Mull Trip
« on: May 25, 2014, 09:06:58 AM »
had a dodge over the mull yesterday with nicky, we ended up on the west side north of logan to see what we could winkle out the heavy weeded outcrops.
we found it very slow early on especially on the bottom fished rods, fresh crab and fresh mackerel not getting touched, slow going with the pollack rods too no sign of the small 1 1/2-2lb fish which are normally here in fair numbers.
It took a while to come but the first fish was a decent one at 5lb 10oz, took some taming on the lighter rod intended for the smaller fish

got smoked of a couple more fish in the next hour, just couldn't get there heads turned and they went to ground and lost them, so beefed the gear up and switched to redgill on a bass rod.
we managed to land a few now between 2-4lb which still gave a good fight on the heavier tackle, but still getting smashed off the odd better fish which we just couldn't beat, give them an inch and its game over pollack wins,  frustrating but gets the heart going and lots of swearing  smiley-lol.gif

there was a few wrasse in the gullies to crab baits too but not much happening on the big rods apart from a couple of dogs

should of had more pics but we were fishing apart most of the afternoon,
hoping to get back over soon for more than a day which is never enough

Not a bad day after all Dave. Glad the long trip rewarded you with a couple of decent fish.
Hopefully they will be bigger next time.
I will only be out for a couple of hours pet.
