Hello all, got out on my boat today with my mate from work - managed a whole 5 mackerel on the way out to the eddy - have they disappeared again? But anyway, got to the eddy at roughly low water and fished the south east side with shads, had loads of bites but only managed to hook two - a pollock of about 2lb and my first ever ling of 5.5lb! was incredibly chuffed and a little confused as it took it about half way up! i was expecting a nice pollock form that depth but didnt think Ling would follow the lure up that far - but anyway it did :D

we didnt have a single bite from about half 1 through to half 5 on shads, eddystone eels, jelly worms, squid, tinsel or mackerel, but the ling made the trip worth while for me! And although the breeze got up later it was still a cracking day to be out and about on the water!

Cheers,

Chris

cheers! yeh it was good to add another species to the list - hope to be adding a decent sized wrasse to it next sunday on the breakwater comp.

it was strange with the mackerel, we feathered for about 3 hours in various locations but nothing was showing on the fish finder anywhere - at any depth, but hey thats fishing lol. need to get some soon though - the winter bait stock is VERY low. Good to hear that they are still around though, nice one on filling a few boxes mate.

Cheers

Chris

furthest i have been out is 2 miles past the stone, which was far enough for me on my 16ft thing lol, but then you proved that theres no need to go out that far - you filled boxes up in shore.

perseverance is the key i think, keep trying and the bait will come lol. Are there many sandeels around at the moment? last three trips ive been out i havent been able to get any for bait - are these northerly widns keeping htem too far off shore?
