Skipper Luke Aston has been busy over the past week, with some decent weather helping no doubt. Luke’s son David was getting married this week, and in advance of the big day he joined the crew for a day afloat with Dad. There were lots of mackerel about, providing plenty of bait, so they had their first go at the tope for this season.

Bait aplenty

In honour of David’s nuoptials, the crew let him take the first run, and he landed a nice tope.

The rest of the crew had some good action too, and everyone had takes with some nice fish to the boat. All fish were males with the best around 35lbs.

Luke also spent a day drifting the reefs, a slow drift in foggy conditions but the day brightened up as it went on. Fishing was good with lots of coalfish and some steady pollack catches. There were also spurdogs to specimen size about.

Go fishing…
