    The spring fishing was a little slow to get going with constant NE winds and cold nights, but eventually the scoolies began to show up around april amongst the spring run of codling

    Eventually the milder weather came around may time, and the summer fish slowly but surely started to show, if you picked ur tides right and put in the hours the was very rewarding.
    mixed bags of cod, bass, thornbacks and smoothounds where available.
    3lb cod

    1st thorny of the summer at 3lb 8oz

    bass of 4.5lb

    What better way to spend a summers night than on a holderness beach

    All of a sudden in may, we had strong westerly winds for a week solid and it really kicked the fishing into hyperdrive, huge hauls of thornbacks, smoothounds and cod where coming from most beaches.
    Graham jonied me on a few occasions, and sampled how good the fishing can really be when its on form
    one night at hilston me and graham had 22 thornbacks to 8.5lb, 3 cod, 3 bass a pout a doggy and a flounder between us

    a few weeks later we set about getting graham his 1st smoothound, he achieved this on his 1st cast with a 6lb hound
    [​IMG]
    we had a good night on the hounds up to 6.5lb with a few cod mixed in

    Things went very quiet in june, the only 2 notable catches where my Tub gurnard
    [​IMG]
    And a new PB bass of 8lb 13oz for me
    [​IMG]

    Back end of june the hounds hit holderness big time
    one night me and mark had 3 hours hectic sport, landing 13 smoothounds each to just over 9lb and a few bass and cod

    August and sep was fairly quiet with a few thornbacks and a bit of float fishing for mackrel up north and from brid pier which threw up a few surprises in the form of shads
    [​IMG]

    Eventually the cod arrived, in the river at 1st with plenty of cod in the 5-10lb range
