Mixed fishing

We’ve enjoyed some great mixed fishing recently on the spring tides. Drifting around the coast we’ve been rewarded with a good number of ballan and cuckoo wrasse, together with pout, poor cod, pollack, codling, mackerel and scad.  

At anchor, we’ve seen plenty of thornback rays, bull huss, dogfish and whiting. We’ve also been catching grey gurnard, black bream amongst many others. 

A quick nip out to the wrecks on a calm day once again so us hitting the pollack. Choosing a closer wreck than normal to allow for other fishing, it was rewarding to still fill a toolbox in a couple hrs with pollack averaging 6lb.
