John Fleming had a good crew out at the weekend and they enjoyed some stunning weather on the bay. Fishing was hectic at times, with plenty of mackerel around, wrasse, coalfish and some nice pollack. Most were returned but the lads brought a few fillets home for the bbq. Hard to blame them!

Sunday another group had a good bit of sport again, including plenty of pollack, ling, wrasse, pouting and loads of mackerel. They tried a couple of hours at anchor for tope but no joy unfortunately.
