Hopeless. To small and too fragile. Just about ok for catching bait, or entertaining the kids.

There are some about 3 miles north of you and another lot half way to the Isle of Wight, badly marked with the bouy nearly under water.

Only just saw them though the rain at first light. That would have really pissed me off picking one of those up after a wet night crossing the channel. At least the French at St Vaast have poles with flags on them.

Sorry we didn't have time to pop in and say hi, it was just a poo stop for the hound before the tide turned against us, next year,

Off at a slight tangent, but I use these hooks for holding cylinders against the rack on my rib.

They also do creels and other stuff.

Show us a piccy then!

I'm going to be testing using Stornaway's "toggles" as a way of securing the ooddles of rope for shot lines on a dive rib. New rope locker might be a bit bigger than on last boat so may not need them.

Super, cheers looks well neat. I still havent resolved how we best trussed up Vixens rack. Will ponder this. Did wonder about splashing out on an all stainless ratchet strap - though in a club environment this would be an expensive item to keep losing.

If memory serves me corectly (from when I used to be a British Sea Fisheries Officer) you are allowed to fish up to 6 pots without any sort of licence

also from talking to my dad, if you are after lobster, keep well away from any fresh water source and use as green a bait as possible (i.e, bait left to rott for a fair length of time, been told cat food also works well due to the oils in the food)

it used to be that in my area 6 pots with no permit but as said in the earlier posts a lot now depends on what part of the uk you live in , its best to check out for your particular area as it not only applys boaters but shore fishermen/ divers and raking crabs out from the beach , ,,,,,,,seems to be green for lobbys and fresh bait for crab ,,,,and if you get a Hag fishcaught in your pot you wont get anything in it for months and months even if you try cleaning the slime and then towing it behind the boat for a few days. mart

Have you seen a hagfish then? Revolting but amazing creatures. Been around uncharged for about 600 million years.

Suprisingly little is known about them except they can make enough slime in a few minutes to fill a 20L bucket!!!

They eat their way into live and dead bodies and can tie themselves in knots.
