    Once again the forcast was wind for today so the lads had only one option the ankhor down under the cliffs the wrecking job didnt stand a chance today but the lads were keen to get out so we dropped the ankhor.
    Going back a few years ago in the spring festival we had to do the same thing to much wind for wrecking so dropped the ankhor and one lad lost a cod over 20 lb to seal he was gutted to say the least .
    The fishing today wasnt fast but we managed some codling nothing big and most fell to squid and worm but we did get a little surprize a smoothhound, at first i thought it was a spurdog but i soon realized it was smoothhound.

    This got the first cod.

    At least you got out Paul. We get loads of double figure Smoothounds down here in the summer months, over sandy sea beds, with hermit crab being the best bait!. Hope the weather picks up by the weekend, and see you on board Sunday.

    The weather tony is a nightmare at the moment one big low one after the other might get in the eye of the low this weekend so maybe light winds.
