Fisherman Jimmy not happy with the season so far

FISHING: Hi once again me fellow Fisheroos. Once more me old shipmates fishing was curtailed by the weather, and on the one trip out towards the end of the month, we had one hit from a Sail which lasted all of three minutes and nothing else.

Great to be out again, but quite disappointing really when you consider the conditions to be good, “overcast, calm and after a storm”, especially after the fantastic season we have had.

I apologise for this month’s article being delayed, but I awaited the outcome of the PGFC’s (Phuket Game Fishing Club) committee meeting, where it was rumoured that exciting, earth-shattering things were about to happen, like the arrival of the Kraken.

The Kraken being a legendary sea monster of huge proportions, sometimes thought to be a giant squid with a psychotic temperament and tentacles everywhere, the scourge of anything maritime.

Well that’s it, as my timbers are well and truly shivered, I have decided to jump ship as I believe she is now well beyond repair and have advised what’s left of the of the PGFC crew of my assessment of the situation. So no more reports on the fishing club from me.

As Thailand’s Premier Sports Fishing Competition, “sponsored by The Phuket News” is now being run independently of the PGFC, I will be in a position to keep everyone advised of what’s happening on that front. For further details please contact Warren Crowe at: thailandclassics2017@gmail.com.

While on the subject of competitions, the P.I.S.T. (Phuket International Sports-fishing Tournament), another “The Phuket News” sponsored event, has just finalised their arrangements for this year’s “rivalry of the reels”.

This three day event will be held from November 23 with the “Early Bird” bookings coming in until the end of September.

Check it out on the internet or contact me for details of available boats etc. for either competition.

Jimmy you are doing such a wonderful job within the amateur fishing business. It is truly a shame that you are not fully appreciated with your honest opinions in regards to the Kraken and the sad state of affairs within the local fishing clubs. That up until now have been well founded and run totally on "transparency"!! Tight Lines Mate.
