Trunch lane Friday 25/4 with photos

Post by smallfry » Wed Apr 30, 2014 5:25 pm

Hi all sorry about the late report better late than never ;) lol, anyway change of plan and venue, Friday morning was calm foggy and damp, so I thought I'd chance it high tide 3:51 pm, started fishing about 1 and finished 615, fished 2 rods 1 with 3 hook flapper size 1hooks the other 4/0 clipped pennel, usual baits blacks and dirty squid nothing to the squid all session. Flounders on the blacks not big but plenty ended with 11 all returned but on second to last cast I caught what at first I thought was a mackerel but closer inspection not sure what it was can any one help sorry about the rubbish photo wasn't sure if it's a small whiting but it's bluey green on its back not sandy brown

I reckon it's a Coalfish or Coley, don't see them down our way but quite common in the north west.

Thanks for all the replies but I've googled pictures of both species and it doesn't look like either of them as it doesn't have the lateral lines, also I thought both species inhabit rocky shores and trunch lane is flat and sandy that's what's thrown me. Thanks again
Tight lines Ian

Sorry about the slip up but it's a pouting, not good to eat and normally nicks the bait intended for bass.
Cheers
keith :D :D
