Rock Channel/Formby

Postby Big Kev » Sun Jun 11, 2017 2:22 pm

Tide took an age to ebb at the channel yesterday but we eventually crossed at 4.15pm and got out in between the church and coastguard station...John Wilson stopped a bit shorter and blanked.The strong offshore breeze meant i was emptying my reel on my distance rod,but to no avail as all we could find was lots of carp in the water clinging to the line.An hour before low i reeled in and thought i`d hooked a ray with the dead weight,but i`d got tangled with Bluecats line,so we both reeled in and a hound was splashing around in the surf,but who`s was it :?: We walked back to get the gear on the beach and saw a hound and a dab beached and luckily enough the hound was mine and the dab was Micks :badgrin:
Another dab for Mick was the total for the disappointing session so off we went to Formby in search of bass.
A glorious evening with a nice surf meant hopes were high of a fish or two...
It was`nt long before Mick had the first offer...
I also landed a monster...
The top gulley looked very good with a couple of deep holes and that`s where we thought we`d have some action,but it was`nt to be,with just the one more small fella for Mick to end the night
Species 2017...Dogfish...Dab...Whiting...flounder...Bull Huss...Thornback ray...spotted ray...Bass
