An excellent three days bream fishing over the weekend peeking on sunday with donlad wilson's group catching well over a hundred fish. Largest black bream of the weekend went to Keet with a male of 3lb 14oz. Fishing at anchor on the slack we picked up the first tope of the year and as you can see there plenty of mackerel to keep us occupied in the mean time.

Record breaker!

Breaking the third boat record of the year was high of the agenda but I didn't think it would arrive as soon as this. With a stiff northeast breeze for the majority of the day temperatures were down but this didn't seem to bother the flatties. 7 turbot on the day saw all anglers pleased with Robin smashing the boat record with a whopping 23lber caught on the slack. A second year in a row living above expectations on the shambles!!

This one returned for the future

What a Monster!?!? 23lb for Robin Holloway
