February is traditionally a very slow month and this year it was even slower than usual, with poor weather and ever poorer fishing. In fact most of February and March can be described as dogfish, dogfish, conger, dogfish. A few settled days allowed the long-distance boats like Harvest Moon to head for the wrecks, and some good pollack were brought to the boats.  Nearer shore we were looking for plaice, but few appeared. We expect bream to arrive in Spring but bream in early March was a surprise. The bream season seems to be much longer than it ever was, which is a sign of the changes going on around us.  As you can see from the photo gallery below, if you managed to get baits past the dogfish and conger there are still a few other species there including ray, spurdog, early smoothhound and a bonus brill!
