Seven members left to fish aboard MV Ardent at Arbroath. We met at McDonalds for a coffee and a quick chat. Sailed at 9.00am and headed out to where some other boats were fishing. Had a few drifts only small fish were about. Matt was the first one into what looked like a good fish on his spinning rod a cod off a 1lb 8ozs.
The skipper decided to have a shot over the bell rock light house which proved to be a better decision as Frank had a solid take but after a couple off turns off the reel it popped the hook.The tide picked up bait and the drift became.faster all the time the skipper tried to keep us on the fish. Through out the day the main stay was cod and wrasse and a small ling for Tony.
We run a five pound sweep on the day. £17.50 for the heaviest Cod and £17.50 for any other heaviest fish. James had the heaviest cod at 4lbs 5ozs and David the heaviest wrasse at 1lb 10ozs well done guys. A good day out for all.
