Well What must have been at least 6 weeks since our last trip we took the small window in the weather and
decided to give it a look back out to the wrecks where we had done well in January
After a uneventful trip down and with full bellys after a breakfast in the café at Pevensey we were in the 0830 lock and Ian was pointing us South
The Sea still had signs of the previous days bad weather but a steady run out soon saw us at our first wreck where we
had done well on the previous trip.
After all the talk of bad water colour we did not know what to expect but unfortunately we saw no signs of fishable water inside or at our
first chosen wreck it was obvious the water was worst than 6 weeks ago. 2 or 3 drifts produced just one Pollock so a decision was made to head another
4 or so miles to where we had also caught last trip
water here was better but not great, but it must of been good enough as we were soon into good sized fish from the off
We fished the last hour and a half of the flood. once slack water was upon us we decided to have a look a bit further west
We arrived 5 or so mins after the charter boat Sea leopard and started fishing the start of the ebb. We managed a couple of nice double
figure Pollock. Fishing was not hectic so a decision was made to return to where we done well on the end of the Flood
Again we were straight into fish, a couple of drifts in I landed what I thought would be the best of the day at just over 16lb

a few drifts passed and then Ian stole the glory with a fine fish of a tad over 18lb and a new record on his new boat

Not to be left out Stevie and Steve both had some nice low doubles throughout the day and we landed nearly 30 good sized fish most
of the fish fell to redgills and jelly worms

An interesting entrance to the marina awaited us on a return as we only just managed to scrap into the channel at the bottom of the tide.
A most enjoyable day was had by all and already looking for the next weather window but got a feeling may be 2 or 3 weeks before we see any
clearer water to shout about.
