Thinking of a conger session on the Island, but winds looking pretty severe from south (45 mph!)

Yes you should do, but winds of that speed will still probably cause a swell on the North.

If the weathers too sheite for fishing, cheers yourself up by treating yourself to a new piece of kit. New reel on the way for me :smile:

If I had the choice I'd go Friday.. likelihood of sunshine and minimum wind is seemingly there with weather reports.

I am on a boat trip Saturday which has small showers but cracks of sunshine throughout the day with and increasing wind towards the night, supposedly right off Sunday plus next week :thumbsup:

If I could be bothered I'd get one of those snazzy tents that make it a lot more bearable. I have a carp bivvy that I barely use and am tempted to bring that out for a Perch rock sesh when the rays start to show. Given extra time to setup it could be a nice activity to get the bells on and nod off for a snooze :lol:

You will be wasting your time with a bivvy at Perch Rock.It will end up 100yards from where you're fishing or you will have to move and reset it constantly.I have fished Perch for over 30 years and have never seen a bivvy or brolly.If you walk the big matches at otterspool 90% of anglers have bivvies set up.

What - even more rods 'n' reels?

I'm gonna need a bigger tackle box! :lol:

Right - mountain biking Wednesday, might try the river Thursday but the amount of fresh water might be an issue (i have 100 frozen worm and 30 crab left), Island Friday weather permitting

I might even try Pensarn

Fair play Steve, will consider it for otters where the wind has no mercy :lol:

@Patriot rivers so bad at the moment. I might get on my mtb soon as it's a good laugh :D
