    Not yet, first trip of the year about 6 weeks ago, not had a chance to get out since but hopefully that'll change now as this contract is about at an end

    Looking forward to some time off and abusing my boat for a bit

    We launched from Hartlepool Marina yesterday and spent most of the day between 3 & 6 miles off Huntcliff/Skinnygrove. As you say, the sea was calm tho' it rained most of the afternoon. We had the best day this year by far, about equal quantities of good sized cod and pollock and 3 smallish ling. we finished up with our Icytech icebox full. No sign of mackerel as yet.

    quite a bit being caught off the Tyne cod and ling into double figures, charter boats taking up to 60 fish private boats getting reasonable catches from close in and a few boats have reported their first mackerel

    Anyone else get out?

    last weeks reports,

    tues 23rd, launch from saltburn 7 ish, water clear 120 ft off pier end.

    two long drifts plenty of mops returned, kept 30 better fish, 2 small ling

    returned, back ashore at slack water. hokkis only tried.

    wed 24 th,

    went from marske in own boat, earlier start 5-30 due to 1st trip with raised

    stern & outboard trim to ascertain for best position.

    trim adjusted as we steamed up to huntcliff area.

    as tues, plenty of mops, 21 keepers of better stamp, 1-rod using bait

    mussel/cuttlefish, me using shads. even stevens with returns on these

    methods.

    1st few gannets out, couple diving near pier end, 3 mile mark

    mackerel might be soon inshore. at slack water back in ashore.

    thurs 25th,

    out from marske 6ish,

    bigger tides making so quick run out to pier end,

    11 keepers, two doubles to bait, shads a bit "slower" to-day.

    2-red gurnard returned, very early for them?

    1 double had a big rhub/custard shad in gut, hook had been

    dissolved but plastic non the worse, run on before slack water

    so back ashore.

    msw looks crap for a while yet so cabin fever will soon ensure again.
