First sea fishing trip of the year produced
this lovely female
At 11lb it was just 2oz
short of my personal best
Thorny and sea caught fish.
I had a good pull on the rod
then a drop back and slack line.
It fought hard swimming with and against
I caught it on whole squid to a 3/0
pennel pulley rig.
Also caught was a codling of around 3/4lb
on the first cast with crab as bait.
Calm and sunny but chilly breeze.
High tide was at 10.10 and 12.2mtrs.
I fished from 08.30 till 11.15.
