Blankin Barry said:Fished Chesil last Friday week (afternoon and evening) managed to catch a decent macky on a bomber rig that had been stripped by spider crabs. The macky went for the bling on the snood. A bloke tried feathering just up from me and managed to get a few. He cracked off on the next cast, so that ended the feathering. They were being caught around Lyme bay in December and January according to one of the locals.
