Back home for some light tackle SP fishing 30/08/2015

After having 3 weeks on Florida's Gulf Coast battling fast running Sharks, Jacks and Snook it took some motivation to get my kit ready for a local session before the dreaded return to work!
But with an ideal forecast and clear seas I was soon back into the local fish The Pollack are proving elusive this year but the Cod are there in numbers A few pics from the trip Best Cod for me was around 6lb + but both Sam and Mark getting good 8lb + fish aboard

A quick dash out over the scaurs 02/08/2015

I couldn't sleep coming in from my nightshift so checked the forecast it looked perfect so had a quick session using soft plastics and light tackle plus this was my last chance of a session until September so headed out into a glassy sea

On approaching the outer scaurs I noticed a Common seal hauled out so approached it hoping to get some pics I was expecting it to flee but it was very approachable so had a few snaps from the yak then decided to join him on the rocks for a while and some better pics

I left him sunbathing and searched for some fish the Black minnow got hammered today almost every drift producing Cod Pollack Mackerel and a first for me a Pouting
All fish returned today apart from 2 Mackerel for tea awesome to have light tackle sport like this on my doorstep
