A fairly mirrored couple of sessions to the previous day. Damo had finished his tour of duty, choosing instead to follow the Seagull's fortunes. The seagulls are apparently Brighton's football club. Strange, coz I thought the seagulls were those fecking abnoxious shite...

Joining Mark and Damo as they continue their weeks holiday on BIF1 for the first sailing were Father and son returnee's Paul and Chris. With what breeze there was, pushing from the east I was quite hopeful for a bit of speed on the drift, despite the neap tide, so head...

With just Mark and Damo booked on for first sailing, it was an opportunity to leave the ever popular gurnards alone for a session and focus on the serious matter of looking for a spring cod. With a nice catch coming up recently over towards the isle of wight, I still b...

Sailing a little earlier to avoid low tide issues (marina is desperate for a good dredging currently and this is likely to be a bigger problem for me before it is resolved) and with my crew's (Mark, Damo, Phil and Ashley) agreement, we spend the first hour of the first...

Damo, Mark, and return of one of my Lee's (strangely the other one wanted on as well, but I was sold out...) were joined by my old mucker Andy, and we headed straight to... the cod ground... Sailing on dead low, once I had managed to spoil my own mood by dropping my Sa...

With the wind a very blustery Northerly for the morning, I decided to only run an afternoon sailing. Three on board, all previous BIF1'ers. Scott, Steve and Mackie. I had actually fueled early and popped out for 40 minutes, to get a feel for sea conditions. A bit bounc...

A full boat set for both sailings, and a good forecast, with N winds set to be the case all day. Hah!! Somebody forgot to let the wind read the script as it turned out. But first sailing, first sailing was text book awesome. 

On board, regulars Damo, Mark, Garry, and a...

After todays trip, I can firmly confirm that the sea is ALIVE once more, and then some. Indeed, so many gurnards down below, that the plaice are not getting a look in. Not that I have a problem with that. Gurnards are very determined battlers, and keep people smiling....

With the knowledge gleaned from yesterdays sailing, and with just a single sailing planned, I had the flexibility to move the actual sailing time to coincide with the early ebb, which is when it had fished so well yesterday. And I am so happy I did. A very interesting...

Two sailings today, and just one angler on each. First, Armando, who was quite happy to fish for plaice. Which I was very happy about, after yesterdays fishless shadding shenanigans. So, we plaiced. Took a little while to find them, but when we did find a patch, I stuc...
