arrived at boat at about 9.30 expecting to see egg custard playing around with nemo but he wasnt around, he was going to get an invite out with us as a belated bday trip.
the plan was to have a trip out for some conger.
all fuel'd up off we went,passing pedro in the harbour mouth a flat calm sea ahead of us up to 18knt we soon arrived at our chosen mark.
pin down the boat settled perfect,set up 3 conger rigs all baited with flappers.
it wasnt long before we had the first take.

after a short battle the first of the day.

when weighed it was about 27lb well chuffed

the fish kept coming for about 1hour then we lost the tide.
a good few hour's afloat,in total 6 conger weighing between 30lb and20lb.
a few more pics to follow.

You did better than Mrs Pedro and me! All we got were doggies - all types, sizes and colours - and on the beam rigs mackies some quite big! Thanks for checking we were okay - the fuel tank breather caused a vacuum and stalled the engine, twice! Would happen right in the harbour channel

i ve got an awkward week coming up...an urgent blood test on monday,,and docs on tuesday....and a hospital appointment..so can we go the following week..as im on hols..and hopefully will feel better..ive got week wrists at the moment ..low pott levels..so hauling congers might be a bit to much this at the mo..

what rods./will my new 15lb charters do...ive not used them yet..a conger would be an awesome way to christen them
