I was speaking to John (Maggie may) and he said Hokkai's baited with squid were catching yesterday.
Im out on tuesday on Maggie may so hoping for a good day.
Not too many macky about yet either.
Fingers X'd for a good day.
Daylites and hokkais eem to be the working lures up here at the moment. there's been some big numbers taken on daylites from the 5 to 6 mile wrecks, and the mackeral are finally showing inshore as well
just a quick report on the trip out from hartlepool
we set off out at 9am approx to do some rough ground fishing, we headed north towards crimdon and on the drift stopped about three times and caught nothing, then on our 4th stop i caught 2 cod on about 2 pound the other about 3 1/2 pound one of the lads got a cod about a pound and two whiteys were caught, both of my cod were caught on daylites tipped with squid and the other cod was caught on black hokkis, we headed north a bit more but the more north we got the rougher it got so we turned back and headed back to hartlepool . we got back in at about 1.30pm, not long out fishing but still a couple of fish better than a blank
