PSECIES HUNT - 1st Dab and (suprise suprise), 1st whiting

Postby shamoo0804 » Thu Jan 01, 2009 1:21 pm

Sorry Steve, had to post this is a new topic as it appears that the proper hunt page is locked....your probably not out of bed yet :lol: must have been a good night.

Please move it to the right section when you get a chance, thanks

1st dab and 1st whiting, caught on Greystones north beach, between 5am and 7am this morning. Perfect way to ward off the impending hangover - freezing cold, sea spray etc.

Sorry for the poor quality pics, used my phone which doesnt have a flash.

2 pics of each fish.

Caught plenty more whiting, was suprised I couldnt get a rockling, coalie or flounder though, but maybe thats just cause to get out again later today :D

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL

mann, its not really the right place, but stevecrow has the proper thread locked at the moment. I guess he did that to stop people posting too early.

He'll be outta bed soon I'm sure so can unluck the appropriate thread and with a bit of luck he'll move this to the right one then :D

You set the bar high last year eric, gotta get some points in early I reckon.

I be back out in an hour hoping for a few more species, I want 5 by the end of the day, just need to decide where is going to give me my best chance :?

Would that little rockpool near you be worth a shot for some mini-species?

its worth a shot, i'd say the end of the west pier dun laoghaire, youl catch just about anything, mostly small fair but a good chance of poor cod, coalies, pouting,codling and mini's down the wall, go forth!!

welcome to a new competition.. people follow the rules please....... pics HAVE to be attached in the same post...





Post a pic of your fish with where,when and how you caught it and any other details you like.
Fish must be identifiable.
A part of the shore must be identifiable in the picture i.e. waterline beach etc, etc.
other wise the fish will not count
Do not post saying pic to follow- i will delete the post.

Ah, I see you dragged yourself outta bed to unlock the correct post then steve.

Oh, and thanks for not shifting my catch report to the correct thread :evil:

Good job nobodyelse beat me to the punch :wink:

Goodluck everybody, as you say mann, its a good excuse (if we needed one) to get out a bit more, and it will be fun to target stuff you'd not usually go after

Dab and whiting caught on a 3 hook clipped down rig - the 1st bite was registered @ 5:19.47am, I left it for a short while to ensure the fish was hooked, then noticed a 2nd bite @ 5:21.14am, reeled in and beached the (double) catch at 5:22.01am.

Is that precise enough for you :wink:

Should I continue with my catches on my later session.....
