Hi from Teignmouth

Hi all and happy Christmas.
After lurking for a while I thought it was about time I introduced myself.
My wife Tina and I have returned to ribs following the kids growing and struggling to justify the costs of a larger boat.
We weren't sure how we would adapt to tidal sea access and the basic nature of a rib again but it has been a great first year and we both have loved it.
I would like to say thanks for the information that I have sourced via ribnet, it has been extremely helpful in many ways, people that share there knowledge and experiences probably don't realise the number of people that benefit from this excellent resource.
Rob.

Hi Maximus,
Thanks for the welcome, the boat is stored 5 mins from home, in a boat yard that has its own slip. The only restriction is the weather and tide to getting afloat. It is a great place to cruise from with great destination close at hand.
We look forward to meeting you and other ribnet's.
Cheers,
Rob.

Great cruising area, had many a good day out from Teignmouth... great launching point to get down to Dartmouth and Salcombe.

Had many a great day at Teignmouth, just under 2hrs 45 from bham, can be on the water very quickly.

Left or right out of the estuary, food in torquay or exmouth.

Put simply we love it, we have had some really great days there, as good as the med on a good day. Last year was awesome at least six trips.

Will keep an eye out for you, welcome back to boating

It really is a great cruising area, the only problem is there are no fish. After trying on many occasions to catch a bass and failing, I have concluded that there aren't any, apart from one deluded pollock. Click image for larger version

I'm sorry you have not had much luck....but believe me there's plenty of Good Fishing to be had in the Area!
If you want to Bag up with Mackies "Hope's Nose" is closest to a "Guaranteed" spot as you'll find anywhere!!!
Pluss Some good Bass fishing to had on Plugs....and in the River Mouth and Estuary, the Skerries are a must destination if you can get some Live Sandeels!,,,both for decent sized Bass and Flatties including Turbot!
Hope you have better luck in 2015!

Mackies have never been a problem it's the elusive bass that has been hard to catch.
I even tried spying on other boats to see what method they were using. It didn't help but it amused the wife, me with the binoculars watching others fishing :-0
Let's hope 2015 is more successful :-)
