    Sea Otter 2 reports Here

    Been very busy so just put report up from day 1 of the festival.

    Saturday saw probably one of the best days weather wise at sea this year, with no wind blue skies and flat calm near perfect conditions.

    With the tides small it was now time to head south of Whitby close in. These wrecks only fish on the right conditions.

    Small tides and water clarity has to be right here. A few of these wrecks hold some cracking fish, one in particular is my favourite, which is just over 2 miles from the shore.

    This wreck is a bit special and once agin it didnt let me down, we had some lovelly cod with one lad jim getting four doubles and with personal bests as well for 2 lads.

    A cracking stamp of fish we had no cod under 6lb nothing over 13lb all between 6-13lb we just couldnt nail that stonker but the lads still had a day to remember.

    John gets get a nice cod just into double figures he had 7 of 8 cod between 6lb and 10lb plus all his ling he was well happy.


    But it was this man jim who did the buisness 4 fish over 10lb the best 13lb he got these 3 on the belt .


    Then next drift he got his best this fish which went 13lb dead.


    With only 5 lads chartering the boat my crewman dave had a quick drop and nailed this fish this was 11lb his PB dave has only been working for me for a short time his eyes have been truely opened since working on sea-otter 2


    The lads taking a few snaps the weather is fab.


    Yesterday local lad paul britton get 2 ling over 13lb taking joint 2nd place in the dailys paul was bit unlucky the fish quite skinny normall both these fish would have topped 15lb +.


    The one over 20lb awaits looks like we will sneak tommorow so fingers crossed for the big one ,

    Nice one, Paul. I fished Saturday and Monday, and as you say, conditions were close to perfect on the face of it. I had twelve ling on the Saturday, five of which were into double figures, but alas nothing bigger than 12lb 8oz and not enough for a podium finish. All fantastic sport, much better and consistent fishing than here down south, but once again I'm left wondering what it will take to tempt the 'big croc' - its not like I'm shy when it comes to loading my hooks with big baits!? Anyway, I will try and make it up again in November - winning that darn festival is close to top of my 'ten things to do before I die' list. LoL. All the best, Dunc

    Ive often noted that those big ling only seem to want to play under perfect conditions, often after you cleared out all the smaller fish. Used to fish for them a lot with my mate Chris Dickinson. The bigger fish were always the last to come out.
