First Cherbourg

First Cherbourg trip of the year completed. Nice weather and a top group of lads certainly makes the multi day trips easier even before you start fishing. It was nice to see all the lads getting stuck into some good fish over the 3 days with bass ling cod and pollock all making an appearance in varying quantities. The only problem came with the mackerel....we had a grand total of 3 over the trip which was not helpful when it came to fishing over slack water. Still its another 3 weeks until my next one so i expect they will have arrived in more numbers by then.

 A few photos from the this last week, as you can see some stunning weather to go with some good fishing. The first big hit of bream came on friday with a good selection of males and females of all sizes up to about 2lb 8oz. A couple of late spur dogs from slack water on thursday was a bit of a surprise to round off some good sized pollock and a few cod off the wrecks. Another first for this summer was Dave Faulkners bass weighing a respectable 5lb.
