    Well with my recent row of blanks i thought surely a blank on my birthday would be very bad luck so a late session was planned , i set off with slug about 7 pm our plan was to try saltwick beach / hole sister rock ,and then drop on west pier later for the flood , when we looked over the top i seen the swell was huge , i was wanting to get to sister rock eventually but it was that big i just stayed on in the back of the hole , first few casts were in vein , nearly got very wet at one point , conditions looked perfect for the back of the hole about 4hrs down got 2 bites in concession landed a 2lbr and missed a bite , still the white water over at the sister nab so the alure of the west had got the better of me .

    We stopped off for a pizza to keep us going for a long night ahead . once on the pier seen lobbers he had had 3 one a good 5lb plus , we fished the harbour entrance , the first few hours were very slow , ritchy lobbers mate had had a couple from the end chucking on the sand to the left about 3hrs up on the flood , had my first a fish around 2lb then was quiet for a few casts , then over hw and the start of the ebb managed 4 more 3 over 5lb one 6.5lb we called it a day ( morning ) at 5am scores on the doors i managed 6 mr lobberly had 10 and his mate ritchy had 14 cod most of witch were 5lb plus hell of a doo !!! we all caught on all sorts of combs cart squid peelers , i tryed and tried to get my mate slug a fish as he has just started shore fishing , we tryed all sorts but he had a bit of a mare , will get u a fish next time dave !!!

    Somebody should send the report to the council office and tell them why we need both piers repaired and get fishing and tourists visiting the Whitby town in the future .
    Well done lads :wink: :happy:
