Paul Lorrimore and a party of anglers enjoyed a great days sport on Blue-Fin out of Ilfracombe.
Thanks to Paul for his account of the day.
Initially after seeing the water clarity (which was pretty good) we headed for the Horse-Shoe Rocks for a crack at some Bass action.
We chucked everything at it from Skerries Eels to Live Sand Eels – but only small 2lb to 3lb Bass were coming aboard.
A big change to the last visit from the skipper.
After a good go and more Pollack, small Bass and a chunky Pouting to Andy Smiff ,we anchored up and got the big gear down.
From the get go, the Tope came out to play.
Myself and Troy Laing boating fish of around 35-40lb.
Paul’s tope total for the day was 5.
All on the boat landing good fish, and plenty of them -I think we counted 17.
Species today – Huss, Dogs, Pollack, Pouting, Conger, Smoothhound, Tope, Bass.
