Ty Croes Mon 25 March

Postby Patriot » Tue Mar 26, 2019 3:55 pm

Got down to the island at 10am Monday and fished until 9pm.


Lovely morning.

Steady through the day, pin whiting, a small codlet, usual dogs


Early afternoon and the first ray. Not huge, about 3lb, but nice to get one out

Then a couple of small taps, looked like whiting, left for a few mins and continued with gentle taps

Reeled in and straight away, this is no whiting!

First shore caught huss of the year, great scrap and managed to get it up ontothe rocks. Well chuffed. It's not a species i have had much luck with, so bit of a bonus

Lovely fish, incredibly strong and i guess it was nugding towards 10lb

I don't carry scales, but will sort some out for the next trip.

The dogs and whiting continued.

Just before the sun set, another reasonable tap tap and into something very special.

A second huss, bigger than the first one. Struggled to get down to it with the red weed on the rocks. It's a bit slippy to say the least

Unfortunately having got down, i left the phone in my box, so no pics

Darkness came and it simply went nuts. I had to slide my way down to a lower rock platform and get a footing was difficult

Two thornies in quick succession - i would say 5-6lb, followed by a third huss slighly bigger than the previous two

No photos, just a quck release to get the fish back. Getting back for the phone was'nt worth it on that red weed

And of course dogfish

With it cooling down at 9pm, the rocks were hazardous and so i called it a day

Went back down for 6am, but other than lovely weather, no fish.

Headed home at 1pm, well satisfied

Certainly got a great scrap. Trying to lift from a height was impossible with the zippy m4, but i had the Excaliber TT also and managed to lift with that one

They do wellies and boots Jeff.Go for the wellies if you feel your ankles need more support.
