The crew today had requested a wreck fishing trip. Although it was not an ideal tide we headed out in search of some prime summer Cod. The crew had been briefed before hand as to the types of lure that were working the best and they set about getting rigged up as we traveled.
Unfortunately this morning was the first day for a while that the sun was not shining and as we arrived at the first wreck the tide was just thinking about getting going so the first drift was set up. It was only a matter of a few seconds before we heard the first shout of “Fish On” of the day.
The angler responsible for catching the first fish of the day has asked to remain anonymous but I can tell you that the Cod weighed in at over 10lbs, which got us off to a nice start. The same drift also produced this small Pollack and a smaller Cod.
More good sized Cod were caught throughout the day in including this one which came in after being towed for half a mile due to the angler thinking he was well and truly stuck on the wreck and having 300 metres of line out.
Its not surprising it took a while to play in when you consider that this is how it was hooked.
Here are a few more pictures from today.
