Boat Fishing Trip on FishTickler III

I went out with other members from the KSFF forum on the FishTickler III out of Ramsgate. We were heading for a morning of Plaice drift fishing and then wrecking on the way home. We had nice hot bacon rolls on the way out to the first spot.

We arrived at our picked location and the 7 of us dropped our lines. and we drifted around and during our time a several areas in the same location we pulled up quite a few species. These were:


This was my first Mackerel for the year and so was now at 11 species. We then started to head back in as the fog had come in and the wind picked up. We stopped at our first wreck and drifted over and nothing was pulled up. We went back and drifted again and I had a tug on the line. I pulled up the lures and attached was a Coalfish, my first ever, so species 12 of the year.


After that we did a couple more drifts before it was decided it was getting way to lumpy out there. We had some chilli on the way to our next location which was fully appreciated.

We headed to anchor off of Sandwich Bay in the calmer water in about 20 feet of water to see what else would come up. A few more dogfish came up during our time there.

We headed back in to Ramsgate o end a great day out.

Until the next time

About Chris Ainger

I have been working in IT since 1998 in the Public Housing Sector. I have worked with Citrix since 2003 in the days of Citrix Metaframe XP 1.0 FR2. Since then I have been through the processes of upgrading to Presentation Server 4.0 with a farm of around 150 servers. Since then I have helped create a farm of around 200 servers using XenApp 6.0 on VMware 4.1. This was a great experience which has only increased during the upgrades of the environment for out 2000+ users. All of our clients are the WYSE 10 series using ThinOS which I have helped configure for individual users from a central location making administration very simple. I gained my CCA qualification in XenApp 6.0 in January 2012. I am a big fan of SolarWinds also, which is a great monitoring tool. It is very versatile with a small footprint of resource usage on the targeted devices. I am currently designing the interfaces for the IT department for daily use and also a Service view for the Support Desk Team. I am also a keen fisherman, having restarted again after 20 years. I set myself yearly targets to try to complete which makes this more interesting and belong to several forums of other like-minded folks. I, on occasion, fly fish for trout as a treat once in a while or when the fridge gets empty and also sea fly fish for bass and mullet. My main area is sea fishing from either beach, harbour wall or pier. There are so many species of fish to catch around the UK that you can mix up the locations to try something different.
