    launched this afty in pursuit the elusive plaice but all I could manage was a dab, I couldn't but help myself and came back in on the sail so alas no points scored here.

    launched later this evening after the course with Simon, he was determined to try for a fish on the fly -and give him his due he perservered and had a good take but unfortunately didn't land the fish.

    Anyway i drifted over the sand dragging an ounce bomb with a little flasher and a few beads with rag and squid on the hook for this here beatiful.....erm Dover sole :whistle:

    Will load higher res pics tomorrow



    No sails or orange marker pens were used during this operation :cheesy:

    Re: Sole Fishing in Runswick

    Sorry Ken, I don`t think that should be allowed as Dover is no where near the Humber or the Tyne, it`s one of them southern softy places mate :laugh: :laugh:

    Oy ferret features, we soon sussed out the plaice to fish at low water waiting for the flare demo...we were stood on acres of lugworm casts....that was all the clue I needed to see, and the sandbar appearing out in the bay. Put two and two together....but take anohter look at the bait suggested. It worked!

    Shouldn't you be at work?

    I didn't know - he never said anything (tight lipped Ken it is now!).

    He wasn't sure about the ragworm for bait though....and the tipping of squid makes a big difference apparently. The chap shrimping was catching flatties too - he caught one in front of us, only a tiddler about 6oz, but confirmation!

    It is a long way up there though.......lovely spot, but 420 miles for J&H, about 390 for Paul and 200 for me. So I won't be making many forays there.

    Hey, I caught a shrimp :happy:

    Honest Sam( and honest he is!) can verify it, it was in the bottom of my yak, does that count as a score. Do I get extra points for shrimp whispering it in :cool:

    Was very tempted to eat it there and then on the spot as it was 1.30pm and still no lunch break :surprise:. I don't know these ex-forces types, surprised we weren't doing push up or running up and down the hill with yaks for messing up our brace strokes :laugh:

    Simon & Matty, stop arguing because neither of you gave Ken the info he required, sorry Ken I have to spill the beans. Here`s what actually happend, I arrived early Friday afternoon at the Runswick site to find Ken already there with his caravan, we had a drink and then went for a walk down to the bay. We had a pint in the Royal Hotel and then set off back to the site, as we started up the hill, eagle eyed Ken spotted 2 Scuba divers coming out of the carpark in their gear, the trap was opened and Ken was straight off the mark, he shot across the road shouting " HEY mate, have you seen any Plaice in the bay when you`ve been diving". Ken and the divers had a couple of minutes chatting about where the Plaice were, it obviously paid off. Never to mis an oppertunity that Ken but cunningly kept his Divers info under his hat.

    If were`re having any points for Shrimp longdog, I should get points for my Lobster on the float :laugh:. Varification from P N Gwin.

    Well done Ken another first. I wonder how many of those other species you can get your hands on before anyone else. You've inspired me to go in there and have a try myself. Mikes got toothache otherwise we may have gone tonight.

    Ill happily join you on a Thornback hunt so long as it ain't much further than a mile off. My neighbour has told me a couple of marks that were full of Thornback last week. He also said there was plenty of haddock in his net.

    Excellent mate, it was our friend Mart (Smokey) who has given me a Thorney mark in Filey Bay, not too far out. I'm really not doing anything special what-so-ever, just taking great advice from as many different individuals as I can.

    Matty pointed out the sand bar and then Simon comfirmed it as a plaice mark a few moments later. A nice easy safe paddle, hell you could do it on a lilo as long as it wasn't an off-shore wind :cheesy: . Drift over it with a small hook,, 1oz running lead, few beads and one of those little flashy spoony things, Simon mentioned they are a real 'predator', a couple of bits or rag on the hook, a squid tentacle too, again on advice :embarrass:, as you drift (using drogue to slow it down) it slowly works over the sand, you can see your rod tip bouncing over the sand ridges, I used one of Sams 8ft spin rods, braid and a 4000 size reel. Mart mentioned a mark close in under the Brigg in Filey bay, again a nice easy safe mark you could do for a couple of hours after tea.

    Haddock in pots? That must be close in.....excellent, when we going? :cheesy:
