Today was an excellent day Pauline Chard opened her boat fishing account! We arrived at the harbour at 8.30am to meet Daniel Hawkinsfor a four hour deep sea trip. It was glorious morning and the sea was flat calm! A little steam round the coast got us to the mark, anchor down and the fishing began. Was not too long before she was into the fish with a couple to add to her species list a couple of nice small eyed rays and a smoothound. (there was obviously a couple of dog fish as well) She did not get a tope – I did and upped my PB by just 2lb. Still standing at 27lb, got some way to go yet to be respectable!!! Pauline enjoyed it though and I am proud of her for doing it – thanks to Dan and Archie for their tuition and encouragement – oh, and obviously some banter!! She really enjoyed it and wants to go again!

Anglers have being enjoying regular sport on Reel Deal landing tope, bull huss and ray.
