I don't know anyone who can cast 300/400yds ?

And I'd rather use a Bait Boat than row the baits out, especially in the dark !!

So on Big Open Waters I use a Bait Boat.

Far safer.

Time and a place for them, i always take mine but dont always use it. Ive got a Microcat mk3 and its great, had a standard AT one before and the cat is so much better and easier to use.

Tukmonster - yes definately i always plug it in to solar and it trickles power not to full charge but it helps.. dont buy from AT they are a rip off just buy one form maplins and get correct connectors etc..

(For some reason I cant reply or quote to messgaes, im on work comp)

Something to take note, i noticed someone was selling 12v batteries for the microcat, after speaking with AT they advised to only use 2 x 6v batteries on microcats as putting 2 x 12vs will damage the boat..

No problems Tukmonster, ive found these to be the cheapest..

Ive got a AT solar charger that i bought from brentwood angling absolutely years ago, its about the size of a A4 piece of paper maybe a tad bigger and i paid 96.00 for this i know cause its still got the price tag on and for what you can get in maplins i wouldnt touch AT for anything for my boat again including batteries...

A better option than buying if you will only use it for infrequent long sessions such as trips to France is to hire one.

I run a Tackle and Bait boat hire business and its a good option for people as they are so expensive to buy and repair/service.

We rent out the Standard Angling Technic boat and the Viper Icon Mk 3.

Just giving a slightly different thought for you.

I have had the procat for nine years, still working fine also its a lot smaller and lighter then some.
. only problem is the hopper is small.

Angus
we don't hire fish finders as people muck about with them too much. People going to France is our main business.

I have pm'd you as I don't want to offend forum rules in relation to advertising. If you google Carp tackle hire you'll find us.

Kind regards

do you toy boat users have 2 seperate photo albums?
or do you not even bother photographing fish you caught whilst using your toy boats?

And why would that be ?

I certainly would not photograph any Barbel caught whilst using my boat, because I'm fishing for Carp !!

And of course I do not count the Tench and Bream caught whilst Carp fishing at range using a boat.

But if I'm restricted to using a rowing boat at 400yds then yes I do count them and take photo's, then again they are French Carp and don't count anyway.
