Sick

We’ve been enjoying some great weather of late and our days are fish filled together with a few laughs freezers are being stocked up. This today we had the average size below par with 5-6lb double shots coming aboard regularly, but eventually we found some bigger fish later on in the day. The new Berkley Sick Flanker once again showing it’s awesome fish catching abilities. More photos in Gallery 269

Weather!

Fun couple days off shore recently. last Tuesday was not for the nervy! A strong Northerly F4-5 that failed to drop off as forecasted left us with an interesting day afloat. Top that with the first few wrecks not producing it was getting difficult! Fortunately the fish switched on with the next couple wrecks and we managed to fill the cool boxes with fish. The following day was a better forecast, a change of plan to suit the weather delivered fish on every wreck bar one. Not the double figure stamp we’re used to, but a good 6-8lb average keeping the […]

Young Gun

More great days afloat recently, quantity down on previous trips but still plenty in the boxes & fillets to head home with. Young Michael Barr showing the adults how to catch using the new PENN Wrath 20/30 rod together with a PENN 25 LD 2 speed. Pollack and codling falling to his lures most drifts ending with a stint of filleting too on the way in. The PENN Wrath Boat rods are available in two weight classes: 20-30lb and 30-50lb. The rods are equipped with K-frame stainless steel guides with titanium oxide inserts for extra durability. More photos in Gallery […]

Fishing Frenzy

Another superb day offshore. Cool boxes over flowing with fish at the end, despite some filleting midway through.   Codling failed us today and we had a slow period on slack water, but besides that it fished brilliantly, plenty of single and double shots of pollack with many well into double figures.

The Good, the Bad, the Ugly …

The bad – 5am sail to get out, catch some fish and beat the F6 early afternoon. The very bad – the fish on the first wrecks were still sleeping, only a few small pollack for our effort! The ugly – 20 miles off, the morse cable on the gear box snapped, couldn’t go forward, couldn’t go astern. The very ugly – The Wookie! Fortunately the cable snapped a few inches from the gear box. A little redneck engineering between Matt and myself had us back in action within 30 mins. Cheers Matthew for your help The good – after […]

The wrecks are rammed … full of fillets

Another cool box filling day offshore recently. Fish every drift on a lovely summers day. The first wreck held a bounty of codling between 3 & 6lb. We moved on after a while in search of bigger fish and the wrecks offered up countless pollack, with plenty of doubles to bend the rods Great fun and superb fishing. More photos in Gallery 265

Plenty of pollack

Early sail on Monday morning to beat the weather front moving in that afternoon.  Setting off in calm conditions it was hard to accept that by early afternoon we would have 20mh winds blowing up the Irish sea. Setting off at 7am, we were thankful that the fish played ball, with pollack on every drift for My Way 2 regular Stephen Hughes and his friends on their first wreck fishing experience. .
