Zander fish-in - October


Recommended Posts

If you are going to spend a day in a boat take and inflateable pile cushion

 

Yes!

 

Or at least something soft. I use an unhooking mat held down with bungie cords (to stop it blowing away).

And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music

Here you go, Steve wins! For a little while I thought it was the mother of all perch or zander!   P.s. it nailed the lure and was neatly hooked in the bottom lip! All those years at Wingham and we w

Norma and I had a couple of days birding after the fish in, and have only just now reached home.   Like Steve Walker we had trouble with our depth finder - the gunwale was too thick for our Humminbi

You surreptitiously attach it to the D-ring on the back of your victim's chest waders and then drop it into the current!

Yes them big old Cobles are good boats to fish from Matt much better than our ones at Wingham. Cushions/boat seats etc are a must but I tend not to take ass much food with me these days......

Ha ha!

 

As I'll need to book boats for this I think I'll leave it open for a few more days and then try to get it arranged. If others then want to join later we can see if other boats are available.

 

Can those who have expressed an interest please reply and say whether a weekday is OK or if it has to be a weekend, and any dates in Oct you definitely can't do - thanks.

 

PS Budgie, do you have a portable fishfinder?

All of October free at the moment and can do weekdays.

 

The boats look as if they might be made of combustible material, I'll delete the disposable BBQ from the shopping list.

Hmm disposable BBQ near a petrol tank over 100ft of water might not be the best idea ;)

 

(BTW life jackets are provided...!)

PS if you want to get a cheap echo sounder you could get something like this: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Wireless-Fish-Finder-Sonar-Aerial-River-Lake-Sea-/290424787150?pt=UK_SportingGoods_FishingAcces_RL&hash=item439eaa90ce

 

Or use a smartcast.

 

Knowing what depth you're fishing over is very useful, especially when it comes to locating more fish once you've found what depth they're at.

 

Having said that I have fished there before without one and caught plenty but it does mean you're drifting around blind.

Might create an interesting feature to fish to....

 

I can't do the weekends I mentioned. Basically I can't do the 9th to the 12th or 18th to the 23rd. Sundays are better than Saturdays. I can probably do weekdays exlcudibg above!
