Skipper Luke Aston was out over the weekend, the nice Indian summer weather giving a nice couple of days to finish off his main season. Take it away, Luke…

Thank you to all that fished with me this year, a year where Mother Nature gave us very little brakes.
Overall I was happy with catches. Mackerel where hard for the second half of the season but there was plenty of whitefish. The porbeagles gave a great showing and there seemed to be more Blue Shark around. The Tope fishing also seemed to be up a bit.
I’m away now for a couple of weeks but if the conditions are right I may try for a tuna. Otherwise thanks for taking an interest in what I do and see you next season.

Thanks indeed to Luke for his regular updates throughout the season, keeping us all entertained and wishing we were afloat on the Clare Dragoon, rod in hand… to finish off, here is a selection of some of the best photos Luke sent in over the year.
