Went down with Norrie Andy and BMAC - slightly concerned as it was windy and much of it from the south :yucky: - which is the worst direction for the area.
We were out with Ian on On yer Marks and he gave us a smashing day in difficult conditions.
We had some pollack to 6 Lb some lovely ballans and some other bits and pieces eg gurnards , codling ,corkwing wrasse ,doggies :)
Norrie and BMAC had perhaps the best of it - Norrie winning the sweep for the biggest pollack at about 6Lb :clap2:,they had a lot of fish and many about 4 Lb. BMAC on the leadhead and Norrie on the float
I tended to fish closer to the bottom on a flowing trace and had a lot of wrasse - mostly very red as if they were in the kelp. I didnt get all that many pollack - funnily enough Norrie mentioned this a couple of times :schmoll:
We tried for tope briefly - but got the mother of all tangles as the boat was birling in the strong winds and swell !!! :unsure:
Big Haddie ,Guy , and Snatcher all came to see us which was superb (was that Conger Conger ?? if it was m8 - I am really sorry - I didnt realise )
Nice to meet you Lewis - sorry we didnt have time for a chat !!!
A great day in smashing company with a really good skipper who knows his stuff inside out - back in a fortnight when I expect to win the biggest fish and the species hunt :)
Oh and appologies to Christine for the incident on the beach :unsure:
Peter :)

Nice report mate, as you've probably read in my report we had a day much the same (other than that one big double) didn't have any ballans either as we had no rag but still managed cuckoo's on small mackie strips :fish:

Big Haddie ,Guy , and Snatcher all came to see us which was superb (was that Conger Conger ?? if it was m8 - I am really sorry - I didnt realise )
Snatcher and Big Haddie, were you in the car with Guy and CongerConger? If so I apologise for not saying hello, couldn't really see the guys in the back of the car so I'm sorry I didn't say anything! Not great weather for those silver bars snatcher, how did you get on this weekend? :)

Hi Les

Sorry to see you wimped out on Sunday. What a day. Rain never stopped all day and crap fishing.

Spike had a couple on that decided they had had enough by 11 O'clock. My crew laughed at the time but i recon they made the right choice.

I went toping on Friday near the yellow bouy out of Ardwell with my dad in our small Sea Hog. Plenty of dubby down, but could not get through the vast shoals of doggies. I was even getting them on very large macky fillet baits after taking about 25-30 doggies after 2h30mins we decied to come back in. Incidently caught plenty of mackerel and small pollack drifting with daylights close in, and even caught macky under the boat while anchored up. The bass fishing on Saturday made up for it though, my dad had 5 fish between 5lb and 1lb8oz and i had 3 fish between 2lb and 3lb. We kept two fish each returning the two smallest fish to grow a bit more and the larger fish to breed. All fish taken were between 41cm and 47cm and came on 20g Abu Toby Redwolf lures. The wind made it uncomfortable, but there were a few bass there (loads of turns diving) with quite a few fish coming off and plenty of hits on the lures.
