Started off the day by getting to our usual rocky outcrop to feather for mackerel/pollock/coalfish. Had absolutely nothing the hour we were there so we motored up to a sandy bank and threw out the anchor. Wasn't long before I had a dogfish on :lol: I had put out a small 2 hook flapper on the 25g spinning rod with little bits of crab in the hopes of a flatfish, but I ended up catching the biggest smooth hound of the day on it, serious sport on light tackle, surprised the rod didn't snap in two :lol: After the bites slowed we headed to another spot to anchor up, we caught nothing there either and poor Ken ended up blanking :lol:
