Still stuck on shore but had a great day today. We travelled to Porto Moniz again today ,an hours drive on some of the most awsome roads in the world, with a view to die for around nearly every bend, and believe me there are LOTS of bends. I fished around the harbour with lures,bread and big prawns. Very first cast with a deep diving ,blue /black rapala i had a weaver of about 1.5lbs, then another and so on. These little evil ba*tards dont like bieng caught or unhooked,gently,gently etc. I then switched to bottom fishing into about 60 plus feet of water and pulled out 2 nice trigger fish around 3lbs. Great,switched to the float,feeding in mashed groundbait of prawn and bread. Started with some small bream . However i could clearly see bigger fish take interest only to turn away so i ditched the float /1/2oz lead and left just a swivel with about 5 feet of line to the size 2 hook /baited with a chunk of prawn. Flicked this out with a handful of groundbait and WHAM. This system worked brilliantly,with a slow naturally sinking bait. I had 3 different types of bream ,to 3lbs and great fighters too on light spinning gear. I also had a couple of GG,s and back on the lures i had some big fish follow but annoyingly turn away at the last minute, i would say wahoo or blue fish of around 6lbs. The wind and swell are still here so as for getting out on the boat,who knows, personally i don,t care with sport like that from the shore in 30 degrees and bright sunshine. Beer time now.
