Nice day reefing in Chapmans Pool

Well what makes a nice day's reef fishing when you don't want to steam over the horizon. How about brilliant sunshine, the beautiful Jurrasic coast and 12 species of fish. Mackerel, pollack, launce, undulate rays to 14lb, spotted rays, cuckoo wrasse, ballan wrasse, black bream to 3lb, bull huss, dogfish, squid and a whitebait well Dave caught one in the livebait net....

Mid channel magic

Cod, bass and pollack. Lovely weather. What more could you want???

Cod have arrived

The cod have just started to show on the brittle star ground. As forecast the size is better than last year with outstanding numbers. These cod will return so we are encouraging moderation with smaller fish under 10lb returned.
