Sat 20th August
Tommy and Kelly had a super day afloat in ‘Lucky Git’, armed with a little inside info from Jim. They headed off to an area west of the Light tower and were soon rewarded with a decent plaice. Kelly on her first fishing trip took some time to find her sea legs but after a few more nice plaice, the sun came out, the sea went flat calm and she recovered to enjoy the experience. Amongst the plaice they had a plump codling then a small bass before finishing up catching several bream near the Royal Sovereign Buoy. The couple were enjoying themselves so much they contacted Jim and agreed to stay out for an extra hour, returning with a good bag of fish and a bit of sunburn as well.
Steve Venton and his crew didn’t fair quite so well after their early drive down from London. They did pick up a plaice straight away and followed this up with a small codling. Later the trio added some bream, pout and mackerel to their catch. They must have enjoyed the experience as they were soon back on line to book another trip. When they come down in September there could well be some better cod and whiting to add to the range of species available.
