Most Recent Fishing Trip

With a brilliant forecast for Tuesday we thought we'd take the 'lilo' out for a spin.

Launched at Walton on the Naze (Essex) and headed for the Shipwash bank off of Harwich.

Anchored up on some cracking broken ground just outside the shipping lane and had Cod, mostly 7-10lb, from the off.

Used about 20 litres for the 30 mile round trip, and with the calm conditions it only took us about 35 minutes to get out.

Ended up taking 11 good sized Cod home for the freezer.



Considering that the best fishing presents itself in different areas, season to to season, year to year......who the hell would want a marina berthed boat, or one restricted to concrete slips! lol

SIBs are the ultimate fishing machine, no question.

Nice one Sharkbyte.
30 miles for 24, not bad. I know a lot of anglers would kill for that kind of economy.

I am aiming to finish my boat this weekend, and will be posting pictures soon. It was seeing your boat that inspired me to aim for something similar. Although it has turned out to be not very similar, I am pleased with it.

Don't know if I would have the balls to head 15 miles off, but I guess I will head out a little more, then a little more...

Well done on your fish. Any pictures so I can live vicariously whilst mine awaits completion?

Geoff

Interesting post. We did a lot of fishing last year and it was bloody awful. Even the local fisherman were complaining that it was poor. Launched from Rosehearty to Gardenstown (Moray Firth), Stonehaven to Inverbervie (NE coast) and even tried west coast of Lewis, probably 5 miles out. Fishing was better with decent sized pollack, red gurnard, mackeral and saith. Hoping this season is better.

Used the freshest bait, peeler crab, squid, rag and lug worm, etc.

Here's a pic of my brother with the best fish of the day @ 11.5lb

One small correction, we only used about 15 litres of fuel, not the 20 that I originally quoted.

All good.


Looking forward to seeing your finished boat, Geoff. I a sure that it will give you numerous hours of fun, much as ours continues to do.




Hi Spartacus

Good luck this season, it would certainly be a great deal easier if fish weren't so mobile!

Hi Shane

Hopefully the cod will still be around for another few weeks, the water temp is still below average....I desperately want that 20+'er this year! lol.

With big smoothies, stingrays, thornbacks, sole and tope etc. on offer, let's hope that this summer is whole lot kinder than the last one.
