April 2009 Banks, wrecks and bream

The 2nd half of April and inshore fishing has picked up with some nice bream showing. Banks slowed over the last neaps but still some turbot and even an inshore cod. On the rips some nice pollack on the live eels and the cod start to show. Looks promising for the summer

April Wrecking

Out on the mid channel wrecks the water has cleared and the pollack have arrived in numbers. Live sandeels seem to be really important in achieving excellent catch rates. Good numbers of double figure fish....

A 14lb bull huss caught while congering. 140% of specimen weight.

Easter Banks fishing

The inshore fishing has remained slow probably due to low water temperatures so the bream trips planned for Easter where rescheduled for banks and wrecking. With some good results...
