Well in my quest to search out new marks and to boldly go where loads of people have gone before, I opted to have a recce round Boulby last night. my intention was to fish boulby gulley. It's amazing how different things look in the dark but it took me ages to find the gully but all the while I hadn't walked far enough. eventually i got to it around low water, and not having knowledge of the area and flooding tide I only gave it half an hour with no success before making my way back. On the way I stopped off and had a few chucks in boiler hole, a few knocks there but nothing substantial. Got back to cowbar in enough time to have a couple of chucks in cowbar gully. chucked out and after 5 mins got a cracking bite, struck into it and fish on. I knew it was a good fish straight away and it took me a good few minutes to get it about 10 yards out from the scar edge when it went solid. gave it some slack and it came out. did this 3 times then just as i was about to bring it up the hook pulled out. Had 1 more cast without success and the tide started pushing me off the scar so headed home. gutted about loosing a good fish but that's several more marks that I now know just a little bit better, cant wait to try again with a little bit more knowledge of them.
