Monster hound

Lewis Roberts on his first fishing trip managed to hook into and land this fantastic 25lb 1oz Smoothhound earlier today. The hound, only 1oz short of the welsh record played Lewis well for 20mins before landing in the net. A quick weigh and photographs she was gently released superb fishing.

When fish frustrate

Frustrating day afloat today, started on hounds with a dozen landed, far from the numbers enjoyed recently.  Drifting we managed a mixture of wrasse and pollack, with the odd coalie and codling. The Deeps disappointed, with dogfish all our reward for some great effort.  I blame killer whales! Lol  Still, some nice fish landed and a few laughs along our way More photos in Gallery 231
