    Had a trip out sat morn ,launched pre-dawn ,

    Quite eerie in dark ,went close inside to new bit of ground we found

    Straight into some smaller Pollock,mackerel, couple of herring on hokkis.

    Snagged up shad so used 2nd rod with daylights, mackerel obvious on them

    Then string of mini billet right in among features on sounder, fgot to take bottom hooked

    One off,resulted in great take & @ 8lb Kelpie taking billet on bottom hook.

    Few more cod to 5lb on drift.

    Ran back up tried 2nd drift,same string of small billet, thought can it happen again?

    Left one on again & big lunging take and another good fight from another Kellie @ 6lb

    Shads returned nothing rest of marks.

    Went this morning,

    Better sample of cod, traditional greenbacks ,solid scrappers,kept ,14, 5/6 lb stamp ,back

    In for ,9 to beat blow up ,turned eastly then round bit nw now.

    Water very clear, blow up gonna ruin it methinks.
