"At last!"
The four of us exclaimed as we 
met up at the dock side at 
We were just about to board the
My youngest son Andrew
traveled down with me,
While Jason and his young Lady
had a shorter journey.
We steamed out at 08.00
about an hour we arrived at our first spot
and the baits lowered.
This was a bit of rough gound mark.
From the off Dogies
were on the baits.
Jason had a Conger
of 15lb plus. The odd Bullhuss and
Pouting were also caught.
 An hour and a half later
we steamed to our second
grounds for a while of drifting.
This was over sandy banks 
with the shallow banks 
throwing up some rougher waters.
This was not very fruitful,
with only one small Turbot
and a Dogie taking the baits.
A well pleased Andrew
