Cracking day out mate.What rig did you catch the turbot with and what bait did you use as I have been trying for them with no success yet?

just a long three hook flowing trace, with a delta spoon about 7 inches above the hook, plenty of beads etc, as for bait, just a sliver from the belly of a mackeral, about four inches long, keep your fingers crossed theres no whiting around!! they can be a pain.
