Had to stay in on Saturday to meet the gas fitter. The only fishable day grrr. Looks like plenty caught, well done. Mackerel seem to be around Bembridge.

Am off to northern Norway tomorrow for a few days fishing in the Arctic Circle. Lets hope the mackerel have turned up in force by time I get back !

Was stationed in Belize for some jungle training - know what you mean !

Good luck in Norway! You never know the the mackerel but personally I think there needs o be a close season for commercial fishing to give the fish a chance to breed and recover for some years until we see numbers again...if they left them alone for a while they could still bounce back, if it continues they will soon be extinct!
Someone robbed whilst they slept the second night I was here. Day before last a guide and US client shot dead whilst fishing of San Pedro by a drive by skiff.
The fishing is interesting but the country is certainly in a difficult place.

Blimey Johnny! And I thought the Solent had some dodgy characters!

Agree with the idea of protecting the fish. With purpose built boats out of Scotland taking 500 tons of Mackerel in one sweep of their nets, they are being wiped out very fast.

what we need is ww3 fought on a traditonnal basis no nukes make it last a good 5 years   no one   would   dare put to sea   as they would   get   blown up or shot   sort out a peace treaty   then   when all sorted   we could   go out 500 yards and   catch as many   good fish as you want   mmmmmm who to pick on frogs   jerry or ruskies
