    foo You've gotta be in it to win it.

    That has got to be one of the best reports I have ever read. Thank you for taking the time and effort Rupert it was simply amazing and I actually got totally lost in the story, it was just like actually being there, phenomenal. If you were to publish all your fishing reports it would surely be a best seller, just a thought.

    Are you yakkers serious about fishing for a porgi ??
    If shy- torque can drift 3/4 of a mile unnoticed during a hook up just imagine the distance an angry porgi would pull a yak in an hour or more, madness total madness leave it to the experts.

    Well done lads and what a cracking report Rupert that certainly was a day to remember and I notice you are not that far from land. The door in the stern of the boat must make things allot easyer as well.

    That was a great read hope I never fall in that takes the thought of getting involved in Kayaking out of my mind.

    Great stuff good luck on your next trip Tightlines Chris

    To be honest it was spot on mate, weather was brilliant, racing was awesome and to do quite a few laps around the circuit made my week, particularly on the mountain section where the road is closed and made one way only, which means you can hammer it and not worry about oncoming traffic.

    Hi Rupert,

    I was reading one of your earlier shark articles on the site, and read that you were considering fishing for sharks on the drift. Have you given any more thought to this idea ?? :

    I haven't done anymore on the drift for a couple of years, so can't really advise. I know that what the Welsh sharking guys still use as their first line of attack. If I was fishing on a big tide, I'd certainly be tempted to give it a go, as keeping float fished baits at the correct depth from an anchored boat in a big tide is tricky. Drifting on a big tide would also be best if it was wind against tide, or better still, wind cross tide to get the scent trail working with maximum coverage.

    Exactly what I was about to say. Superb report mate, would hate to battle a fish for that long and have the line go slack though :scared: :wounded:

    Another report will follow in due course telling the story of the rest of the summers sharking. :yes:

    I've had four days sharking since writing this report and have at least another six days ahead. I've been helping CEFAS who have a porbeagle shark satellite tagging programme in the South West and the North sea (where I come in). Their programme has not gone according to plan in the S.W. and despite using local rod and line sharking experts and using commercial longliners, not a single porbeagle shark has been caught and tagged.

    I've got some good pictures etc, but my eventual Post needs to be approved by the CEFAS press office first, so please bear with me guys.

    I'm due to be at sea Monday to Thursday this week. Appart from luck being on our side, all we need now is a kind forecast................... :suspious:
