: Sunday 8th saw our crew gathered on the pier at Crosshaven, almost in disbelief at the weather conditions. Booking a charter at this time of year is hit and miss, but this time it was a hit. Having this opportunity, we headed out of the harbour and went South West to some fairly clean ground and went about drifting, however we were in slack tide and no wind so we weren't drifting at all. No fish were showing and all we were getting were light plucks at our bait so we moved off towards the Ling Rocks. Before we went to the peaks we had one more drift which brought a few Pollock and whiting but very slow fishing. we drifted the rocks and still it was hard work to tempt anything to take. moving off again we drifted two wrecks, the second one had a desire to decorate its superstructure with our rigs. And I was accused of conspiracy to deplete the tackle boxes of our crew, in a bid to get them shopping in our shop.
By this time the tide was strong and going to anchor was the only option, so we went to the Smiths and tried two location, but as everywhere else, it was slow going
we managed about 20 Pollock and the same amount of whiting, some were decent enough, some coalies, wrasse and a ling. Hanky from Fermoy had a lovely double figure coal-fish.
I realy must praise Alan Kennedy, our skipper, nothing was too much trouble, he tried for us all day and was very reasonable on price
