A big Small Eyed Ray
Competition Day !
I anchored on clean ground and I was going all-out for big fish with running ledgers baited with half a fillet of mackerel on one rod and a whole squid on the other. 15 minutes later and a dogfish found the squid for species number 1. Soon after and the mackerel had attracted a better bite. I hooked into the unmistakable fight of a ray but it didn’t feel too big. I played it steadily as I really didn’t want to lose it and gentle persuasion brought a nice Spotted Ray to the kayak, a reasonable size too at over 4lb.
A Lucky Streak!
