
Angling sanitation trust and kent and sussex sea anglers org delete's and blocks rsa's alternative opinion on their face book site. Although they claim to rep all.
 
new for 2014. where is the evidence that the south coast bream stock need the angling trust? Your campaign has no evidence. Why won't you work with your peers, the inshore under tens? As opposed to alienating them? Angling trust failed big time re bait digging, even fish legal attempted to intervene and failed, all for what, nothing.
 
Looks like the sea angling reps have been coerced by the ifca's to compose sea angling strategy's that the ifca's at some stage will look at drafting into legislation to manage the rsa, because  they like wasting tax payers money. That's without asking the rsa btw. You know who you are..
