Well, at last I got out there! Both Saturday AND Sunday!

Saturday with mate Dave: I didn't like the look of that east wind so went west to try for some Bream and Smoothound off Sowley. We had about a dozen Bream but mostly small with a couple of keepers and surprisingly only one Smoothound about 8lbs. At slack, we went to try Freshwater reef on the flood, but the wind had blown up and as it was going to be wind against tide, we went to Dolphin Bank to try for a Ray and maybe Tope instead. Two Small Eyed Ray and a load of doggies, plus a massive run from a good Tope which let go, was all we got.
Sunday with Allan: Same plan but in reverse. We fished Dolphin Bank on the ebb in the morning to try drifting it. Nothing except one Dog and a surprize Plaice of about 1.5lbs.
Anchored for the rest of the ebb and caught about 5 Tope, all small, one Small Eyed Ray and loads of Dogs. We tried fishing on the top of the bank first then moved to the deeper water on the northern edge drop-off, but it didnĺt seem to make any difference.
When the tide turned we went to Sowley but apart from one Smoothound, it was dead, plus loads of weed to frustrate us.
had the feathers out for most of the time and caught two Mackerel!
So not a brilliant weekend of fishing, but after a lay-off of twelve months, it was great to be out there!

Sounds you had a good time Martyn even if not the most productive...
I was going to try down the west side next time out again.
Hoping it might be ok this next weekend, Sunday all being well.
Make sure you get out again soon!
All the best,
J

We missed the footie yesterday the lure of good weather and calm sea better than watching 22 over paid pretty boys kicking a ball about. we found a few mackerel on the way out although only in ones or twos but enough for bait. 1st stop was bullocks patch a few small bream got pestered by small pout, so we then push off out to a deeper mark and had Tope, Smoothhound and a Spotted ray and the ever present dogfish.
A great days fishing with not many boats about.

Well done Dave. Definitely the right decision!

I was starting to think my forum connection had gone down as there have been no reports during all this good weather. You can't all be decorating, building, gardening like me! I have to rely on you guys to get my fishing fix by proxy.

I was anchored next to you. There was a great display by a Spitfire after you left, doing loops over the forts. A bit of a distance away but the sound was incredible.

Well done guys.
Sounds like you made the most of the weather (well, apart from Johnny, who was busy re-living his youth!)
:-)
