Lazing around the harbour

I just fancied a bit of chilled out fishing around the harbour this weekend and to see if I could pick up a few more species to add to this years tally. I didn't bother with the mackerel this time but ended up catching six species all the same, three new ones for me. All were caught on a Carolina rigged Gulp sandworm except for the pollock which took a curl-tailed grub on a 2g jig-head. No monster sized fish but a bit of fun all the same.

Check out the gnashers on this little Goldsinny Wrasse!

A beautifully coloured Corkwing Wrasse

and a little Ballan Wrasse to complete the set... (well nearly)
