A break in the weather, which has been all over the place the last few days has given us a chance to get out fishing again.
Leaving Brighton marina at 7.30 today we headed East in search of more Pollack.
The early mist cleared to glorious sunshine and with only a moderate swell and a manageable force 4 wind blowing from the South West the scene was set for a nice spring day out at sea and a chance to wet a few lines.
The morning saw the best of the action with the Pollack biting on every drift and some nice fish coming on board.
By early afternoon the crew were proudly showing off their catches.
The largest fish of the day weighing in at 16lb was caught on a rhubarb and custard sidewinder and this proved to be what the Pollack were favouring. It seemed that Jelly Worms were off the menu today.
Peter and Robert were delighted with there fish, which were also a lovely size, and Ben too was proving that he could also catch them. Before long the fish boxes were filling up nicely.
By 2pm the fish went off the feed and things slowed up a little but Ian brought in another Pollack and the Whiting continued to take advantage at every opportunity.
For a crew who were new to wreck fishing it proved to be a successful day, which again saw some lovely fish on board. Well done guys!
We are out again tomorrow on the hunt for bigger and better. Watch this space!
