October Flatfish

October sees the interesting change over from summer to winter start. To date temperatures remain high and recent catches of included bream and mackerel mixed with whiting and big pollack on the open ground. While we wait for the temperatures to drop and the cod to arrive there have been a number of specimen flat fish caught:

Graham Hobbs from Poole with a magnificent 7lb plaice. Graham has regularly joined the evening trips on Silver Spray this summer and as practice makes perfect here is again with a 18lb blonde on the same trip...

Not to be outdone Lee Singleton also had an 18lb blonde ray on the same trip. Lee was fishing with a light rod and landing this fish in the strong tide and rough seas was a tremendous feat of angling.

Another blonde. This time Lucy Sly from Oxford with a nice 4lb spotty ray caught near to the Isle of Wight.
