Sunday 8th in Rock channel

Postby Blue topaz » Wed Sep 11, 2019 2:30 pm

A fairly last minute decision was made to get out and take advantage of a decent calm day alongside Chris and his father in law, Rick, from Ontario.
The sea state was a bit changeable but overall was flat calm

Chris brought some top quality fresh Lug and rag and I feel pretty sure this was pivotal in the catching to follow so that was much appreciated.Some feathers were used to see if any mackerel were about but we soon gave up on this as the water was a little bit too coloured.
Fish soon started to come aboard with baits and two decent Plaice were landed by Chris and Rick
Doggies came in numbers and we had some interesting silvery patterns on some of them.
Usually dabs are plentiful at this mark but I think all day just 2 dabs were landed
A tope pup and then smoothounds fell pray to Rick just after low water
Chris then got a couple of Rays aboard
Rick was explaining about fish in Canada and we could explain to him about one of our little hazards when the Weaver made an appearance
We discussed the species that were usual in the channel and felt that to make up 8 species on the day a Gurnard should be next and so it was!!
It was a fantastic days fishing, and whilst there were periods of inaction and you start thinking maybe we should move on when the next rush came on and that was a pattern for the day. In essence as a result we stayed in one spot all day and taking 8 species aboard was our reward.

We returned followed by Wavedancer and locked back in about 6.30 pm. A pleasurable and memorable day with great company,

Great day out that was Mike. Pretty steady fishing all day really and nice to see such wide variety of species in the channel. The big fat plaice were a nice surprise too!
