Sounds like a good cruise to me

I wouldn't mind fishing the Beaulieu River if anyone fancies that?

Great rigs and last very well. Cut down to 3 hooks ideally though. Available easily from Veals Mail Order in Bristol or your local tackle shop possibly.

As for joining forces I'm currently changing the engine mounts on the 90 but hope to get out next weekend, either from Poole or more hopefully Kimmeridge if conditions are favourable..

Will update later in the week. I am no expert though. I have been shore fishing since I was 10 but only recently getting to grips with this boat fishing...

If you are Portsmouth way then it's difficult to keep the Makerel out of the boat (two hours befor high tide) around all the forts! Have caught bass on lures, although I think they are a bit spoiled for choice at the moment as there ar so many Makerel about.

Used a big lure to deter the Makerel and caught a bass that was barely bigger than the lure!!!

Have seen large shoals of bass - but they weren't interested in my lures! think I need help

Have also seen Porpoises feeding on the Makerel around the forts!!!

Suffice to say - freezer full of makerel, but a bit low on bass!!

Luckily, a fishing boat came into the Camber Dock last week and gave me a huge bag of Monkfish, Lemon Sole, & Plaice, so the freezer is well stocked!

May be we should do a trip out to the forts then and get Hightower along for some tips, I will have space on my rib if driver 1 can travel

Been fishing there with Nos but we blanked if I remember correctly

Sounds good to me! But don't ask me for tips, this has been a bad year for me for fishing. I went out on Saturday to put the rejuvenated sounder though it's paces and try for Bass with Sand eel but blanked but as Dry Run as already said, freezer is stocked well with Mackerel though.

If you're into Mackeral (we are as it's all we can catch, just as well we love 'em) one of these is a must.

That's a bit pricey. Isn't there something cheaper out there?
