Another competition for us with LSAC, only a few left in the season now, we started off by hitting a rocky area for mackerel for bait, hitting a few coalfish and pollock while we were there. After an hour or so of that we headed to a sandy bottom clean ground spot just off a rocky headland to anchor in the hopes of some ray or bull huss, and we were hounded with the dogfish for hours while Dave managed to catch a tiny gurnard on feathers
With an hour left in the competition we headed back to our favorite mackerel bashing spot to finish the day!
I'll have a video to post shortly!
