    Well here we are into 2016 but let me tell you what a year 2015 was some tremendous catches for boys and girls on Sea-Otter 2 i have a few videos and some excellent shots taken throughout the year i will start with the vodeos the first one was right back in may wrecking with the last one taken early november just before the uptiding festival the lads had days a lot can only dream about .

    This was early may one of my what you can call very long term regualars they know what to expect and on this day they certianly werent disapointed .



    This was going into autumn the shad fishing was just mental the lads had caught enough by 11am then home ward bound for the lads to get all there fish filletted what a days fishing .
    .



    The just a couple of days before the uptiding festival i hit a few wrecks on 3 mile and did they fish but this time full squid baits were just dynomite and the quality of the fish was excellent a couple of short videos one young man getting a nice double .

    more of the same please,

    it was also a special year for smaller craft, marks inside very prolific

    using shads, bait etc. mackerel around until late November helped

    when fishing shads etc, cod stayed interested in bait fish longer.

    unless we get a late really cold spell, will it affect spawning etc,

    I tend to think better returns come in cycles @ every 5 yrs

    but hope current run of decent fish right through the year

    continues next couple of years.

    stocks appear to be back up for the moment for our type

    of fishing so long may it continue.

    nice to see vids of party boat activity, thanks for update.

    2016 looks like being a very good year and the stamp of the fish should be very good indeed .
    It's now looking the weather is on the turn much cooler temperatures are now on the cards a cold winter allways makes way for a very good cod spawn the cold winters we had 3 or 4 years saw an explosion in juvenuile cod and now all those 4 and 5 lbers and bigger about it's all looking very rosy indeed .
