Ballycastle, Rathlin Island and The Pinnacles - Co.Antrim

Postby chuckaroo » Fri Jul 14, 2017 2:42 pm

Enjoyable day out with Davy Frayne on Torra yesterday. Straight onto mackerel, then straight onto spurdog, then good numbers of pollack and ling caught over The Pinnacles.
Would thoroughly recommend Davy, hugely experienced and a solid big boat.

6 or 7 spurdog were landed in no more than 1 hour spent fishing for them.
Biggest pollack was 10.5lb and the biggest ling was 9lb.
No monsters, but a lot of fun.

With the plenty of pollack and the several ling, we also had a 3lb cod, several male and female cuckoo wrasse, ballan wrasse, some decent coley, a few doggies, and a pile of mackerel.
