Pat was back on the water straight away and then the rest of the lads started to turn up. Myself, Pat, Kevin, Stephen and Joe all headed out about 400 metres the wind was ripping through us making life difficult. Pat was first on with a Whiting 2 inches in size :lol: Once again the weather got the better of us and most of us took an extended lunch brake.
The club members started to turn up in good numbers Macker, Alan, Deco John and John were all now there. We all gathered around John G to ask for his expert help and opinion he talked for a good 5 minutes and showed us exactly where to fish and how to fish it. Needless to say we all went in the opposite direction and sure enough the fish were flying in :lol: :lol: :lol:
400 metres out from shore anchor dropped and I was determined to stay out this time. Peeler down as the target was now a smoothound and sure enough I wasnt long waiting

A quick shout over the radio and I was joined by Pat and John. Those lads werent long waiting for the smoothounds either and while we were waiting for the hounds we were kept busy with mackerel, dogfish, with the odd dab and whiting for good measure.

The lads in closer were kept busy with Alan taken the first bass of the day around 7lb and macker hitting another big bass but failed to land it :x As the sun dropped so did the temperature and we were off the water for 9pm. A lovely curry was prepared by Pat and then to the pub where we drank good beer, swapped stories and watched the ladies compete in the darts competition. One particular lady had a beautiful throw :shock: 8-)
The plan was at that particular stage was to get up at 4am and hit the bass, shame I didnt get to bed till after 4 :oops: :oops: :oops: I woke up with such a miserable hang over that I didnt venture out :cry: :cry: Lesson learned for the next time. The lads will fill you in on the parts I missed
I do believe I seen a picture of Pat with a bass in his hand :D :D and the rumour of a tope take :shock:
It was an absolute please to fish with you lads, the banter and hospitality was great. I look forward to the next meet.
While I was busy landing the hound Mr Harrington was busy trying to nick my divers reel and then he got jealous of John g's motor and tried to sabotage that not to mention catching his own prop :shock: :lol:
