HI ALL BRAVED THE WIND YESTERDAY DOWN THE KNAPP AND I MUST SAY NOT BAD FOR A CHANGE! GOT DOWN THERE ABOUT 1730 AND STRAIGHT AWAY THE TIP WAS BANGING ABOUT CULPRITS WERE THE DOGGIES NICE SIZE TOO. BAITS WERE BEING STRIPPED IN ABOUT 5MINS,WHICH WAS A PAIN,BUT ALEAST I WAS OUT THERE. BAIT USED WERE SQUID/SANDELL WRAPS ON 2/0 PENNEL.DROPPED ABOUT 5 FISH ON THE TROTT,SO ON WENT 3/0 HOOKS WHICH SEEMED TO SORT THINGS OUT. JUST AFTER HIGH WATER WHOLE SQUID WAS LASHED ON AND I WENT FOR THE BIG ONE,LAUNCHED IT OUT BEING TOWED BY A 7oz LEAD BECAUSE OF THE WIND,IT WAS OUT NO LONGER THAN 5MINS WENT THE TIP NODDED TWICE AND THE LINE WENT SLACK (COD I THOUGHT) BRINGING IT IN IT FELT GOOD,THEN GOT STUCK ON THE PEBBLES 5YARDS OUT,AFTER 5MINS OF TRYING TO GET IT OUT,IT DID A RAY OF ABOUT 5lb WAS MINE!! "SMALLEYED "I THOUGHT PICKING IT UP , NO THRNBACK MY HANDS LET ME KNOW THAT!!!! THINGS WE DO WHEN WE GET EXCITED???

Good sesh there m8, I'm determined to catch my 1st ray this year despite fishing for about 38 yrs. I have always fished mainly up- channel so I intend to get down the Knap and further afield this summer. Respect for you fishing in those gales.
