Damn. You've sussed us then, a shower of mackerel hookers . It's not that we don't fish, we just keep our dirty little secrets close.... Why only last week my motley crew massacred far too many unfortunate Pout off the SS. Laurentic. I for one could use some instruction on the plethora of new tackle that has appeared over the last decade. So I may just shift my Trolling Grounds to off the WSF. Occasionally.

The EU hasn't banned fishing yet? It seems so... barbaric! What have those fish ever done to any of you?

best cod i ever caught was in an old 16 foot sib,big fishing comp at our club ,every one all hard boaters all shot straight out to see for miles ,i did not have the time so me and another club member a yachtie who had never been in a sib before went fishing just out past the surfline, kept drifting in and when we were about to get brooched we moved back out .we caught the only decent size fish of that day .,,,i used to use the boat for crab lobster potting, great in a sib,as we could drop pots right up to rocks and places other hard hull boaters wouldent dare go .

Curious... as a Zodiac Futura MK2 C owner...

Is it safe to fish off of these things?

Any issues.... are your crafts primarily all patches with little witness of original hull shown... kidding. But seriously, I have my son who will be (8) shortly, I just keep thinking of a scenario when he is reeling in at Mario Andretti speed and drives that tripple barb into the side of our craft....

Can a hook, lure, etc. easliy penetrate?

Any feedback or suggestions?

Thanks,
Edmund
