Blocks Page Redesign

SpaceNode Blocks are one of the key features for making your SpaceNode unique, clever and feature packed.

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 wernÔÇÖt 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

New spacenode owners sometimes aren't used to conventions on the Internet of what you can and can't do with images.

Every article begs to have an image with it; most people "take" images through a Google image search. That is actually illegal - did you know that?
