Shetland video from june

Postby tatch1 » Wed Jul 18, 2018 8:32 pm

Well I've finally got the first bit of video sorted from Junes Shetland trip I did put a report on but it disappeared so hopefully heres a copy of it plus some video. Friday morning arrived the annual Shetland trip time was here I hadn't slept as usual like a kid waiting for santa :roll: no matter how many times you visit its like your first time every time :bounce: :D I arrived at Carls house nice & early and off we went. First stop Newcastle to join up with Alex & john who had the crew bus quick transfer of gear & off to pick up willie & tam from Arbroath & Edinburgh then on to Aberdeen onto the ferry for teatime & into the bar for a beer w.she followed by food & more beer :http://www.she :http://www.she & laughs.Down to the cabin when the bar shut .Morning after off we go again for the Toft Ulsta ferry & the journey to Culivoe where we went straight on to the charter boat Oberon with skipper Kenny graham & son callum after the usual exchange & greetings off we went. You always get exited on this boat as you never know whats coming next it always turns up monsters novelty's & personal bests galore & this trip was to be no exception with huge cod ling & Haddock :[url=http://ww :[url=http://ww :http://r29.img & arm wrenching muscle pulling never give up coalies we had it all. We always go have a drink with the locals after day one usually one too many as well but we were too shattered to drink too much this time so after a few tales & many laughs :lol: :lol: :lol: we retired to the digs for a kip :sleep: ready for day two.What a day we had monster ling cod & them oh no :roll: here we go again coalies to 27lb plus :lol: then I got something I knew was no coalie or cod it was a dead weight with lunges like nothing ive felt before it seemed an eternity before it finally came to the boat never seen one before never mind caught one ive got a monk I shouted as an anglerfish of 36lb came over the side :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :affraid: day two ended & we filleted our fish got packed for the long journey back what a trip Thanks to carl Alex & Willie For getting us there & back safe & sound photos and video to follow chaps on another note I took a 30lb- 35lb ZZiplex islander to test to destruction (it didn't destruct ) & my new Avet HX 3 speed Raptor with me what a combination the rod handled everything easily a real joy to use & the reel too sheer quality & also a doddle thanks to the three speeds to tell the truth I was blown away by the quality & performance of both that's my combination for wrecking & sharking from now on with out a doubt :http://r29.img :http://r29.img :http://r29.img :http://www.smi :[url=http://ww :[url=http://ww :[url=http://ww :http://www.pic a few photos from the trip here [url=]Image[/url] ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Super report and excellent catches

How long did it take to get to the fishing marks? Some of the photos show land not so far away
Only here for the cod!
