Total number of posts on shore fishing forums = 468. Total number of posts on boat fishing forums = 15. What does this tell us?

(Our esteamed leader mrix would wish for only witty and/or humorous posts only I'm sure!!)

Tight lines!!

I thought the saying was if you want to go sea fishing you fished from the shore and if you wanted to actually catch fish you went fishing from a boat :lol: or something like that :lol: ....... so according to the numbers most dont want to catch fish just go fishing :lol:

Ah,mrix,it dont matter where you fish from,shore or boat,my mate went out in his boat on sunday and caught nothing after 4 hours at the same time a few mates caught decent codling up to 6lb from shore,

hi everyone, new here like the forum,

Just bought a new 18ft boat and cant wait to get one some wrecks, the beauty of boat fishing is you can try so many areas in a small amount of time and you can also get to the areas where BIG fish hold up. With a GPS just go from wreck to wreck!!

Dont think i have really ever enjoyed catching from the beach as much as a boat

Answer is quite simple folks: Number of folk who can afford a boat (minimum £3,000 for something decent) is limited. Plus most skippers charge at least £30 for a day - also expensive especially if you are a pensioner like me. Fortunately I now have an arrangement with a bloke who has a small boat and we go out regularly when weather is calm. ( not even pro skippers go out when it is more than force 5 - too dam uncomfortable and dangerous) I suggest that those with boats should be prepared to share with those who do not, that way your trip costs are reduced and folk like me get a good day out for say £10 vs the £30 which pro skippers charge. I am not deprecating pro skippers by the way, they go out further than small boats and most give a good service but blokes like me just cannot afford £30/£50 a day very often.

i think boat fishing and shore fishing is quite different.
and these days most of the ppl i met that do boat fishing are those usually busy with work and if they manage to get some leave, they dun mind paying over the odds to go for a boat trip.

i myself start to do more boat fishing, be it light tackles or heavy big game, partly because of time constraits and when theres time to spare, i rather be reeling in the fishes rather den spending time on the shore waiting for fish to strike IMO. :D

shore or boat
