Managed a run off last Friday with a mixed group of lads.
After the recent "Beast from the East" weather which lasted over a week we figured that the colour of the water was probably going to be poor. We had a couple of drops on the 9 mile to start, just to see if things were any good but sadly they weren't!! After several more drops there for nothing we decided to have a run out to try a bit of scrap further off shore to see if it was clearer.
The next drop was on a wreck around 17 miles off and straight away we were on the action. Steady fishing for around 2 hours produced around 50 fish with the best fish being a pollack of 9 lb 7 oz. No big Cod showing at all at the moment. The best Cod on the day going around 5 lbs. Fish were boated on the artificials and the baited rigs too. A nice day weather wise and a nice days sport too.
Rich Horobrov is pictured with a nice Pollack just short of double figures, best fish of the day.
The Spring competition is starting here at Whitby on April 7th and runs for 2 weeks until April 22nd. We still have room in the 1st event of the year here at Whitby. If you fancy your luck give e ring or mail me to make any bookings and as always individuals are very welcome indeed.
