Only problem is that the bait wasn't in the water long enough for the target species - rays - to find it!!!

12" doggie on a whole squid 4/0 4/0 pennel the whole lot down its gob!

2 doggies on on each hook of the pennel rig....

Should have taken the spinning rod and gone for the triple doggie hook up..

use to have fun with a Ron Thompson hardcore spinn 3 hook flapper with mini suid on each hook fishing the "Kennel" at Knab Rock and wait for the triple.. Not quite the same on a Nemesis Plus :(

Did have two interesting bangs which really pulled the rod over though.....Whilst in close but didn't hook anything tried head and guts for a while...

Fished from the ledges on the left hand side since the point proper was full. fished from 8pm til 2am moving down from the ledges when we lost water round the front on the flat rock and then ended up on the beach once we could get across. all the doggy "action" came in the first few hours. Nothing happened for the last 4 hours

Hell of a rip had to "uptide" with the grippers held down with bait elastic for the first few hours which made bite detection almost impossible. Me and my mate probably had at least 10 doggies each in the first hour and a half ranging in size from about 20" to 5" oh aren't they cute little puppies ...... ;)

Sandeel, Squid, Mackerel they will take anything. If you deliberatley went out to target them you should catch loads!!!

The ledges are better than a tackle shop - reels of bait elastic, Baiting needles, Sequins as well as sandeels, squid and mackerel - I dont know why I bothered carrying so much gear out there with me.....

Come on lads - make sure that the bait you don't want makes it back to the water or the ledges will end up semelling like the end of Porthcawl pier!!
