    BOOMSTICK Whitby Fishing Forum _ Simply The Best

    After getting a text from mick (hooked by the sea) askin if i fancied a chuck i had to decline as i had loads on but he said he wasnt going untill about 8pm.

    By half 7 i had managed to do most the things i needed to do and since mick had pestered me a bit i eventualy broke like a soggy kit-kat and rang him to say i was going but we fish cowbar gully. I quickly sorted through my bait i had 5 lumps of mouldy cart a bit of old pink squid and a dozen rotten frozen peeler :yes: nice 1 i thought not much bait really need to restock.

    Mick picked me up at 8 and off we went heading for cowbar. Got there and thought we would head round to the boiler hole but half way round we decided it was a bit late and wouldnt have much time fishing so headed back to cowbar gully.

    Got set up and chucked out with a huge cocktail of pink squid rotten peeler and stinking cart. After about 15 min i though i will have a smoke halfway through rolling a cig it happened 'bang bang bang' with both hands busy i couldnt strike sod it probs just a mop any way. Finished rolling lit it and felt a little tap then slack line wound down and felt it nod again struck and fish on.
    All the way in it kept dragging me in to snaggs but gave it a bit slack line and it was out so after a few heart stopping moments i had a nice cod of about 4-5lb sat on the floor next to me


    After a few curse words from mick about being spawny he cast out for his second cast and in true mick fashion he poured him self a bovril as doing so he got a bite but not a positive 1 so he left it then past me his flask and said can you just put that in my bag. So i past him my rod and walked towards the bags when i heard SCOTTTTTTT fish on when i got back mick was stood with his rod in the air trying to wrestle a fish and hold my rod wish id got a pic of the panik in his face. I got my rod off him while he landed his fish another nice cod of about 3lb 8oz. I got a bite but missed it and lost my rig.

    By this time the ebb had finished and the flood had started

    Next cast for us both was slow but mick managed a mop of about a lb and a half again i had a bite and missed it again :hurt:

    Rebaited and chucked out left this bait out for ages this time as bait was low mick was on baiting up when i got a couple of little taps on the rod wound down and held it. Again 'tap tap bang i hit in to it and knew i had a fish on but it was coming in really easy. Oh just another mop i thought. Got it about 30yds away and it finaly woke up and off it went like a steam train i nearly pooped my pants. It stripped a bit line off and went solid F@#K i thought but then i felt it nod again, it wasnt snagged it was just a bloody lump after good old tussel with it i finaly got its head up and just thought to myself no way is that attached to my line i couldnt belive it.

    I shouts over to mick 'iv got a good 1 here' apparently he shouted asking if i needed a hand but in the excitment i didnt hear him haha.

    With its head out the water i knew i couldnt lift it on to the scaur so had to time it with a wave to wash it on when the water settled there it was. A big fat piggy :happy:


    After that i was just buzzing knew it was a pb but not sure how much of a pb it was i was eager to get home and weigh it.

    Had a few more chucks after that all resulted in good bites but just couldnt conect and on the last cast mick lost 1 to a snag.

    So we packed up with 4 fish between us.


    Once back to mine we weighed the bag first and it pulled the scales to just over 22lb
    So that was it we knew my big 1 was a double it was just a case of how far in to doubles it would go.

    Hooked it on to the scales and watched as it pulled them down to 12lb that was it the smile on face said it all.

    All in all had a cracking night micks first trip of the season and i broke my duck this season and finaly caught a fish.

    If i had prepared better we could have had a sack full as had 6 casts in all and a bite on every cast but im happy with what i got.

    Cheers for reading
