    Micro-skiff

    Post  skansand on Sun Feb 19, 2012 8:19 am

    Some of the best fishing ive done has been from a surfboard... But ive been chased from the water by seals and seen at least 2 GWs in my area... also one big thresher shark i believe...it be nice to catch him! So now i want to build something I can stay dry on but still launch from the beach ..... Take the motor off and its perfect.. http://www.flatsfishingsite.com/the-venganza-micro-skiff-13-skimmer/


    Anyone here do anything similar? or any fishin?

    If it,s flat then I go fishing I fish for Mullet and have been doing so for over twenty years I am a poor surfer but very good at catching Mullet. Also thinking of getting my self a small dinghy,it is mostly for access to the spots I used to fish but are now surrounded by fences and patrolled by security guards. Money talks !
    Did not do so much last year after being nearly arrested by the Police

    Mullet are hard to catch! ive heard use peas/carrots or scrape moss off rocks and wrap around the hook... Bet they can Pull on light line... Weve been searched by Fish and Game when we mat-surf at night.... The officers see our mats as ninja dive-floats and think were poaching lobsters!

    What do you normally fish for ? We get small Sharks over here in the UK which we catch off the beach the more common one is a Smoothound which gets up to 25 lbs good fun. Always fancied fishing for Tarpon one day have you ever caught one ?

    Need a permit with lobster.... I dont even like to pay for my 2 rod stamp! Mostly fish for halibut from the beaches but end up with croaker, perch and the occasional smoothhound or mud marlin(batray) .... This year my high-lights were a legal halibut (22") off a jetty and a nice 14" calico bass off my surfmat...

    Never caught a tarpon but they look like a hell of a fight..... If I get over to the UK someday id like to try for the "man-eating" Welsh catfish... Smile
