Why Aye Eyemouth
« on: September 01, 2014, 12:27:26 PM »
Wow!!, what a tremendous day it was for SAR member Fishingmark at Eyemouth yesterday.  .cool.  Two new personal bests...a 10lb shore caught pollack!  a specimen ballan wrasse of 4lb to!, dreams are made of this.  happy_days.gif


Marks 10lb pollack





We headed up at 9 am, on arrival two locals had already pulled in a 9 lb kelpy cod and a ling of around 4 or 5 lb. Things looked perfect with a flat sea and sunshine, we couldn't have asked for more.  .sunny.


Float fishing above the heavy kelp seemed to be the best method on the day and it wasn't long before I was smashed up by something huge, a pollack most likely. 


Jigging the float had the wrasse walloping into the bait, with some nice specimens to 4lb.  Mark has been after a good wrasse this summer so I was over the moon when he managed to land a good one.  Unbelievably his bass rod took off in the air when one wrasse took the bait, some raw power in those scrappers!  Luckily I managed to grab the rod before it headed into the sea and Mark was on.  ???


Marks pb wrasse





It was hectic stuff for a couple of hours and even the appearance of a huge seal didn't put the fish off.  It was then that I caught in the corner of my eye Mark struggling with something big on the end of his 30g spinning rod, net at the ready and with a fine bit of angling skill by Mark the fish was in the net, phew!!! smiley-lol.gif  A 10lb pollack!, it was that heavy it broke my landing net....class! smiley32


Before we had to head off the spot I was smashed up by another big pollack to, they were certainly about today  .frantic.  Ragworm and black lug, float fished were easily the killer baits with peeler crab bottom fished for the codling working quite well.


We moved on to another mark at Eyemouth before we were trapped by the flooding tide...here it was slower but we did manage lots of coalies, codling and another wrasse before heading home at 7pm.


Today was certainly Mark's day, get in  .happydancer.



I think Brian J who came along to has a few more pictures to add to this thread, tightlines JV. .cool.

What a trip for Mark (The trawlerman) Batey. It certainly was to be Marks day today & it was a pleasure for me & JV to see 2 splendid specimen fish landed.
It didn’t look to good for us when up popped the biggest seal I have ever seen but as it turned out it didn’t put the fish off.



From Marks first cast with a slappy back it was fish all the way starting with a lovely sized wrasse.



Then a lovely coloured kelpy codling.



Then the fish of a lifetime a 10lb Pollock



JV & myself just seemed to be spectators but Dave did manage to land a couple of wrasse & loads of kelpy cod.



Even though despite all the fish that were being caught I only ended up with 2 coalies (Anglers & danglers).  Despite being absolutely knackered & also dropping my coolbox down the cliff it was a fantastic day to be out fishing.
Great location, great weather, great fishing & great company. Thanks lads.
Well done Mark on 2 terrific PB’s & better still for returning ALL fish.
PS My turn next time.  ;) ;)

I will only be out for a couple of hours pet.

I'm a very happy man Terry. I don't have days like that too often so I really appreciate them when they come along. Worst of it is the last time I fished that spot I wasted my time spinning when I should have put a bait out on a light rod and float fished with the spinning rod. You live and learn. I learned some good stuff from Dave while I was up there, the marks to fish and how to fish them best.

I like to watch and learn every time I am out mate I have picked loads of stuff you never read of in books over the past couple of years since joining the two different forums and fishing with the lads off them and I have also picked loads up off Andy Rutherford mate
