Yesterday me,dad and doyt went to killantringan lighthouse from 5ish (sorry for being late:unsure: )

we took a long walk and within minutes dad was puffing for air.His exuse was the weight of his rucsack was tiring him out (but we know better don't we)

i thought this was a place that was too steep for fishing and that we had been here before which it turned out not to be and infact quite a gentle scramble down the rocks.Dad called me a mountain goat because i scrambled down fast and with ease.:wheelchai <- Dad

To me at the start i din't understand the layout of the mark and was curouis and wanted to explore.:g:
we set up and me and dad went round the side to a gulley and dropped some lug/rag down for some wrasse.Nothing was biting so we moved round and we then set up our tri-pods and got out each two rods.
me checking dads rods

doyt looking hopefully at his rods



no bites until it got dark and the first sea animal caught was a starfish by me


debate followed if it was a fish and would it count on my species list.The grumpy old men said no :schmoll:

finally the first fish was caught by me (on dads rod while he got my rig n line out of a snag) and this one would count no matter what.


then doyt caught a 2.2lb dogfish and dad took a photo of me holding it.It was a fine fish and the biggest doggie doyt had caught in a while.


then doyt caught another doggie which we didn't photo or weigh.

eventually dad finally managed a fish and you guessed it, it was a doggie.

throughout the night we caught doggies only and the final score was


Doyt=7 me=4 dad=1

we packed up around 11:00pm and left taking care on the rocks and on the hill i was so tired i fell to the ground twice.Once we reached the cars we said goodbye for now and drove to home for a shower and sleep:sleeping: .

Ha ha young'ees against the oldies eh, i luv it. Top report and some nice fish.

You taught him well tack 4 , possibly too well. Can only be good for the future generation of anglers.

I only hope my daughters dont show me up as much in the coming years.
then again, it would be nice but slightly annoying. lol. Well done again little tack 4:clap3::clap3:

good report littletack glad to see you went easy on your dad in it but you'll need to let him win now or else learn to use a fork to get your own bait!
still say the starfish doesn't count
anyone who need's a leason on fishing give littletack a shout he kept telling me & his dad when to strike(worked for me haha) rod down & whack it was the call when we had bite's !
but well done to the wee man he was as full o bean's after 6 hr's fishing as when we arrived

Smashing report on a good session, well done all. Just curious, but is the bay showing any sign of recovery ? or is it all boulders now.
