    Retired fishermen

    I was just wondering how many fisherman we have who are retired and most times go out by themselves because they may not have anyone to go with them during the week.

    Well thats me.

    Is there any one in the Woody point/ Margate/ Clontarf/ Redcliffe are in a similar situation.

    If anyone interested in making up a list, send me a PM with details and see if we can get together.

    A lot of the times i never went because does get bit boring by urself.

    Anyway lets see what happens

    cheers

    i'm retired but going out on your own does have it's advantages as in if you end up having more to drink night before, you just don't go
    and I prefer not to have to wait till designated times for mate to arrive, if I am up and ready I like to just go and if the fishing is quiet I come home, but with some-one else on board I feel obligated to stay out there hoping to get him a feed
    so I probably do about 50/50, go alone and take some-one out

    with not being out since January due to holiday then op I am looking forward to getting out during the week in the coming months

    cheers

    Yeah I agree Greg , but going on your own does have its advantages...finding a suitable fishing mate is hard...someone that has his/her own gear , bait etc and is reliable and tidy in the boat is scarce...Rob

    Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn. ~Chuck Clark

    Hey guys it is a massive problem that needs addressing, you retire and think your time is your own but it isn't, it is still regulated by others, those that should be able to fish at the drop of a hat are now baby sitters "sorry looking after grand kids Tues, Wed and Thurs", but this is when the weather is best I say 😨😨😨😨😨

    Seems to be a common problem, just spent a couple of days with Moejoes who was struggling to get a crew, had a great time with some really great weather thrown in.

    Not just a problem with the retired. Extends to all types / ages.
    Everyone wants to come but when it comes to crunch time they are all going to weddings, birthdays or have something else on
    Was good to have you onboard Dignity.
    You pull you weight that's for sure.
