Minus Four And A New PB For Mistress Rich

    I met up with Rich Cope at Saltwick with 3 hours to go untill low tide. I was unsure if the water would be coloured and if the snow melt would effect the fishing.

    Our first mark was Saltwick Nab. Our first cast resulted in billet bites so it was a quick move round into Saltwick Hole. We fished the rock islands in the back but it was instantly clear there was nowhere near enough swell in there for it to fish.

    So onto our third mark - Cheese Rock. Again we had 1 cast each but the fish just would not play ball for us. There was a nice bit of colour but probably not enough movement. So off we went again, this time to Whitby Scars.

    After watching Rich slide down Saltwick Nab on his ar$e we decided to fish Real Hole. There was a nice bit of swell coming in and the place was thick with colour.

    First cast I had a bite, and I could feel the fish pulling away but I was fast solid. I decided to pull for the break and sadly that was the end of that, and the last action I saw all night.

    We decided to stick it out in Real hole and the decision paid off for Rich. On his second cast in the hole he announced he had a billet bite. Then I noticed he had a slack liner, which is rare for billets, especially in a place like real hole.

    Everytime Rich wound down to his lead the fish slacklined him time and again. So I suggested he hit it. The fish was on and Rich was winding away shouting "This is a better fish". After a few heart stopping moments when the fish went to ground, Rich landed the only fish of the night, and even better, a new personal best of exactly 5lbs.

    I wish I could have got a picture of the lads face, a big smile from ear to ear. It was a poor night for me, but seeing Rich get a nice fish more than made up for the lack of numbers of fish.

    Baits used tonight included Tell Pie, Worm, Cart Mussel and Peeler.
