OCEAN STAR - MERSEY BEAT

Postby Paul M » Sun Oct 21, 2007 4:36 pm

After watching England go down fighting last night and also with EFC'S defeat yesterday it was time for something good to happen. :lol:
We all arrived on time at the Warf which is probably a first and set off out into the River in Darkness at 06:30am. Ocean Stars new engines are fantastic and she really moves.

Waddy was in first and reeled in the first Thornie 5 minutes after the first cast. Martin was also into a nice PB 10.5oz Thornie.


Image

This was the beginning of one of the best Boat trips I have ever been on.
The chuckle brothers where soon in again and 2 more thornies where proffesionally netted by skipper Steve.

Image

Nige followed with a doggie

Image

Then I lost count and track of who was catching what

Johns turn
Image

Then Jeff

Image

I was beggining to get worried until this 10lb 8oz PB came in.

Image

I followed this with 8 more thornies the smallest at 6lb plus.

Image


After a sandeel and a couple of tips and a rig Joe got his first and PB

Image

Then Nige got his.

Image

More followed and I even caught one on a dab rig using size 1 hooks. I was devistated that I never caught a dab :lol: :lol:

Jeff and john hooked the same fish

Image

Martin had a coffee and a chat and then reeled in this 8lb Codling. :lol: :lol:

Image

He was;nt a happy man honest :lol: :lol:

Image

Jeff with another Thornie

Image

No blankers in site and and a fantastic day.
The finally tally for the boat was 36 Thornies, 6 dogs, 12 whiting and martins Mr Cod. All in 5 hrs

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

It is actually. Just a tad short of 70lb. Cod to 200lb have been caught in icelantic waters in trawler nets.
