Microblogging Made Easy

Many SpaceNode owners feel guilty that they don't update their website often enough, thinking it's some kind of major task to add a new article, or that the world has to end for something to be of great enough merit to write an article about.

With Microblogging, you can add bits of interesting news really quickly and all the time, as and when, straight from your desktop. It's easy, fun, good for your site and here's how to do it - in 4 easy clicks!

Panther In The Movies :-)

The Panther is going to have her big screen debut in the forthcoming movie "St George's Day," starring as a smuggler's boat. Steve Kent reports, "Was on the Eastbourne Charter Fishing boat last night watching the St George's Day film being shot at the harbour. 20+ cast and crew on a small pontoon is a sight to behold."

St George's Day is directed by Frank Harper and also stars Nick Moran, Charles Dance and Dexter Fletcher. The crew of the Panther is eagerly awaiting the premiere!

Blocks Page Redesign

SpaceNode Blocks are one of the key features for making your SpaceNode unique, clever and feature packed. Because many of us are using them in different areas of our sites, the block listing was getting a little 'over grown'. To address this, we've now redesigned the admin panel to make the blocks much easier to work with...

String Of Cod Successes Continues ...

We are still getting good cod fishing as the spring run of cod continues.

Today we had nearly 40 cod with one good Polish Angler capturing at least 10 up to 6 pounds each. We are still getting a few plaice and a good haul of makerel.

Cod Fishing Bonanza

The run of spring cod has been unprecedented with 28 on and 41 yesterday.

The biggest went to 7lb but gave fantastic sport on light tackle, shallow water and calm seas. Lets hope it continues. We also had makerel and plaice to 2 3/4 pound.

Panther Refurbishment Complete

The boat is now ready for the summer season having been completely refurbished during the last 6 weeks. We have also bouight new rods and reels and have managed to keep our prices the same as 2009/10. The water has warmed up and last week we went out and caught some nice pollock and cod. Also the plaice are now in although still not large yet. Weekends are going rapidly so please book early to avoid disappointment!

Christmas Fishing

The weather has at last broken and we went out last four days on the trot.

Each day we had cod but they wern’t very big the best going to only 11lb and the majority being about 5lb.

The channel whiting however have got bigger up to 3lb but we are not seeing the quantity caught compare with last year.

Late Summer Fishing

Lots of cod conger and plaice and the sight almost Carribean with 40 or so dolphins gamboling in clear blue water seemed to make this job very worthwile indeed.

I personally caught several plaice the best of which went 6 1/3 pounds the best this year and the cod and conger seemed prolific.

Good Catch Of Conger & Cod for the Manston Crew

My usual mark produced a good catch of cod and 5 congers last sat. The best cod was 14lb and the best conger about 40lb. We also had a nice ling of 17lb and several gurnards!

Articles Images Dos And Donts 1
