I thought I suffered this particular fool long enough. Firstly I said I did not wish to discuss anything and "please leave". That didn't work, so I suggested he was in need of psychiatric help, and

What annoyed me most was that I was being preached at whilst still groggy from an operative procedure (they inject a lot of radio-opaque dye which causes visual migraine, mild hallucinations, and obvi

Norma and I are up for another go at the zander................. and at the curry !

The 3kg PP has arrived, it looks like the claimed diameter of 0.06mm is right, i.e. it looks to me as thin as the 8.5lb jig silk. I'll try it out next week and see how it performs...!

 

I suspect it will be stronger than the jig silk even though it is not as striong ;)

So I'm officially hooked on Zander fishing!

 

It looks like I need to take a week off work in October so I was wondering if it's too late to add my name to the list?

 

Which date is the fishin? Are there enough people with equipment (sonar + drouges) to allow another person to join the fishin?

I will have to opt out this year, my cardiological tests are going to clash - unless the "waiting list manager" (you couldn't make it up !) postpones it again.

 

So there is at present a spare boat.........

 

Good luck to all who go a-zandering

Vagabond, sorry to hear you can't join us this time.

 

Errrm, let me talk to rich tomorrow and see whether we can fit you in - we may not have enough spare stuff but I'll let you know.

No problem Anderoo, I should be able to find one of my lure rods which is suitable and assuming you can point me in the direction of the required lures/jig heads I should be fine for all that, so it's just the more boat specific stuff really which would cause the problem.

 

Let me know if you can fit me in and I'll try and get the time of work (before you book any additional boats)

Hi Errrm, I think it is the boat experience/parafanalia that's the issue. I think we can get enough tackle together for you but it would mean 3 in a boat, which is possible but not ideal to be honest. Depending on how deep the drogue sits, it might not be possible for the middle person to fish without constant risk of catching the drogue. Yesterday, for example, it would have been extremely difficult.

 

Can you make the back-up day 2 weeks later? If so that might be the best option?

Hiya,

 

It sounds like it might be better to leave it then rather than come in at late notice, I'll make sure I sign up early for the next one :-).

 

I'll possibly book the week off in which the 2nd option is occuring so if there is a spot available without causing issues I could join.

 

What is the date of that one October 23rd?
