Just a short report for yesterdays fishing 3-7-2013.
Some very nice fish being caught now that the mackerel are in and with a bit of luck the fishing should be getting even better. Biggest ling came in at 11lb 8oz and the biggest cod was a nice 11lb 12oz.
Many thanks for a great day with a cracking bunch of lads.

Just a quick report for the bank holiday. Sunday 5th went from mark to mark and wreck to wreck for next to nothing all day until we dropped on to a mark for the last hour. We then got half a dozen cod all around the 3lb mark. Monday 6th
Went straight back to the last mark from yesterday and started catching cod straight away. All still around 3lb then we had a couple around 4lb. After a couple of hours we decided to have a move, looking for something a little bigger but to no avail. We ended moving back to original mark and started catching cod around the same size plus a small pollock and an octopus! Ended up with 14 cod (+ 4 put back in) 1 pollock, 1 octopus, 5 pouting and the obligatory half doz whiting.
Hope to see you all soon

A bigthanks to you both again Barney, not wanting to repeat myself, but everyone from the Quaker house pub had a fantastic day with yourselves, and everyone commented on the work you put in to find the fish. You might need a bigger boat though, cos now everyone in the pub wants a crack! Thanks again, John and the lads from the Quak.
