Saturday 12th a couple of us tagged along on a trip out wrecking on the Huntress out of Grimsby. Most of those on board were novices. After a hours or so traveling we made the wreck just before slack water. In the next few hours we managed a Pollock of 8lb, a lot of small codling up to a couple of pounds, pouting coming out of ears and about a dozen ling to 7lbs. We then tried about 5 other wrecks working our way back to grimsby adding to our talley of ling. Once back Jim, the skipper suggested we have a couple of hours of uptiding in the river, at the first mark we had a couple of small smutts which made the novices day and at the last mark I had one of the smallest whiting ive ever seen. All in all a very enjoyable day with every one catching and I managed to catch my first Pollock. We did see the Preadetor returning to port later on but im not sure what was caught.

I cant wait till our next trip on the 10th of October, especially as we will be trying for portbeagles on the 9th at Whitby too.

Hi all
I have to give Jim his dues of all the boats ive been out on Ive never known a skipper work so hard to put you over and keep you over the fish, if the fish arent there then off to another wreck. He does really short drifts as soon as your past the wreck then up and off back for another drift, it makes for intense fishing but it does maxamise the time in the right place.
I cant wait till we start fishing the river with him in the winter he's already given me a heads up of what his plans are and they sound like a winner!
