With a pain in my neck from watching the TT, Decided to head out for a quick session today, have been wanting to explore some of the deeper rock marks that looked very nice when I passed on the ferry. Headed off not having a clue where I was headed but hoping to find some deepwater rock mark having wrasse and pollock in mind....
After a bit of driving found a mark which looked nice, went for a look and boy the water was deep crystal clear and few kelp beds :-D ....pollock!!!!

After walking up along a trail for a while found exactly what I was looking for,, made my way out onto a small little headland and threw on the xlayer expecting some fish,, I wasnt disappointed and on my 3rd cast landed a nice pollock came in just over 5lb on my scales,, Iv had plenty of good scraps off nice bass but this one I wont forget for a while my rookie was under serious pressure with the long powerful runs of the fish, have often heard of the first run from a pollack and I wasnt disappointed seriously good fun. Anyways landed another small pollock just over a pound before the rain had me off home for a bit of dinner.

Also these guys on the bikes one word LUNATICS!!! This guy in the picture averaged over 130mph today!!

No I haven't. Last year I started catching in May but I'm only just hearing of a few about around here now.
Fishing over the TT fortnight is near impossible for me because of my job.
Port Mooar were you caught your pollack looks very bassy but I've fished there since I was a boy & never heard of a bass there, even on the small beach area.
