Nothing wrong with Sand Mate!..One of My best EVER Bass (Boat) Fishing session was over the Skerries out of Dartmouth,Like the Sahara on the Sounder!

Dawlish Warren(Sand Central!) is Plenty Good off the Beach too when the Conditions are right.....As are all the Very Famous Bass Strand-Storm Type Beaches in Irland.Give it a go Steve..You may just surprise yourself

you wouldnt launch at lo water on the 22nd. the water will be off the end of the slip from 0314 til 0638 and also between 1537 and 1907. At those times the water should be right at the drop off at the slip end so it needs a fair bit of leeway either side of that. Launching nearer low than high is much easier. The angle of the slip at the top after "the dogleg" is much shallower and the tide can kick up sone goodly waves. I would prefer to be down less than say 6m.

Bass?? the lads fish commercialy by rod n line for 'em but it needs a **** loada local knowledge Better be content to bottom fish for plaice with black or blowlug around the outside of walney and hope the odd wandering bass turns up for ya. The plaice fishing there was absolutely out of this world 15 years ago but then our european b******, sorry cousins came a visiting Still the odd one around if youre lucky.

on sunday the tide will go off at 1620 but that is far, far too late for a guaranteed retrieve especially if there are a lotta people queueing up for it. You have been warned need to be in well before that. Even so it will be muddy down at the bottom of the slip

And dont run aground on the bank opposite or it will be a long wait

Thanks for that Dave, on the Sunday return what would be the better time for recovery back at Knott End.

Steve, I am currently swapping over my car and waiting for new one and have took my towbar off my current one, so I am thinking of launching from Ty Calch and boating up to Piel Island on the friday. Looking at google earth it looks to be a little further than crossing to Ireland (for which I had enough fuel) and I have got four X 20 litre fuel cans. My concerns are, 1. Crossing the shipping lanes into Liverpool/Heysham. 2. Ensuring that I have enough fuel, and obtaining fuel for the return journey (via jerry cans probably??) 3. Confirming where everybody is camping and there is availability for two nights stay. 4. The weather!! As soon as I am certain that I will be going I will let you know more. Unless my new car is here, tow bar can be fitted same day that I get it, other than that I may pop up and hitch a ride over with someone else, so I will keep you informed

Council slip but no paperwork needed. As Dave says it can be a tricky launch especially if the wind is up

To balance that though we will have many pairs of hands to help get to RIBS under power. Once your going its fine its the getting off the trailer and staying in one place while engines are started that can be a problem

I'm other words ill bring me dry suit
