Well folks, got talking to my mate and co owner of boat this evening and weather permitting our first outing will be next weekend (11th 12th). So looking forward to getting into some decent fishing. We will probably head out of Ballycastle on the north coast and head over to Rathlin island (5 mile north) and fish over the numourous wrecks and probably start off targeting pollack and collies. One wreck in particular (new to us) is supposed to be full of good size collies, another fellow i know who has his own boat said anytime he fished it his fishfinder screen was black with the large shoals of collies, i hope he is right lol. Hopefully i,ll have some good pics to show on here

Well folks we finally got her launched today. SW 10km/h so suited Ballycastle perfect, north coast. We headed over to Rathlin 5 mile north and wee boat performed perfect. Took us bout 15 minutes because of swell running so we couldnt open her up full. Plenty mackeral about ( took bout 50 for bait and chum) but nothing else about. Shes tied up in marina tonight and tomorrow night so weather permitting we,ll be out tomorrow and saturday.

Have a look at the Fish locker workshop channel on YouTube. Sure he did a video on fish finders & sounders a while back. Away in France otherwise I would have dug you out a link.
