Especially as the bloomin lights never look like they do in the nice pictures.

You talking about those yellow flashing lights you saw off Scotland when you whizzed around Ireland

Lots of extra variables out there make it difficult!
And as for spotting a lobster pot in pitch black in a F8/heaving seas? ...not a chance

(Anyway I now think that yellow light was JW trying to be first at the Scottish Boat Jumble )


Happy New Resolutions!!! : RIBbing for the craic!!!

Havn't had too much time for fishing this year but what you want is to have a telescopic rod and some lures and feathers aboard for those spur-of-the-moment trips.
