could be the bad winds we have been getting the last couple of years driving bait fish up from the med through the western approaches might be worth trying to net some and find out what they are ?.

On the plus side, that means more fish to survive to grow up. I wonder what species?

Knowing our luck it will be a few more Dogfish LOL

From what I saw a couple of weekends ago that might even have been Jellyfish (although no swim bladders to reflect off) - there were hundreds drifting through off on the Horse tail!
Btw we had mainly dogs, 3 small bream, a decent undulate and a smoothound pup.

I was out Saturday. Ray must have thought I was shadowing him! Mackerel in patches, two strings then nothing. Drifted for one dogfish then anchored up close inshore for a bass and a thornback. These (pic below) kept passing, no takers on the feathers or herring gear. My guess is herring but too early in the day for them to feed. What do you think?

Good luck, canít waste light winds and a lovely day but could be tricky...
Think I will just try over slack water drifting. I guess too big for mid channel wrecks too.
Frustrating, still long term forecast for the weekend after doesnít look too bad.
