Not exactly

Sometimes it's very difficult to get a nice sibbing crew or a sibbing crew at all, in my particular case had the same problem down here, so have sold sibs to friends to go sibbing around, visited marinas to look for other sibbers as well to go sibbing around with them. Try to look for sibbers in your area, search for marinas if available, go out with best friend, girl friend, may encounter other sibbers while sibbing.

Your sib & engine is very basic, so don't go too far, coastal sib with precaution.

Happy search & Happy Sibbing

Hi TBF,

Thought i recognised you from WSF! Changed my name on here to protect the innocent lol.

I see you live in gravesend. Could you not launch into the Thames and have a long slow chug out to sea from there?

Phil

Yeah, saftey should always come 1st.

Ive only been out 2 or 3 times to be honest, its difficult getting the weather on a weekend when im not working, babysitting, seeing my daughter etc. Living in East grinstead, its not like the sea is on my doorstep which again adds to the difficulty.

That said, I did venture out to Beachy Head on Sunday albeit on a choppy sea with my mate and we were straight into the mackeral ( which is what i originally intended to fish soley for when i bought the boat) caught 21 between us in a 1hr session approx half a mile out, I was surprised how shallow it was that far out, thought all my line would be in the sea!!

We went prawning first for live prawns to use as bait for Bassing and we got around 30-40 which was great, unfortuantly, my anchor had not arrived by then and we were drifting faster than the fish could chase the bait so returned the prawns to the sea lol.

Do you find your fishfinder valuable in finding the right spot? I am now hankering after one too!

Phil
