Was out aboard the daphne carole again on thursday looking to catch some skate and smoothounds with the chance of a bass or two :) I was in a group of 7 and another group of 2 joined us. Fishing was steady throughout the day with about 10 skate caught, about 6 smoothhounds, 8 or so bass and tons of dogfish!
My personal tally for the day was a skate of around 5/6lb, a few doggies but best of all a P.B bass of around 4lb! :D
Weather wise, i have had better days in december to be honest with constant rain all day apart from the first 40 mins or so.
Bait used was hermits, squid, herring and black lug but the majority of fish were caught on squid!
