Gilkicker Hole again, 23rd Oct.

I had a free afternoon today as our Poole charter was postponed, so after a quick check of weather and tides I headed south to soak some squid for a few hours.

First drop produced a very positive bite whilst I was baiting up the second rod. Winding down into it, the fish felt busy but not at all cod-like. And it wasn't.

Finished baiting up all the rods and so the waiting began...

And I was still waiting a couple of hours later. Nothing else turned up, and my time was running out. Headed back and stopped at the fuel jetty on the way in as my forward tank was showing as 3/4 empty. My wallet is now equally empty...

Still, always good to be on the water, whatever the cost.

Did you take the photo of the bass on macro? 
Oh, well done for emptying your Wallet again! 👍🏻 
Looked nice out there though. 

Yes, I zoomed in to make it look extra-large.

Wallet is now whimpering quietly in a darkened room.

Was a bit rock & roll to begin with but seemed to flatten off by 3.30-ish.

Ouch…

I paid £1.36/l on Friday for fuel in the marina. 
 

Can you not take cans to your boat? It’s a lot cheaper than that

He pays for his fuel through the OOs account so it’s no big deal to him

It's just not practical to use cans. My filler caps are on the port gunnel by the wheelhouse window. To reach them from the cockpit I have to lean out and round the wheelhouse with one arm outstretched. I'd have to balance the cans on the gunnel whilst pouring the fuel.

We passed you coming back from Browndown, wondered how you got on.  

I thought it was you and Ray but couldn't be certain. Would have given you a wave if I'd known if was you. 👋

@Andy135 a jiggle pump is what you need. I have one at home if you wanna give it a try. 

How long would it take to jiggle 100+ litres?? Think I'd rather pay the extra and save the time.

How close can you park to the dry stack? If close a small 12volt pump would take a few minutes, probably quicker than going to the fuel pontoon and waiting for Graham to come out of the office to man the pumps. 
Just check the pump is intrinsically safe.
