With a 5 Bearded Rockling still on Rhyses and my target list, we had a trip to the Arches tonight with Grandad as chauffer as im still off the road.

We arrived about 2 hours before low, and fished on the stones straight in front of the Arches.

All was quiet for the first cast, but I missed a good bite on my second cast and Rhyses rod was pulling a bit but it was probably crab activity registering on his braid.

We followed the tide down, and Rhys was first to catch, about half an hour before low. A small 5 Bearded Rockling.





Terry was next in with one a little bigger.











Finally, I caught one to spare my blushes.







I tried to show as many of the beards as I could in the photos as I know some people have issues finding them!

We missed a bite or two more before we headed home for Stella and medals!

Not the greatest session but target accomplished so Happy Days!

Thanks for the replies.

Thats the beauty of species hunting, you can have a poor session and yet be happy with a tiny fish.

I thought wed have caught a few each to be honest but Rhys was happy enough and we can move on to the next target now.

Thats all 3 Rocklings ticked off for me and i should be back on the road in a couple of weeks after having my car written off so ive got to look on the bright side!

Well done with mission accomplished, there's nothing wrong in the small stuff they seem to make a glum day worth while :)

Great result there. Must be very satisfying to have that level of knowledge about when and where a certain species will turn up. Well done fella :)
