Sunday 10th on Kittiwake111 we took some local lads out desperate to do some angling as previous trips had been cancelled due to the crappy weather. Anyhow after heading east conditions were not good, so moved back to the Solent. 1st mark, non stop action with dogs, pout & yting, spotted ray & 3 'lost' cod?! Weather conditions were extreme. We had sun with no wind, rain squalls with wind to 35+ & a hail storm that had over an inch thick of stones covering the cockpit & had everyone cowering under the onslaught! After hosing the ice away we moved towards Gillkicker. Found more action immediately with an undulate ray 14lbs on 1st drop, followed by 2 dozen or so very nice sized yting all around the 3lb mark. 5 thornbacks, dogfish, pout & a 27lb conger finished the day. All in all the lads had a great 'fun' day out albeit in varied conditions & lack of cod!! Great to be out though.
