    The festival got underway today. Most boats were full of eager anglers when I went down this morning and there was a good bit of craic and banter going on down there. After a quick photo of all the skippers for the local rag the boats set sail at 7.30. By 8.15 Killer was on the phone saying they had cod to 8 pounds and a ling over 10 from the mile and a half wreck. Lets hope there's bigger to come.

    Hope the weather stays fine throughout the festival - the guy on the last pic looks like he's about to start a 12 hour shift down the mine rather than a days fishing :whatever:

    hey glenn super shots of all the boats,
    we had a good day on two dogs plenty of cod up to 10 lb mark (just over 3 boxes )hardly any ling
    i personally had one around 10 lb but john phoned the other skippers to see what was in toe for a prize (just missed out maybe)
    went home to dress my fish after filleting them on the boat steaming back a bit choppy
    had around 25 lb in total only two ling to fillet
    all in all a good day
    well done to the top daily anglers tight lines to you all in the next 2.6 weeks

    Hi Gibbo,

    If you have fish around that size mate you should just fetch them up to be weighed. Its only myself and Dave Perret on the scales and we dont bite and we dont mind weighing peoples fish for them. I think we only weighed about 5 fish yesterday but it was clear from what people were walking past with there was a lot of cod in the 8-10 pound bracket that people thought wouldn't be good enough for a prize. :hungry:.

    There was a fish on sea otter yesterday that might have got into the top 3, but because of radio talk of bigger fish the lad never weighed it. When I saw the gutted fish I think it would easy have been big enough for a placing.

    Festival Sponsor Glenn Stocks with a nice fish off Sea Otter 2 this morning. Im not sur how big it is as Glenn has sent the picture from his phone and when Ive tried to contact Killer on his phone he is out of range.
