All was fairly quite for most of the session but the sun was shining and the wind negligible so it was pleasant to just be on the water. The top of the tide arrived and we may have well have been anchored for 20 minutes as we never drifted more than 100 yards. Luckily we seemed to stop over the top of some itchy ground and we started getting some interest in the baits.
I was first in with this Bull Huss touching the 10lb mark, a kayak PB for me
At the same time Holly bent into a solid fish that took her into the rough stuff. A minute or too of pulling and coaxing and the unmistakable fight against an eel began.... it wasn't coming on the kayak so was released in the water.... her first Conger, around the 10lb mark.
5 Minutes later and she was in again! Another fat Huss arrived at the surface, again round the 10lb mark...she wasn't holding that either so that one got away lightly too!
Then the tide picked up, we moved off the mark and that was that. Holly managed one dogfish to hokkais in midwater?!? (jammy or what, even it if it is just a dogfish!). I started falling asleep on the kayak in the sun so called it a day, headed in and went and got pasties for lunch....perfect!
I will return with the anchors next time. I have a feeling some bigger and Huss and Congers are there to be had. I do like finding new ground by chance!
