Post subject:  Deal Rays of hope

A report of yesterdays trip
My mission today was to try and snag me a thorny so armed mostly with Bluey some squid and lug I paddled out to my mark which was just over a mile out and just inside the Downs Bouy.
Deal somewhere in the distance.

I initially set anchor and began to fish but with the combination of wind over tide making life difficult I was not happy that I was anchored to fish the bottom of a sloping part of sea bed and after a few dogs and whiting I re anchored before set about fishing again.
It was then either a dog a cast or the odd whiting until the ebb tide began to kick in then on the bluey rod I had a couple of nice nods before I bent into a nice Thornback.

Now I was happy  lol.gif mission accomplished, I later had my 1st codling of the year that was thrown back to grow bigger.
Image
Before having another ray only this time smaller.
Image
Then with conditions if anything getting worse I decided on a move inshore and anchored over a slightly raised mound of seabed, I fished for just under an hour and managed another codling and a couple of Dab with one coming home for tea.
Image
My first ray I kept and is now nicely filleted and in the freezer and on the beach weighed a nice 11lb 2 oz so all in all not a bad day afloat and a nice mixed bag of fish.
