this was our 2 nd trip out after the elusive cod.
a little more blowy and the conditions today oozed cod.
with some fresh blood on the boat spirits were high once again,this was also boosted by the news that Michael webber had netted two cod to nearly 14lb the day before which is always good to hear !.
we managed to get conger eels to the boat within the first 15 minutes and the odd dog. The constant top up of tea and coffee from the ever vigilant skipper ( a knock off from the old block!.)plus bacon and sausage rolls.
Some decent fish came to the boat with Rob Scoines getting the first blonde to the boat of 14 lb
then young Jack Phillips picking up a whiting of 1lb 10 oz
the best fish of the day went to John Shapland with a 19lb 14oz blonde ray
Mark Jones and Mark Jones also got in to the action on the blonde to double figures
and Jamie Steward managed a decent eel at 22lb 6oz
other ray were caught by all, so we at least all had something other than small eels and dogs.
alas there was no cod, again it was not for the lack of trying, even with Michael stretching our 8 hr trip to 9hrs to give us every last glimmer of hope of the capture of the elusive unicorn mud pig !!!!!!!.. we will be back piggy……..
