Nice few days in Poole

Just got back from a lovely few days in Poole. We arrive Saturday morning and got a visitor mooring at Salterns Marina and paid for use of the slipway. The staff there are great and so helpful. I must add the facilityís are also great. Including the fact they have a fuel pump there so re fuelling is easy £1.60ish a litre so not overly steep.

We did around 120 miles in 3 days on the rib visiting many beaches including sandbanks, Lulworth cove, Durdledoor, swanage bay & Bournemouth pier.

Plenty of makrel caught too! I couldnít recommend Salterns marina enough and also thistle hotel on the quay was decent enough to stay in!

Pics attached for those who are interested...

Excellent, glad you enjoyed Poole, looks like you had some good weather to allow you to explore a bit!

We used to keep our old RIB at Salterns and whilst not the cheapest, we always had excellent service from the team there.

I think I saw you washing your boat off on the slip yesterday morning? I have used Salterns for the last couple of years and they are great. The weather is not as good now but we had a nice trip up to Wareham yesterday.

We fished of St Albans head around 0.4 mile off which was amazingly 180ft of water. Plenty of Mackeral there on white feathers. Fishing from bottom to top slowly reeling in while jigging most success at around 50ft drifting!

We had around 20 in an hour

We also drifted just off durlston bay which proved ok we wasnít there long but had 6 or 7. Other than that there wasnít many about. We just looked for the gulls and stopped where they or the charter boats were.

I'm no fisherman, but quite often just tow some feathers on paravanes off the stern of the sailing yacht, and especially around the headlands (Old Harry, Durlston, St. Alban's, etc.) mackerel are often very easy to catch.

Not guaranteed though, so I assume there's some tide or weather conditions they prefer more than others, I just have no idea what they might be!
