Tiny tides and a fair forecast saw me put down to take an offshore trip, only 5 of us wanted to go; so I decided to stay a little closer to home than originally planned.

7:30am saw us all aboard and heading out through the locks out onto a glassy sea. It didnt take too long to get to the wreck.

Doggies were first to show up but a few nice fish followed. A 20lb Blonde Ray for Les - Picture doesn't show the fishes size as the wings were curving in, basically hugging Les. This may have been due to the ray actively in the process of releasing a purse.



13lb Spur dog for Mal


10lb Bullhuss for John


Along with a few small straps.




The tide changed; wind strengthened, causing a very short steep chop - making it difficult to hold anchor on the other side of the wreck (not normally a problem). After the 5th attempt we moved back in towards the scarweather sands.

We tried outside and on top of the bank but we only had dogs to show (in large numbers) for the next couple of hours fishing.

Was a lovely morning but the afternoon was really cold, windy and along with very frustrating fishing! Definitely a tale of 2 halves!
