David Edwards, skipper of charter boat Tigger, reports on some fine pollack caught over the weekend:

The first two charters of the season took advantage of calm seas over the weekend and despite the cool temperature plenty of fish were caught. Pollack were the main target although Sunday did provide some welcome cod and ling along with a couple of dozen mackerel to add to the mix.

Best fish of the weekend was the 12lb Pollack caught by bodybuilder Bartek Krolikowski who was fishing with the Watercourse Angling Centre lads on Saturday, it was Bartek’s first ever specimen Pollack so was understandably delighted with his catch.

Go fishing…

Tigger is a purpose built Procharter 31 angling boat, powered by a 330HP diesel engine and equipped with all necessary safety equipment. Reef and ground drift fishing is generally the most productive method with the potential to catch in excess of 20 species if you adapt your lures and baits accordingly. From mid June through to October it’s usually possible to target the blue shark fishing that is predominatly between 10-15 miles off the estuary.  All sharks are released and recent seasons have seen larger species such as mako and threshers being sighted more frequently.
