    The Story

    I Got a text from bowsey yesterday morning to see if i fancied a go with rod so got some bait out and headed for robin hoods bay.

    Got there for half 4 bottom of slipway first cast had a good bite but never came back so reeled in to bait back up at this point lobbers came down and was talking to bowsey so baited up with cart mussel and couple of blacks shook pauls hand and wished him all the best .

    Anyway cast the second bait in the water and stood there having a bit of banter with bowsey and paul then it happened rod lunged forward so reeled down and felt the fish straight away so pulled up into it new it was a decent fish just solid weight so off i went running to bottom of slip winding in all the time got it into the surf were it stopped dead so waited for the next swell to fetch it onto the beach when bowsey ran past and grabbed it for me cheers m8 .

    First thing he said was that's a double so he got scales out 10lb 5oz it went to so first fish of the new year is a double well chuffed followed tide down and ended up with a couple more so all in all a brilliant start to new year fishing tight lines Jape.

    Well done mate thats a lovely start to the new year for you. That area is no stranger to big fish, its thrown a few over the years. Think Copey had his pb out of there, or very near, only a couple of years back.

    Robin Hoods Bay from High Tide and into the ebb can be fantastic or it can be a nightmare depending on the weed situation. Looks like you avoided the weed and found the fish, well done again and happy new year.
