Round 6 saw us back at the Rock Channel at the second time again in search of Smooth Hounds as the bonus species. The Hounds have been a bit hit and miss lately with some tides bringing the fish into the channel in good numbers while others have seen only single fish or in the worst cases, none at all make an appearance.

Despite the early start and the miserable weather we had another good turn out for this one and here are the lads who braved the miserable elements..............

Rob Turner was first up..................

Image

Joined by his friend and another newcomer to the league, Wayne Kirby..................

Image

Jeff White was next up................

Image

Paul Argent was back for this one after missing the last few.................

Image

Ste Atkinson was also back in line........................

Image

Andy Wilmore was next up......................

Image

Stu Davies had dragged himself out of his pit...................

Image

As had Dale Edwards who was back from his holidays.............

Image

Dave Roberts was next up....................

Image

Followed by league leader Dave Radcliffe............................

Image

And the man who found the only Hound last time, Dylan Kensall............

Image

Gary Swift was next up................

Image

Followed by Wirral Sea Fishing's very own David Bailey, Richie Fisher.....................

Image

Last man up was Roy Schofield...................

Image

Again we were delayed in getting across due to a decent Northerly breeze getting up and holding the tide back a bit from emptying out as quickly as normal however we were soon all across and the walk out began. A lot more people made the long walk this time than last time and when we were all out and set up we got going as soon as possible......................

Image

Again there was a decision to make from the off, go big and target the Hounds or go small and hope the other fish were there in numbers and still give yourself the chance of a bonus Hound if one came along. Ste Atkinson went with a big fresh crab bait and second cast he got what he was after in the form of this 87cm Hound........................

Image

Myself and Dave Radcliffe had both started on small hooks again and we had both started to catch a steady stream of fish in the form of Whiting and Dabs. A few of the other lads were also catching with Roy Schofield, Stu Davies and Dave Roberts all getting a few fish on their cards. As we approached half was in the match I had a better bite and picked my rod up to feel something going ballistic on the end. As I brought it into the edge I could see it was a Sole and it looked a good fish too. At 39cm and 1lb 7oz I was made up...............................

Image

The fish was proving hard to hold up properly for a picture so the best I could do to show the size and give it some scale as hold it across my two hands.................

Image

Into the second half of the match the weather took a turn for the better and the sun came out. The fish were still coming for a few people with double shots like this Whiting and Gurnard combo....................

Image

There were a few Gurnard on show and this was the best one of the match at 29cm for Stu Davies.................

Image

The fishing dried up in the last half an hour and we all made our way back off the bank with time to spare. We now move onto Round 7 which will see a date and fixture change to be confirmed in the fixtures section ASAP.

Thanks for a great report Adam, well done on the result, really good to see everybody again after missing the last few matches. Really enjoyed the trip out to the sandbank, even though I only managed a single small Dab!! See you all at the next meet.

Well done to the winners and what a cracking sole Adam! I tried everything in my locker and didn't even get a single bite whilst all around were catching. Very frustrating!
I went back out in the evening for about 2 hours with the Akios team and I had a 7lbs 8oz smoothie and a 3lbs 7oz ray. We all caught smoothhounds. What a difference a single tide makes!
