Sounds good Stray :D

Do you use bait much or mainly shads? And what kind of depths are we in?

Plastics are all good at this time of year, 2-6oz lead, 3ft trace bounced along the bottom or slow retrieve. Feathers, Daylites etc will take Mackerel, Cod, Coaleys and Pollock. The Scaurs go West to East, flood is North to South, Ebb is South to North, slack water is a couple of hours after the tide turns and lasts about an hour. So even if you just drift around you'll go over fish at some point. Depth varies from 20 to 60ft plus.

Early days yet, but keep an eye on that high pressure in the mid Atlantic.

It's not about numbers, if the weather is right on the day and you can and want to, you go, if it isn't or you can't you don't. The forecast for over here has gone from pants, to promising, to hmmmm it might be ok, all in the space of a few days. It'll be Thursday or even Friday evening before a call is made, and even then I'd probably get up early Saturday morning to check before people set off.

I'd be looking to launch about 8am Pete, get a couple of hours fishing on the Ebb, a mooch about, then a couple of hours fishing the flood. But don't hold your breath, the forecast has gone to pants again. :(

Don't think I could get there for that time it's at least a 2 hour drive. So I would have to set off at 5am to get there in time to set up. So I'm going to give it a miss this time guys.

Looking at the forecast now, it's looking doubtful, but it might change again.
