Skipper Mark Gannon was back out after skate this week and his boat has been seeing a lot of action. Yesterday’s Mark’s anglers from Belgium and the Netherlands had a smashing day. They landed lots of good skate and the fishing was thick and fast. They had a triple hook up at one stage!

Three hooked at once and two landed..

The biggest of their fish was 166cm with a wingspan of 120cm. Not bad at all but no competition for the catches from Tuesday (25 September). Mark takes up the story…
