Second boat comp of the season fishing over low tide and it was an absolute cracker! We went straight to a sandy bank to anchor, and we were onto fish almost straight away! We caught a few smooth hounds, dogfish and the two rays here before pulling anchor and heading to some rough ground to drift for pollack/coalies for an hour, after a long drift with nothing happening we motored up to a different sandy bank, baits in the water for maybe 30 minutes before the hounds came on the feed and after that it was just one after the other
We had 3 rods out between the two of us and it was a struggle to keep them all out at the same time, and we had smoothies constantly tangle the lines together
at one point Ken had a dab on a 3/0 as well
I finished up in 6th place and Ken 11th with another great day on the water!
