As Scott arrived I had just lost a fish to the kelp on the first cast on a gulp sand worm which was intercepted on the drop , I suspect it was a decent pollack. A good few coal fish were landed after that then it went quiet until after low water.
I found a gully with a narrow patch of sand sourounded by kelp beds that caught my eye so had a go on the incoming tide , and started getting what I thought were wrasse bites and sure enough I eventually hooked up with a nice little ballan , I gave Brian a shout to get the net when he netted him for me. A beautiful wee fish .
Well before you know it I had Scott on my right side and Brian on my my left muscling there way in on my "wrasse hole" , and it didn't take long for Brian to get a nice wrasse .
I then followed it up with another, whilst Brian went in search of his own wrasse hole, where he lost a decent fish .
The last wrasse I had was a real brute, or a "rock donkey" as Scott called it.
|this guys definitely been flossing .|
I was over the moon a new pb for me , don't know the weights but it
Was a nice one. Unfortunately Scott's didn't encounter any of the wrasse a couple of cheeky wee sea scorpions seemed all out to ruin his chances. After that wee retreated to the harbour where Scott got a single flounder Brian a coalfish and a few sea scorpions , but it wasn't on its best form.
The following week Me and Brian went down for more. Another lovely day but this time we fished a falling tide.
Brian was first into a wrasse a nice stamp too!
|what a bruiser!|
|Brian was delighted with this surprise kelpie!|
