Hi,festival trip cancelled due to our fantastic summer weather,so as not to waste the day decided to go to sands end cliffs for the first trip of the year. And as it happens, even though the gear was sorted and serviced + tackle in place id still managed to find the spigot on the rod not going in as far as i would of liked and some of my rigs still in my uptiding gear. so lesson number 1 learnt.Im glad it was found out on a sunny day and not after long trek down a cliff on a cold dark winters night. Its at this point id like to report stacks of fish but not the case just crabs stripping the hooks in seconds,so day one over. SATURDAY, came across with Karl to our boat to carry out a few jobs but the weather had improved enough to fish in the afternoon jobs done and off at 2.30.We headed up to Runni and fish marked on all our spots so we felt pretty confident but as we all know fish marking dont equal fish in boat and today that was the case. the problem we think was the colour in the water and also the speed of the drift.Karl fsihed allday on baited feathers and small hokias and i stuck to small blue sand eels and various shads. ,result a hammering from Karl who caught all the fish 3 codling 1 gurnard loads mackies,coalies and whiting,with the amount of fish marking somebody is gonna have a cracker of a day when the weather settles and the water clears,hopefully it could be us. BUT The question is are we getting a new charter boat in the shape of that stunning . looking kat?Is it a new skipper or an existing one,or are we in the prescense of a euro lottery winner whos bought himself a large sports fisher for the odd trip out.either way its cracking vessel. Not much of a report but thanks for reading and hope your fishing good Dave Crawford PS is Dan the Pollock the most photographed lad on the foroum?
