    I also caught a couple of Shannies and a Five Bearded Rockling but on downloading photos I find that the pics are so overexposed that nothing can be seen.
    Several rude words have been said but they are still unreadable, it's a good job that they were not rare species. Will have to catch some more next time.

    Events conspired against me to get 50 this year; I've been standing next to people who have caught herring, shad, undulate ray and huss. I didn't get around to going to Kent, as intended, where a dab would be a certainty and did not claim a starry smoothhound as a separate species as others have.
    If I chose to do 'combined' I would have added two more as I've had Rock Cook and Cuckoo Wrasse from a boat.
    In other years I've had butterfish, triggers, john dory, red gurnard, couches bream, launce and a few others....members here have pointed me to eeelpout and smelt locations, I've caught them before too up in Lincolnshire a long time ago.
    Perhaps I should go for 60.
    After all, I don't have to concern myself with concrete or other work and can go fishing whenever I fancy ...as long as I can afford the fuel for 100 mile round trips.

    You can't fail to catch a dab at halfpenny pier at Harwich, or the beach at Aldeburgh at the minute.
