2010 review

Post by cuckoo »

Well 2010 wasnt really a great year for me on the fishing front , i spent far too much time on the hounds and chasing the bass and sole off the quay meaning my species count was the worst ever , another slow start to the year on the fishing which does make you think twice about what you are doing standing on a frozen beach watching motionless rod tips , but the lure is always too much and sees us going back time after time .

Ive met up with some cracking people and anglers this year , and been to some fantastic meets with lots of banter , makes it all worthwhile , 2010 saw me handing over a nice amount from charity matches to give to the hampshire and iow air ambulance , and it also saw me soaking wet after falling in the sea to save rob who had fallen in trying to land a hound , very funny now when you look back , any how enough waffling and on to the fish porn ...............

pb spotty ray 3 lb 8ozs .............

Handing over the funds to cherry from the hampshire and iow air ambulance ........

2011 will see me out more and getting back in the species hunt , and catching a flounder lol ! , thanks to all the lads ive fished with and had the pleasure to meet this year , look forward too meeting up again next year and doing it all over again !

Merry christmas and a happy new year to you all !

Sorry Lee - I forgot to commend you on the money you've raised for charity mate.

Keep up the good work.

Well done Lee!

New Year's resolution for me is to get over to TQ if it stays open as I never even saw a sole last year and the idea of livebaiting for bass is very appealing....

Hopefully get the chance to see you in action (probably around hound time, as I'm now totally hooked on them) and also determined to catch a ray this year - Sandwich Bay and/or Sheppey here I come once April rolls around!

Not a great autumn/winter this year but the cold should mean a successful spawn for the coddies with any luck, so maybe next year.... or the one after that? A few new species (and therefore PBs!) for me this year - both varieties of smuts in double figures, red mullet, and a couple of new wrasse species plus a PB thick-lipped grey so it wasn't all bad.

Still a few days of the year left, so I'm off to the Admiralty to see if I can add a lsd and codling to this year's tally!

Cheers to all - here's to tight lines in 2011.
