Port Patrick charter boat fishing
Tony, Iain and John headed down to Port Patrick to meet up with Matt and his nephew for a day fishing aboard optimus. We had planed for fishing for huss and spurs but arriving at the mark there was a scallop boat dredging. Plan b go spinning for in shore fish till the boat moves off the mark.
We caught some small Pollack and coalfish.
The scallop boat stayed there all day so we headed to another mark which Dominic knew but all we had were loads off doggies and two small bull huss.
last drop we had some dabs, whitting and Pollack. The biggest Pollack went to John at 3 1/2 lbs winning £12.50 in the sweep. Iain had the longest bull huss winning £12.50 in the sweep.

Hitting the beaches at the weekend
Shane and John headed to the beach last night. Arriving at the mark the surf looked bang on. In the first couple of hours they had landed a few bass and Flounders till the weed made it unfishable.
