NEWSFLASH: F*CKING COLD

So I managed the first outing of the year on Friday and the general consensus was cold...very cold. It was so bad that I did have to check my driving license to remind me what my gender was post dive! It was a typical early season dive that did not feel remotely fishy but it did clear a few Christmas cobwebs.

Hopefully Friday PM will allow a small vis window if this glorious weather stays settled.

Absolutely nothing matey! I did not even bother putting a gun in my car so entertained my self with snooping under a few ledges, kidding myself that I would find a cod in a crevice.

Thanks for the update, I may pick your ear come Friday for a more up-to-date vis report :)

I have fished most of the Northumberland coast and have a few favoured spots that are very sheltered so my Mrs feels comfortable getting in but have not really explored any deeper marks due to lacking a serious spearo buddy as Broseidon never feels like making a trip oop Norf!

I found myself quite surprised to see some people fishing over towards Sunderland way around the gares and having relatively successful trips but I do not fancy fishing there in the slightest hah.
