Report:Ist day out, weather reports looked good, but there was a nagging northeasterly that mad fishing off the hook uncomfortable, with a very fast drift, meaning high tackle loss! so went too wrecks which provided some sport , but again difficult conditions. overal not bad considering the weather, but, not going out again with a n/e wind!!!!
2nd trip, much better, lovely conditions great fishing on the wrecks easy to anchour due to the small tides. Lost a clunking fish on the wreck, certainly felt like a good conger, it bust the split ring on the pirk. drfit fishing poor, no whiting, but again a good few smaller ling they seem to be everywhere!
