Well done on the pb wrasse pinkfoot, I bet it fought well. If you like catching those it might be worth a holiday upto North Wales around Holyhead/ Treaddur bay to lauch your yak. The place is full of them. Good sport drifting over rocky reefs just tapping the bottom with ragworm.

Isnt that a fairly unusual species for that area?
Hi gf
That's my fifth Norfolk ballan and I've caught them over 3 different marks but I would say they are not as common as in other areas, the reason is lack of suitable habitat. They're confind to wrecks and the really rough flinty ground around here. Another reason is they tend to share these spots with huge numbers of pout which get the bait a lot quicker, usually in about 3 seconds.

That's an absolute clonker for these parts PF, cracking going. Much else showing up there? I notice Spiny had a cheeky little session the other day.
cheers m8,

There's thousands of pout on the wrecks but the cod seem to have thinned out just lately, or at least on the ones I fish. I guess most anglers are hoping for some autumn bass.
