Teelin again

Great day out yesterday with a fair few boats cruising around picking up lots of mackerel. So after picking up enough for bait we headed out to a mark to get doggies, ray and loads of whiting. Then on to a rock mark and picked up pollock, cuckoo wrasse, pouting, cod and a very small but most unexpected monkfish (my first ever) so what a great new species to get to the boat. We tried for smoothhound, tope and the like but no joy, Im sure there has to be some around there so we will try another mark for them next time (hopefully next week).

Ah, the monkfish! I assume you are talking Anglerfish, (Lophius or monkfish in the restaurant) as opposed to the angel shark (Squatina) aka monkfish? Nice fishing, trying to build up a bit of stamina at the moment before I venture out to sea!
