This is a short one as I am in pieces after pulling another all nighter for a couple of species of rockling upto 1lb11oz, lots of small bites on big baits with the tide pulsing all night long. Rob managed the target species in the small hours and what a beautiful looking fish it was, stunning markings. I was actually pretty happy with catching my first lobster, I always seems to just get the legs but I finally landed one, I couldn't keep it of course as like the undulates they are stunning to look at though I noticed I have far better handling skills than Rob as each time he touched it, it had a blue fit. Pete popped down too and had 2 crack offs in two chucks, Rob and I were in hysterics and the laughs continued as we talked the night through until daybreak. Its funny how first light is the most beautiful time of the day with nature all around us, the birds singing and all of that fantastic light, but I am only ever able to see it if i'm still awake from the night before. Despite the lack of target fish it was one to remember, I really enjoyed the social aspect of fishing last night/this morning. :)

@pair of danglers @chichesterpete Word of the session: Nifty (circa 1985)

PS. It's the first time I have seen a mouse carry a whole chocolate cookie bigger than itself.

I bet... I had a good sleep and still felt trashed, woke up with a head like i'd been drinking brandy. The hours just disappeared on us, one moment it was 9pm and the next it was 6am.

That's because working hours are 90mins why they seem to take forever where as sleeping hours are 30 mins why you fall a sleep & then next thing watdaF is that noise ho alarm clock then the pleasure hours are somewhere below a 60 minute hour as don't want you to get to comfy! lol

but great fishing there no hot pot for lobster then?

Really enjoyable session guys even though the fishi never kicked off quite as we thought it might.. God only knows how you got though work today Pete.
The worst of it was that the most important thing I had to do was at 4 in the afternoon. still it was worth it, gonna bring a f---ing Sherpa next time.

Great report shame about the crack offs Pete !!!!!!

Great report and pictures as always. I've always fancied rock fishing but getting a decent fish 40ft+ up and down a cliff has always put me off a bit. I might just have to man up and give it a go this year though

Well done mate

I am in the same, think the skill is nursing the bait back in Rab. Was very happy, but released it.
