Geary Angling Services were out and about on Friday July 20th.
With a regular group of 5 English anglers and one of the best days of the year so far, we took advantage of the weather and headed for a wreck some 11 miles from Roches point.
After struggling to catch a few dozen mackeral we arrived at the wreck and I was surprised to find there was no nets on her so we had a clear run.
Our first drift produced a full house of coalies ( 3lb.) for one of the anglers and 2 coalies and a nice ling for another. each drift produced 2 or 3 fish mostly ling though not very big all in the 6/12 lb. bracket.
We also landed a few fine Cod with the best 13lb. caught by Tom and also some lovely whiting.
There was also a healthy sign of Pollack with a quite a few weighing in 6+ lbs.
When the flood tide ran in the afternoon we went to anchor and had some great fun with some mighty conger the best 30+.
Then it was back to Ryans to quench the thirst and Trade winds for a good meal.
