Cheers Shane,

When your fishing out of Minnis and using peeler crabs, do you take the shells off and elasticate them to the hook, or put them on whole? I was thinking of putting one on whole, if so where do I hook it?

Thanks

Daryl

Take the shells off all peelers and elasticate them to the hook, big crabs cut in half if a good size two baits then ,samller ones put on whole ,if you got hard backs chuck em on whole,smuts like them aswell,not as good as peeler tho in my opinion,i take all the legs off mine,sometimes keep on two legs.

Thorny,

What other baits would you recommend to use? I thought perhaps peelers would be the best bait and maybe some ragworm.

Peeler for smoothounds,Bluey,Squid for the thornbacks,rag and lug on a light spinning rod will pick up Bass,whiting,dogs,some times a hound will grab hold,dam good fun on a light rod.we fish 1 uptider each,1 spinning rod each,as its your first time i would fish one rod ,get use to the boat and how you manage the gear on it,hold them rods tho ,hounds will pull them straight in.

Hi Thorny,

I reckon with a 2 stroke, trimmed correctly you should get at least 16 knots and maybe close to 20. Got my life jackets, flares, anchor chain and some new anchor warp. I've virtually got everything now. I suppose we're all guilty of trying to pack too much into a SIB!!

I just want to have everything, to cover every possible senario.

Are you out fishing at the weekend Thorny?

Crikey oh riley Thorny,

That's dedication. What's with the beach fishing, now that you've got the Earl? The reason I got my SIB is that I was fed up catching little or nothing from the beach! Good luck though. I've heard that they have been getting plenty of Thornbacks fom the beach at Sandwich Bay.

Hi Thornry,

I will definitely do that one weekend. I've been looking at fishfinders. What do you think of the Humminbird 110 fishing buddy? I like the way the unit clamps onto the transom. Do you think it will still give a good read out being right next to the outboard?

Thorny,

Are you using a suction pad to mount the tranducer, and if so where do you mount it? How much are they, and do they run off batteries?

I payed about £160 quid i seem to recall? and the suction pad works great on my seago 2.70 sib,but i have had to make a bracket and a G clamp for the Earl,this will be tried out sat for the first time,self bailers stop me from sticking it on with the suction cap.there must be cheaper out there with a suction cap,google up im sure there will be one.
