Well, at last I got out there! Both Saturday AND Sunday!

Saturday with mate Dave: I didn't like the look of that east wind so went west to try for some Bream and Smoothound off Sowley. We had about a dozen Bream but mostly small with a couple of keepers and surprisingly only one Smoothound about 8lbs. At slack, we went to try Freshwater reef on the flood, but the wind had blown up and as it was going to be wind against tide, we went to Dolphin Bank to try for a Ray and maybe Tope instead. Two Small Eyed Ray and a load of doggies, plus a massive run from a good Tope which let go, was all we got.
Sunday with Allan: Same plan but in reverse. We fished Dolphin Bank on the ebb in the morning to try drifting it. Nothing except one Dog and a surprize Plaice of about 1.5lbs.
Anchored for the rest of the ebb and caught about 5 Tope, all small, one Small Eyed Ray and loads of Dogs. We tried fishing on the top of the bank first then moved to the deeper water on the northern edge drop-off, but it didnít seem to make any difference.
When the tide turned we went to Sowley but apart from one Smoothound, it was dead, plus loads of weed to frustrate us.
had the feathers out for most of the time and caught two Mackerel!
So not a brilliant weekend of fishing, but after a lay-off of twelve months, it was great to be out there!

Sounds you had a good time Martyn even if not the most productive...
I was going to try down the west side next time out again.
Hoping it might be ok this next weekend, Sunday all being well.
Make sure you get out again soon!
All the best,
J
