First Double Of The Season

Postby Richie Fisher » Sat Jun 10, 2017 12:56 pm

Had a session on the Rock Channel yesterday afternoon (9th). Found Greg waiting to cross, and was soon joined by Alan Jones from the Mersey Hounds. We set up and lashed out our peeler with high hopes. Nothing happened for the first half hour or so and then I noticed what looked like a flounder bite on my rod so I wound in so as not to waste time. It felt quite heavy and I landed a 3lbs 2ozs Thorny..

Soon after Alan landed a smoothy about the same weight (sorry no pic).

About an hour before low my rod arched over, and as I lifted into a good resistance I felt that horrible grating on your line as I'd hit a huge clump of weed. Thankfully, quite quickly, the fish had pulled me clear of it and it was now a clean fight. I was rewarded with my first double figure Smoothy of the season weighing-in at 10lbs 2ozs..

Wasn't aware of anything else being caught and so I called it a day.
