    I took my boat off yesterday. What a glorious day the sea was like a millpond. Ive just got a Navman fish-finder. Im not a fan of fish-finders But I like to see whats on the bottom (the ground).
    I was pleasantly surprised however I had a 1/2lb lead on and 2 muppets above it, I could see the sinker and even the muppets on the bottom on the screen.
    Fish were few and far between mind you. I only caught 1 small whiting and a small pouting all day.
    It was a lovely day managed to test my new equipment and get a Suntan lol
    Not a bad day overall

    Try baiting Acko,not sure about up your way but down here in Filey,the water is no where near clear enough for luring.Not be long before a spring run arrives with the peelers. ::) ;) ;)

    had a look off with my boat today for an hour.tried bait and jiggers to no avail.put a shad on and had a codling within 5 minutes.unhooked it and dropped down again straight into the mouth of a bigger fish but lost it half way up.had to come in as tide was ebbing and had to make it back to the moorings.put 5 lobster pots in as well to see if any about yet.going tomorrow to haul them and do a spot more fishing.boat and engine went fine.was nice to be back out there bobbing about like a cork lol

    I used bait on Wednesday My mate tried jiggers etc But it just seemed like there was nothing there to be honest?
    We tried Saltburn area under Huntcliffe We tried 3 to 4 miles off and everything inside right upto a few hundred yards off.
    Might Pop her back in if we have a nice day and try under the cliffs Boulby side?
    I just been to School and passed my exam Im a VHF qualified operator now.
