TOPe O THE MORNIN TO YA

Postby GAZZ3R » Sun Jun 18, 2017 7:45 pm

With the tides bein at weird times over the weekend I had a failed attempt at getting up at 2am on Saturday morning to go searching for Sole and Eels. With a bit of thinking and working things out I thought I could get to the Lleyn, Either Pwllheli or a Rock mark, I decided on the Rock mark where I could target Mackerel Wrasse Pollock and Tope. Cutting a long story short I managed just small pollock, nailing my lures sometimes not even getting chance to hit the sea bed and whack, something pulled the rod tip, maybe a good Pollock? I'll never know cos it dove straight for a snag and that was the end of that, just as I was changing my lure over I heard my reel on my Tope rod, ZZZZ then ZZZZZZZZZZZ this is a Tope I thought, I picked the rod up and off it went again for a longer run, at the end of the run I lifted into it, yep fish on, after a 15 to 20 min tussle I managed to get it into place to scramble down to it and land it , all 33lb 10 oz of a fine specimen of a Tope Sorry the pics aren't too good, it's a bit difficult on your own.Image
Image[/url] after gettin a good soaking landing it I called it a day, the Tide was getting really low I was wet but hey I didn't mind that so off home I went feeling really great ending fishin on a high note, a celebratory drink is in order I think Image :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Well in gazza laaaaaa. Very much well deserved after coming within a whisker of landing one a few weeks back. And caught on a Tip Tornado Ultra Light. Just goes to show that you don't need pokers to land big fish.
Well in once again mate :dance:

Brilliant tope Gaz :clap: :clap:

I was heading there Sunday morning but caught lazyitis before leaving home. Wish I'd gone now!

I'll have to ask you how you landed it on your own because it's a difficult mark on your own.
