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 a few wrecks we finally hit the fish. Each drift producing fish, plenty into double figures and plenty of double shots too.
The very good – Chloes Lobsgows, probably the best I’ve tasted and I want the recipe. Thanks Chloe enjoyed by everyone afloat today, crusty rolls too
