Fishing Bass In The Raz De Sein

Hello,

Boats are not ribs, but it's not an easy job...

I fished in this area last summer, with one of my friends (solent 600 115 etec), and it was a great day, but the weather was much better...



Antoine

Certainly doesn't look comfortable.

I'm glad they're using long lines and not using Gill nets.

Looks scary to me! What is the smallest size RIB that that would be fun to be in? I saw some similar looking water off Oregon Inlet, North Carolina last month, but I did not have the nerve or inclination to run the inlet.
By the way, what is the water temperature range in the video?

Went through there a few years ago and it was very strange water. Ran alongside the rough water until I found a passage through and opened up the engine before the water changed.

Once through you could see the bass boats fishing away.

Nice looking bass as well in that video.

Cheers

Mark

Where?

Codds
Were you in the UK in the 5.3?
The Raz would take some beating on springs with a nice 5m Atlantic swell!

Went through the Ortac channel (channel islands) last year on the mother ship (11m with rag and stick) and crapped myself, but nothing like as bad as the Raz on a good day!
