Off the mark at last...

A bit of a slow session and not a whole lot to report but we caught, not a lot admittedly but we caught all the same. Myself and Sam decided to try a bit of LRF at a local harbour mark.

Sam was first off the mark with a small pollock, taken in close, otd with a Reins Rockvib. It went quiet after that so we decided to try another spot. The second spot was full of small fry/sand eel seemingly drawn in by the ambient light but surprisingly there didn't seem to be any bigger fish in feeding on them. I decided to try and let the lure swing in along the harbour wall, just as it hit the bottom I felt a little pluck and lifted into a better fish (relatively speaking), a nice little codling. We fished on for a while longer but unfortunately we didn't get any more fish.
