But hey..I don't have to explain it to another mulleteer, do I? ;-)
Best of luck for the season. :-)

Mulleting or diving? This weekend? Might sound strange but I'd go diving, only 'cos I've never done it though, only snorkelling.
How's your antique bottle collection? ;-)

I didn't see any mullet, and there were very few fish or any type around - a couple of wrasse and that was it.
The lobsters have started to return to the shallower water again which is a good sign that the water is warming up. I saw two beauties in less than 10 meters of water.
There were also hordes of Sea Hares, presumably mating.
Here's a few of the pics from the dive:-

I guess Sea Hares mate like 'rabbits'?
Anyway, on the Murret front we get an amazing phenomenon called 'Gold Fever' here in the Solent ....

No but I can feel the need to come out of hibernation... start dusting down and cleaning up the rods and reels, and sort out the terminal bits and bobs.....
Has anyone seen the return of the grey beasts yet?
Paul - Looks like I'm not going to make it over this summer Too many jobs to do around the house, and too little money whilst Karen finishes off the PhD .. but it may give me a chance to update the Diary and the Aquarium, and fish some alternative venues ... anyone want to fish with the mad bloke with the grey hair
If we do get a chance then it will be last minute stuff via at the end of Aug, and fly in for a week, in which case the fishing will still be limited with all the people we'll need to see on the island ......
I've spoken to Chris B and let him know, and I'm sure he'd be up for a few outings if your game..... if things work out, maybe I'll get a chance to spend a week over during half term in Oct .. but no promises..
Leon - are you doing a novice medway fishin-in this year, and if so have you a date in mind????
If I can wangle things I may be able to come down over may / june on the odd wednesday if your at a loose end - in between all the jobs your dear lady wife now has you doing in your lazy retirement days ...
