Well after being up at 6am this morning and ready for leaving at 6.45, getting down to cambourne haveing a nose around the new shop down there looking good guys.
Then a Hearty brekfast at the hotal and doing intro's and finding out where we are off too and so it begins. A cracking bunch of people that i got to meet, the fishing was hard going though thouraghly enjoyable even though is was bloody freezing.
Managed to wangle out 1 pollock on an x layer, first 2 wrasse on x layers and then the final wrasse on a cormoron shimura from **** last week!








All in all a cracking day and enjoyed every minute. Thanks for organizing it guys;-)

Great stuff.

Where would we be without the Wrasse eh ?

There would be an awful load more blanks and to think, they've been under our noses all this time.

I fully advocate barbless too guys as we start to catch more and more. they are very slow growing and deserve to be looked after.

Nice photo's too.

Very nice work Mike :clap: :clap:. Well done on finding the Wrasse. We were hoping to find some, but with no joy. I did manage to land a Bass, but the fishing was far from easy.

Mike, unfortunately we didn't make it as far down as Cambourne.....we stopped off to see Ben and stayed around his patch.
He is lucky to live so close to some amazing grounds, we fished through Saturday while battling the freezing winds, with very little to show for the effort :| However, after a hearty breakfast(FOC :mrgreen:) and a short jaunt down to a place I surfed at years ago.......we discovered this beaut


measuring in at 56cm


Shame we 'missed' the official bumble, but heyho :mrgreen::mrgreen:

Nice to meet you and Andrew today, like i said i dont have that databank of knowledge of this isnt working what should i try now that you obviously have. It is nice to meet pople who are passionate and knowledgable, proof in the pudding that you were pulling numerous fish out. there are worse places to spend a sunday than up to your knees inthe atlantic and the water is definately clearer than in plymouth

lol, was good to meet you too mate, the more you fish the more options you pick up for where and what to aim for. I am checking out a wrasse mark tomorow afternoon all being well mate after the tides change.
Hitting the old haunts to see if the bass have remained after this past couple of really cold days .
