Let him out more, itís the novelty of cat that makes them hungry for it, so if he is eating more and more cat he will soon get bored of it. Incidentally in the UK a cat is usually known as a pussy. Des

Columbiachop.....

Lots of people fish from RIBS over here in the UK.
My eldest son and myself had a certain degree of luck over the past couple of years on both hardboats and ribs.
Ribs do provide a stable platform at rest and enable you to move from one place to the next in comfort/safety and with a certain degree of speed.
Of course there are other boats that do that, and in some circumstances with better facilities for fishermen than some ribs....but like the man said in answer to....."what is the best boat to fish from?" it's the boat under you when you catch your best fish.
IMHO of course.

I generally fish for Bass and catch Mackerel. Fish for Sole and catch Flounder.

You get the idea.
I'm not the worlds most scientific fisherman. I am generally happy with a bucket load of Mackerel (last of this summers was on the barbie last night as it happens).

My eldest and I will be making more efforts to locate Mr and Mrs Bass next year though.

Live shrimp, works a treat. Bass bait of the very highest order. It takes a bit of effort to net around the quays and rocks at low tide, but you'll be surprised how many you catch. When in a bucket on board keep out of the sun and regularly chage the water or they'll die. A tupperware box with a lid is good. Drill lots of small holes in it, attach a bit of cord and keep it and the shrimps over the side.

I'd be happy with ANYTHING... So far this year in 6 trips where I've fished I've come up with 2 undersize bass, a baby bream a gurnard,a dogfish and a shitload of bloody wrasse. Must be doing something wrong, but there's no info anywhere on the web about baiting techniques, fishing depths etc...Most sites cover the basics and assume you automatically know the rest so the stuff that actually gets you fish is missing.

What size shrimp are you talking mullolnan?
