Rendezvous Baltimore at Midday with perfect weather. John brought with him his you son Luke who aged 10, has never been boat fishing before. After being bombarded by questions we stopped for a few minutes at the harbour mouth to take a few Macks for bait and for once they were very accommodating. It took about 10 minutes to get 20 or so and to get Luke used to the feel of fish on. After several delighted exclamations of "this is awesome" we steamed out to a drift about 5 miles away. There was little or no wind and it was high slack so the drift was much too slow to cover any ground. However when the ebb came through, the wind also picked up a little against the tide and we started to move and rock and roll a little, still very little action so we decided to move again and accompanied by dolphins all the way steamed to an inshore reef in search of some Pollack and maybe a bonus Cod or two. Third drift and a huge yell of help, we turned round to see Lukes rod bent and the little feller hanging on for grim death, first thought was snag, but judging by the rod tip, obviously not! After screaming reels and about 10 minutes of hauling the fish up through 30 metres, I netted a fine Pollack for the delighted young man. The fish continued to oblige and John joined in the action by foul hooking a massive Mackerel in the dorsal fin. The Cod however remained elusive, even though I have it on good authority that there were a few around a couple of days earlier. At 16:30 we decide to head for home with the master angler closely supervised at the helm. A good day! :D :
