Due to dirty water and the early arival of the algie bloom which has made fishing inside of 20 miles nearly impossible the spring festival has started slowly most boats had to travel out the wall of death which is a peice of ground around 26 miles from whitby to find clear water as the inshore wrecks havent been fishing due to murky water or poor water clarity,the biggest fish upto present is just over 12lb which was caught on trot on ,the last 2 days for me personally have seen some excellent cod fishing of a couple of wrecks on the 20 mile with plenty of cod between 4- 6lb range and ling upto 10lb which we had 2 yesterday also there is the occasional pollock up and around 6lb mark but bigger fish are not pokeing there heads out you find this when the water isnt really clear they just seem to not want to play but we shall see what turns up today the £1000 first prize is still wide open with only a couple days left in the festival which finishes on saturday the skippers are all out to try and catch the big one.

Winner was Whitby Junior angler Dan Craig with A ling of 15 pounds caught on Trot On. I bet the young lads mum was happy when he turned up with £1050 in his back pocket. Although there was nothing real big there was a fair splattering of cod creeping into double figure including this cod from Paul Kilpatrick's boat sea otter 2



Not sure on methods used mate. Paul keeps threatening to come on here with an update but I think he has so many bookings he is at sea most days at the moment.

Cheers - Glenn
