Culdaff/Malin 9th June 2013

Postby CiaranMcFish » Mon Jun 10, 2013 12:40 pm

People:Myself + 1

Duration: 7 hours

Tide: 4 hrs ebb 3 hrs flood

Weather: bright sun east wind 3-4

Bait:Rag, Mack, sandeel, squid

Rigs: 1 down 2 hook up, 3 hook down

Results: grey gurnard, codling, launce, mackerel, pollack, coalfish, dab, plaice, spotted ray, spider crab

Report: First trip of the year on the warrior 165 and weather conditons were perfect as we headed off but deteriorated as the day went on. Steamed around for 2 hours looking for mackerel and only getting pollack, coalies, codling, gurnards, and launce for our efforts, had lots of them 2 weeks ago but they have disappeared completely. Headed for the sand and anchored up for a few hours and had some decent dabs and a few small plaice. This spot didn't fish as well as we expected so we upped anchore and steamed to another sandy area a short distance away. Again we picked up dabs and plaice and a few spotted rays but after the first hour things went quite again and with the weather deteriorating we decided to head for home. All in all a good day out and with everything going 100% on boat and engine gives good hope for many more trips this summer. Next trip will be tope fishing on neap tides hopoefully. Photos of a spotted ray and a treble shot of dabs and plaice which made the rod rattle a bit!

It was the mariner 60hp that gave the bother not the ever reliable warrior!! Anyway thats been sorted since beginning of last year and she has started well this year so touch wood there'll be plenty of tope trips weather permitting.
