Weather also looks 'interesting' for weekend!, lol! But I looked at it tonight.... In the Middle of a rather nice Large Thunderstorm.... Place looked great.... Pity I use a 14ft electricity conductor to cast!!!

Fri Jul 02, 2004 2:40 pm

James Nesbitt is correct, well going by the show on telly that he was last in!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Purgatory! its Donaghadee on a wet day.

When K2 X-steam didn't show.

Fishing was also total cr#p, lost a rig every cast.
Orlock is the place to fish, or so I was told by the harbour master, of course by the time I found this out it were time for home.

This proves that the fishing in Co. Down is total rubbish and any lies that me and K2 say, should be ignored.

Any body want cheap fish'en gear, its consistent "zero catch ability"

"Beautiful girl met tonighjt in bar"

as seen at the bottom of a pint/ssssssssssssss glass

and they all turn into dogs.?????????? some times

1. The Harbour Master of Donaghadee Pier.... Is Hardly on Donaghadee Pier! Never mind the end o' it!

2. A trace a Cast!? Holy s*** were ya fishin' towards Millisle!!???

3. Everywhere has bad days!

4. We fished the Dee tonight, Had Loads of Pollack and Coalys! Hell I was hauling them in, in 2s and 3s.... !!!

5. I was VERY Hungover on Sunday morning..... Bokin rings actually... Yes... I met girl Sunday afternoon, and yes.... Dog.

6. I tend to disagree with you, I believe Down is just too underfished, No1 has given it a true chance, most of the place is STILL virgin territory...

7. ORLOCK!??!?! AS IN ORLOCK HEAD.!!?!??! Jaysus, If you're after Mackeral yes... But everything else is too few and Far between.

I never said "The Harbour Master of Donaghadee Pier" I went somewhere else.

The 20+ orther people fishing the pier head caught nowt. I had no orhter choice, but over the back wall.

Don't know which is "towards Millisle!!??? "

I tend to disagree with you, I believe Down is just too underfished, No1 has given it a true chance, most of the place is STILL virgin territory...

Have you never seen the boys netting????????????????? fished miles of the dam stuff myself years ago. Hell it only took us 75weeks to wipe out most fish in south down, evey thing, including ones that I am not naming

Of Course, I think you couldnt go to 1 person on this forum without them having seen someone Netting Close Inshore, or doing something else detrimental to the Inshore Environment.

However In terms of serious angling, I believe that North Down, at least is Unexplored! If you look at the report I have to contributed to on Kierans page, You will see lists of fish which I personally have seen off Marks in my Area, Sure, We may not have the same resources as Cork, Kerry and the Atlantic coasts in General, But we have something that we have to work with.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, I believe you can get an enjoyable days fishing off the Down Coast....

Wed Jul 07, 2004 10:07 pm

K2, don't forget I know a lot of the netters, U should hear them cry:

I done 15 rings today at X place to X place and never seen a fish, I remember the time it took only 3 rings for a good days pay and a drink for the night.

Any way, e-mail me your phone number "land line only" and I will give you a phone call some night. I pay plenty for my free :o phone calls so I might as well make the best of it.

Dave :P 8) :lol:

Wed Jul 07, 2004 10:47 pm

That'll look good.... I get a phonecall from downstairs.... 'Who is it?', I yell, My Da Replys 'Its Dave from the internet!!!'...
I tend never to throw my home Phone number out.... Even my mates only get my mobile Number for fear of them ringing the house at Obscene hours... One time.... My mate couldnt get home, He was in Bangor, Stone Broke and absolutely paraletic... He rings my Mob (Which I now turn off after 11.30...) and is like 'Mate..... Im Facked............. I cant see............ You should have seen the bird I pulled tonight......' Anyway Im Wafflin... God I wish I had free Phonecalls.... I'd be ringing up everyone at Emap publishing trying to get a job!!! It'd be like 'I Dont care, Give me a place in Improve your Course Fishing Magazine, I'll show Bob Nudd how to Sling 6oz of Lead!!!

And While we're on a fishing Forum... I dont suppose you've ever seen/heard of anyone fishing around Warrenpoint, Namely the Narrows near the fort??
