December 2015
Not too many photos to show you this month I'm afraid because of the non stop run of strong South Westerly winds we've had over the last 2 months forcing us to cancel nearly all of our bookings. When the wind did relent for a few hours allowing us to get to the Needles we found some good mixed species fishing out there including Smoothound, Spurdogs, Bull Huss, Rays, Conger eels and even an Allis Shad just before Christmas which goes to show how warm the water still is. There weren't as many Cod as we were catching in October and November but Simon Rushent caught our biggest of the season weighing 26lb 8oz aboard Sunrise and there were a few more in the 6lb to 8lb bracket that we didn't take photos of.
Very many thanks to everyone who booked a fishing trip with us during 2015 and special thanks to our great regular crews who keep us busy every month year after year, we really appreciate your custom and friendship that makes this job so enjoyable.
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL
