sea scorpions put in an appearance too, there not very cooperative when it comes to having the hook removed, they lock their mouths shut and vibrate in your hand!
only downside on Saturday was when i hooked a real cracker of a Ballan, i had him played out and estimated him to be around the three pound mark, i had to hand line him up the sea wall and you guessed it, we parted company, i was a bit gutted! think i need to look into getting a drop net. Still it was a great fun day with some nice fish landed.
Today i was back for more, again it was slow to get going but i occupied myself fishing for the sand gobys for a while
once the tide was well in i started to get the familiar taps from the wrasse including this little goldsinny
managed a couple of codling today as well, good fun on the light gear
and this, think its a yarrels blennie like the ones Col and Scott caught? another uncooperative fish for unhooking i found out.
a nice ballan
an enjoyable couple of days fishing, don't know how much longer we'll get before the wrasse go off the feed but its great fun whilst it lasts.
