Another awesome trip down on the flatties. The aweful weather brought out just the better fish all the brill being over 4lb and some good sized turbot too. The plaice fishing was cut short at the end of the day by increasing winds but a good day all round none the less.

quantity and quality

We managed to squeeze one more flatfish trip in beofre the bad weather set in. Conditions were certainly less than favourable by the end of the day (plaice fishing in 8 foot seas) but we managed equal numbers of turbot brill and plaice with 8 of each. First fish aboard was a nice surprise in the form of a 3.75lb tub gurnard for Bob O'Connell. John Knight was top angler with 5 flats incluyding a 7lb brill and a 11.5lb turbot. Still a few spaces left on our last trip down to the banks in just over a weeks time!

3 days basssing

Three days on a nice spring tide with better weather than i think i have ever seen at this time of year before and thankfully the bass have stayed on a little later this year. Plenty of nice bass on live eels, mackerel and lures combined with rays smoothound pollack and more tope than i could count at anchor. What a magic weekends fishing!!
