I took a last minute decision to take Tuesday off for the light winds – although they were the dreaded east winds!  Amazing weather for the end of October, especially in the afternoon with the sun out and very mild.  Fishing not so hot though – I only had two bites all day; a 8lb thornback on the first cast and a small 2-3lb starry smoothound on the last cast, with no doggies or pout in between, which was a bit of a surprise.

I did catch a mini starfish on lug and a couple of big spider crab on whole squid, which may explain the lack of fish bites 😊

Anyway, I still had a great day out on the water– always plenty to see around this part of the IOW with the anchored tankers, cross-channel ferries and the cliff scenery.
