I decided to go out just north of Medmery Bank today which had about 17m depth of water at high tide.
Very flat water and cruised at 23 knots there and back with hardly another boat seen all day – biggest wave about 3.5 inches…. and nice easy fishing for a change. The sea fog threatened a few times, but didn’t get too bad luckily.
A few whiting, and lots of doggies and pout all day, which took anything from lug, sandeel, whole squid and even double squid!
Also, caught a 11.5lb Undulate Ray on a whole mackerel flapper at slack water though, which is a new species for me. I’ll have to try a small pout or whiting as bait for cod or conger next time, but probably next year now looking at the weather forecast for next week.
