Well today was excellent up till about 1pm , then FOG FOG FOG!

all day, getting back in to langstone harbour with less than 50metres visability was.... interesting, a learning curve shall we say!

still caught a "devil fish" and loadsa crabs, chucked em all back

also discover that my grapnel anchor is pretty lousy, even for a small boat like mine, so im going to get a better one - any recommendations ?

Olly

Supprised you caught anything off Langstone. Half the world and their dog were out the on Friday. Must have been a worm drowning competition or summut.

Glad you enjoyed the fog.

We came back from Yarmouth and hit the fog at the entrance to Portsmouth habourabout about 4.30 by the time we went past southsea pier we could not see the shore thank god for gps and map overlays we got into Langstone and moored up the accuracy of the gps was unbeliveable. and yes i was very uneasy about the fog.thinking that a safe passage was all down to a 5 amp fuse.Ollyit did i see you at Northney marina Saturday You had the silver van ?

Navigation wasn't an issue for me too much, what did worry me was meeting other traffic "head on". I did see one RIB cruising IMHO much too fast for the conditions if he'd hit an on comming cruiser or Yacht, I hate to imaging!!!

Olly I was using Rag and squid, my local fishing tackel shop (Rovers) told me that Winners weren't fishing too well and suggested that finding a hole or trench off of Browndown might produce a small Ray, Bass and some flatties.

I'd like to go out with you some time Olly, perhaps a little later in the season when the summer fish are more established. I do fancy a bit of Mackrel fishing one night though, but will have to wait till May.

Andy
