thanks mateNicely dione mate.
27 not enough! I use 28 at times in the shallows and thought I was pretty heavy!
What suit is that with?
Thanks for the reply I will keep posting here and occasionally in the guernsey thread - may not be in for about a week now will see what the weather has in store for us ? as it still seems very unsettled out there - the wind is switching directions too much !Well done mate, keep the reports up, if you write it, they will come!
thanks mate I see how can place picture in here only thing is I will have to take a digital picture from a photograph will give it a go and must remember to take a digital camera on my trips in future in case I spear something decentIt may take a while mate but keep at it and your thread will gain users, slowly.
Might also be worth printing up some little business card type things with the site name and address on and asking the boys in Apnea if they could hand them out to anyone who comes in buying spearing gear. They seemed very freindly when I was there.
To post a pic you need to be in the advanced reply part (just click "post reply" rather than using the quick reply box. Then click on the Insert Image button (mountain with yellow background), and select the picture from your computer using the Browse box. Upload it, and roberts your mothers brother.
Or you can upload it to your own webspace and link to it from there but thats a bit more complicated.
Sorry I'm confused. Why are you trying to spear 4lb bass? Your talking about reef. There is no reef in Jersey.hi all went in yesterday east coast - vis not bad 15ft or so within 20 minutes I saw 4 small bass around edge of low reef - encouraging - swam across over sand to another boulder weed and reef area - on the way saw one bass pos - 2 half pounds tempted but left him alone - in much closer up saw a loner speared my first bass of the season 3lb and did he go well - had some probs with my new gear - I must of lost weight as I HAD PROBLEMS getting down not enough weight on belt 27lbs - new mask leaking annoyingly in bottom of nose area - prob due to my old wet suit hood too tight around my mask -
apart from that great to get in !
hi hope your o.k. I might go in one night next week sometime don't know if any flattys in yet? hope weather holds out so bad this summer - hot today sunshine at least thats encouragingHey
Haven't been able to get in much. Had some sinus probs which gave me evil headaches behind my eye brows. Got antibiotics and a steriod spray and been on it for about 10 days, need to take them for 8 wks.
Went out for a quick dive on the east coast last night. Was a bit late for the tide but the sinuses were fine on the deeper dives so thats a relief. Was pretty murky (8 ft ish) and didn't see any fish. Still the main idea was to test the sinuses (that was what I told the wife any way).
Got the outlaws over this week and away at the weekend so hopefully the conditions will be good for next week.
