Yesterday on the Mersey

Postby Blue topaz » Mon Mar 12, 2018 5:37 pm

The warm airflow, small tide,light winds and daylight timings made Sunday 11th an ideal fishing day. My eldest came over from Leeds and we set off at daft o'clock to get prepared and for the lock out at 6.45.Wasnt expecting too much but a days just catching up with my son is enough incentive and any fish would be a bonus. The water was like a millpond as we set up on Plucky
Image
About half an hour into the trip and a cracking pull down and decent scrap saw our first cod aboard
Image
Peter had action all day but mainly dab, whiting( surprised how very few larger whiting were about) and flounder
Image
Still on the ebb and another cod for me
Image
Peter continued to be busy
Image
The third cod was boated before the turn of the tide
Image
A wonderful and memorable day.
It was good to see Ian Kell in the lock

Thanks Steve and Graham, you always comment on my reports, want to ask a genuine question here, I have benefitted hugely( I mean hugely) form the advice from members of this site and one thing that I have learnt is that I should always try to put something back and that's why I post a report if I think it could be of interest to others or cause some debate or even prompt some p**s taking. This isn't about showing success or any other selfish/egocentric motive on my part and apart from yourselves, Tatch and Ian K ( sadly not appearing here now) and one or two others of good fishermen standing, there seems to be little appetite for these kinds of reports. As officials of this site what do you reckon and I will take your advice gladly?
Best wishes
Mike

I read 99% of posts on here. Very rarely though do I comment, unless I have something to contribute.

Personally I hate “good catch” posts or similar, as I read 99% of posts, as I said. So when a topic appears that I’ve already read and enjoyed I am disappointed to find “ good catch” , I would rather read another interesting post, such as “I fished there last week and had so and so” or “have you tried this bait there it works for me” or something interesting.

That’s why I don’t comment unless I have something interesting to add - except for this boring post, that is :)

I’ve always thought forums would benefit from a “like” button whereby we can show that we like your posts but doesn’t pop it back onto the forum as having a new post that we have to read to see that it’s just “nice catch” or similar.
I am not a number !

Questions are a burden to others, answers a prison for oneself.

Thanks for that John and can understand your view entirely. My main concern was whether there was sufficient interest in boat reports as I genuinely didn't want to post stuff up that was not of interest to the members, I am certainly not looking for 'likes' just wanted to contribute to this excellent forum. I have my answer and will continue to post until someone tells me otherwise. Best wishes, Mike

Keep posting Mike. I do about 5 trips a year on the boat (first year having said that I haven’t been on the Mersey, and HH marina is a bit of a step back) but always good to read!!

Please do keep the reports coming Mike, it’s always interesting to hear what’s being caught on the charters and small boats. And personally I’m very much an advocate of encouraging posts like “nice catch” and similar as they show an appreciation of the time taken by the poster of the report. Without such the forum would soon dry up due to folk questioning whether there’s an interest in the reports they post.
I look forward to your next report
