Had a trip out from Marske today and was joined by Chris and Phil from the North West and Nigel and David from Halifax also Mark joined me who lives locally but was keen to land his first Ray I couldn’t promise this but would put him in the right area Nigel was easier to keep happy he wanted a Flounder and knew I could almost guarantee him one of these
Once out on the water we paddled out to one of my marks that has produced Ray for me before and anchored up it was slow going to say the least and as I started to fear that the lads who had travelled were becoming a bit disappointed I was relieved to see Chris lift a nice Thornie aboard so I slipped anchor and paddled over to photograph and weigh it pulling the scales round to 11lb 6oz the pressure was starting to lift now
Unfortunately the rest of the session was to be made up of very small whiting and small flatfish
Mission accomplished for Nigel bagging many Flounders
as the fishing was slow myself Chris and Phil spent a few hours messing in the surf which was great fun today a great day with good friends
Got to test out Chris’s Pro Fisha 575 in the waves wish I had a bigger garage to store one in but might have to invest in a Pro fisha 475 soon!
