The lads have had 2 cracking days fishing and a bag full of fillets to take home on each day. John turnballs party on saturday got non stop action out on the 18 mile fishing grounds. The 5 lads who booked the boat for themselves had around 80-90 cod and ling between them. There was nothing massive, with the best fish around the 9lb mark but stacks of them. So a belting day, but it was midway through the afternoon that got everybody on there toes. One of the lads was winding a good sized cod up when 20ft under the boat a very large porbeagle suddenly appeared and attacked the lads fish in a swipe it bit the cod completly in half a fish of around 8lb the lads couldnt believe what they were seeing the shark circled the boat for a few minuites before swimming away he must been 8ft long around 400lb mark a very big fish. The lads yesterday one of my long standing regualar teams had a great day only 4 lads this time chartering the boat they all had top teens of fish so they were well happy those big ones are evading us at the moment a little slow start on the board but i am sure we will be finding something a big bigger very shortly.

My crewman dave inspects the ravaged cod even he he a bit shocked you can see it was a nice fish or it was a nice fish. Still a corking days fishing for the lads and they saw a real shark the lads with just a few of there fish.
