Was fishing the north coast last night in my kayak.Minding my own business catching wrasse and a bass by "mistake".With the big tides the rip was massive off the head land.Looked up and about 50m out in super strong rip :shock: a fish jump 4 times out the water.Weirdly , if you changed the setting and turned it into a salmon run with a few bolders it would of looked perfect.Now I'VE never seen a live salmon but I'll bet my bottom dollar thats what it was.

Could it be???

Incedently,saw a sun fish there last year while catching bream.

We do get salmon as well. Some of the spear guys have seen them and netters have had them also, so salmon or sea trout for sure! I've not seen a sunfish yet, but really hope to.

Yes you could be right in saying "sea trout" caught alot of trout but never a sea trout in the flesh.

However,this fish was well into double figures???

Yeah Tony,looked like a salmon to me,had those slow lazy half hearted jumps.But,as the guys say could of been a big sea trout.

Bob , would of loved it to be a tuna,just to see one here but it didn't look like one to be honest.

Cheers for the input

Seen what looked like a large fish circa 10lbs plus most likely a salmon leap as my mate was spinning many years ago, also seen a sunfish going down the same spot. Spoke to local Sage and he said they used to get Salmon in the nets at Plemont.

For sea trout try Anne Port.

If you see any unusual fish could you please report them here: http://www.paulchambers.eu/jersey_marine/

And dolphins, seals and sharks here:

Thanks for those links Nicolas, I have been looking for something like the Societe Jersiaise one for ages. I will be sure to report anything I see in here. There was a huge bull seal in St Aubins bay the other day, about a month back now. Couldn't give you exact date or species though.

I know its different but my m8 was out in his boat on sunday and they seen a dead small dolphin , and he took a pic of it and when looking at the pic later on his pc, it looks like it has a spear in it - he told harbours when he came in and they said they would go look for it.

Thanks for the reports, I had been asked about the dead dolphin, not sure as the picture only shows something blurred under the head of the dolphin. Had a baby washed up in august, and a dead seal floating around then.

Mostly grey seals around here, although common seals do appear occassionaly, most likely ones from Mont St Michel which have been satelite tracked across the Channel. I would also be interested in any distinctive markings and colour patterns for ID purposes, the same goes for dorsal fins on dolphins.

On Paul Chambers site you will see on the database he has tried to name as many rocks as he can, this is a work in progress.

Whilst snorkeling at Les Ecrehous I saw a white bream with a small shoal of schoolies.

Cheers and thanks Nick
