New to boat fishing

Hi,

As a family, we have been shore fishing now and then over the past 5 years or so. Recently upgraded to a small boat (Shetland Family Four), so once it is sea-worthy, we have a lot to learn about using this as a fishing platform.

We are based in Ramsgate, so any hints and tips for the local waters would be most welcome.

Cheers,

Patrick

Hi Patrick

welcome to the forum. There are plenty of experts to give you advice on your first boat. 
Muck in, get to know people and ask as many questions as possible. 
No such thing as a stupid question if you don’t know the answers ! 👍🏻

Welcome to Offshore Outlaws Patrick! Good to have you on board.

Fishing with family is always fun - especially from a boat! But do remember, safety first. There's a great book here on angling boats that is free of charge and should help you to get set up safely.

Post up some pics on the "Show us yer boat" thread too. 👍

Welcome Patrick, Shetlands are great little boats that still seem as relevant now as when they first appeared, I think we have a couple more on here. Post some pictures. Jon

Welcome Patrick, be prepared for some stick on here as everyone is fair game, it's all well meant tho.......

Don't know much about Ramsgate other than being mud coloured and a bit salty.... But Shetlands have a good reputation, so enjoy

Thanks for the link - found that book a month or so ago and was very impressed with it. Covers a lot of topics in a very easy to read style
