Rob got this fish first on the boat but there was better surprize for rob late in the day. Then those really nice fish started to come aboard these two a really good stamp of fish. Paul from darlo get this cod just under 7lb which got 2nd in the dailys on first day. Paul really got going for the biggist bag some cracking fish . The other lads were wacking tham aboard hardly anything under 3lb .. Then john gets this ling which is leading the any other species. Then rob gets his 8lber which took the daily prize and set the pace . John was banging them out and did well with his 25lb bag he lost a couple of nice half way in which could have made all the difference.
