The race was great this year, from my sailing perspective. Should have been great from a rib to!

Just as way of update, my Ribeye 6m running the ICE console is coming on. All being well will be testing her in the water next week!

fishing gear

Hi guys ,
Would be a sin to circumnavigate Ireland without fishing gear ! Question to me is only - what do I need there ??
I love fishing but have mostly experience with fishing on lakes and rivers - except a few trips to the Baltic sea where I never fished deeper than 30m for cod .
Can somebody recommend me the specs of rod / reel / line / size & weight of jigs ???
I have a 2.7m rod with 180g casting weight , a Shimano 4000 reel with 0.17mm Fireline and up to 100g jigs - I wonder whether this would impress the Irish fish somehow !

Hi Bushrider
You might be better with a bass spinning rod & reel 7kg breaking strain line
some red-gill lures,weighted lures & jelly shads. fish to catch will be Pollack,
Bass(hopefully) & Mackerel

Hi Mike ,
A light bass spinning rod is not a problem at all - with these rods I fish in Germany & Ukraine for bass , pikes and others ..
Thought I need some heavier equipment to fish deeper and with heavy jigs !

My Ribeye hit the water yesterday and performed brilliantly. Some set up to do but running 51 knots and the seat is working a treat! Very happy with her.
