Callum and I thought we'd try an afternoon trip in the boat today.

When we arrived at the marina one of my friends was just coming in from a early morning trip out East and explained that he had had a difficult nigh on fruitless trip. So we headed west and tried some known wrasse marks with little reward apart from the odd fish to 2lbs.

Then we move to try a solitary head that is 20ft off bottom in deep water in an otherwise featureless area.

After a surprisingly strong fight Callum brought this to the surface....caught on a Prologic Sandeel.



A beautiful little fish that went back with its pride dented and grunting a little, but it was a beautiful thing, as they say.



Just look at that eye.

PS Sorry for feeling the need to block out the coastline but for the time being its a little fished rock in the middle of nowhere and I'd like to keep it that way for a while.

To be honest Steve the fishing was dire. The inshore stuff was a bit too hairy what with a very powerful, long wavelength swell coming in from the SW (more like Hawaii 50!) but fortune favours the bold and we later tucked into a sheltered bay and pulled out a few cuttles which have a strange affinity for frying pans, garlic butter and parsley. We also came across what I think was a breeding ball of thin lipped mullet and found some more interesting stuff on the sonar but all in all it was "difficult".

Winds and low tides and everything else is making any decent fishing difficult, Si was out today with Marc W and Kevin Pugh and they had a bad time finding somewhere to shelter, they did get some fish though, looking forward to catching up with you in Weymouth this weekend :p

No worries. Two pairs of eyes watching for rocks and buffs are better than one!
