Well i did, but suppose that dont count now Paul, im actually gonna try and find out how boats actually lure fish when their out, except obv for the commercial guys. I reckon we have 500 boat moorings in the main marina here, only takes a note in the marina office. We have some great inshore marks here.

Any experience is good, any interest is welcome!

It was interesting, when we were in Weymouth **** and I didn't see a single boat lure fishing inshore. Now I hear the Portland Race is good, but it was way too lumpy one day we were there for much less than a 25ft boat. Still didn't see anyone near Portland. What are they missing?!

Its pretty well known that I kinda got an issue with boats, but I would love to get some local guys into the lure boat fishing scene, but have a commercial fishing fleet, and the availability of the race fishing grounds, getting them into inshore lure fishing could be a tricky one. I do believe its the sidewinders and large redgills accounting for good fish, thats when they do get out there at the moment of course..

Hi guys, yes I own a boat, well actually one and a half, an open 16' Cornish beach boat with a 15hp o/b on a dry mooring in our harbour and a Boston Whaler Dauntless 18 with a 140 hp o/b complete with 2 livewells on a swinging mooring in Falmouth.
One big problem is they have to come out for winter so i don't get to use them through winter months, the Boston is to big to get up the drive so goes into storage and our 16" is being striped out and tarted up in the garage.
I am very interested in this section of the forum as i have only been into boats for the last year or so.

hi there, have a couple,both small but fine for our needs, have a 13ft orkney spinner which i only got onto the water this summer






only got a little 6 hp evinrude but its fine for pottering around. Also i can launch/retrieve on my own if need be , the intention was to just get out with the family and feather for mackerel on pretty calm days ,then one day everything changed when i noticed a load of gulls and terns diving down in a small area 200yds away, we made our way over to have a look,this was in 12mtrs water and a mile or so off Colwyn Bay where we launch from,there were huge swirls and splashes on the surface and i knew straight away they were bass feeding. Luckily i had thrown a light spinning rod into the boat as well as our boat rods so i quickly put on the only thing i had with me ,a dexter wedge,first cast ...3 seconds ..fish on,next cast straight away another then another,All 3.5 TO 5.5 lb next up was a much bigger fish of around 8lb which eventually came off right along side the boat.It was great fun on such light gear and also they put up a heck of a fight when they are able to use the deep water to dive down.Ended up with 6 landed and 5 lost in about 40 minutes so next year we will be going out actually targetting them with lures.






my other boat is in N.East Finland where my wife is from and we go every summer for three weeks,she chats to her relatives and i go lure fishing for pike,zander,perch and big trout.
a match made in heaven !!!







its an old traditional wooden boat that was used for transporting tar accross the country on the vast lakes. It has a 38 year old 2.3 hp suzzuki on it which is fine for trolling









will be putting plenty of posts up of catches from both boats as well as the shore plugging for bass which i got hooked on right at the end of this season. Cant wait for next year !!!!....... Trev.

This is my baby, she is quick comfortable and can get "shallow" when needed, I work in the U.S. a fair bit and had her built to my spec in Missisippi.
I Fly fish and "plug" from her with light tackle............its great fun! thats one of my boys at the helm, he could catch a fish in a bucket of water on the lawn, jammy sod.
Nothing gives me greater pleasure than seeing friends enjoying themselves catching Bass and gentley slipping them (all) back to fight another day....

I love lure fishing from a boat and I have owned a 14.5 feet Crestliner for a few years now :D :D :D

It has been built almost like an American tournament Bass boat with raised casting decks both at the front and back, and with a bow mounted remote controlled electric trolling motor.

hi i've got a boat, and i'll be out in it tomorrow trying one last time for a pre-christmas bass. was re-inspired today as was shore plugging around st catherines and nearly landed a decent fish, hope i'll have better luck in the gullies. totally willing to go plugging from the boat with anyone who's willing to share knowledge and skills. been plugging for about two years and really lovin it, best of days afloat drifting over the violet banks waiting for that knock from a spikey. :mrgreen:

Hi guys

I run an Orkney coastliner with a 10hp Honda that we've owned for the last 2 seasons. We fish mostly the east of the island and hopefully may catch our first boat bass next year :clap:
