Two of us travelled up yesterday am hoping for a ray and perhaps an early wrasse, could only get frozen bait, mackeral, squid, s.eel and lug. Arrived aand started fishing about 2.30. First action lots of small pollack on float fished mack and little shrimp rigs, a few dogs followed, caught a couple of 12oz pollack spinning some hokkais.As evening drew in a few small whiting and a couple of dabs with more dogs. Then last cast, a whole mackeral on a 4/0 pennel. its jhust getting dark and a few small taps, my mate took the strain and described it as like reeling in a shopping trolley, lo and behold a 31/2lb thornback. A great end to a really enjoyable session a few different species and we got what we came for finally packed up at 9pm.
