Daphne Carole 6/5/12

Post by fishingnuts95 » Mon May 07, 2012 4:22 pm

Was out again on the daphne Carole yesterday and relief skipper phil white (skipper of chinook 2) took us out. Left the marina around 8 and was fishing within 40 minutes. In the first hour and a half I had my only 3 skate of the day followed by a couple of doggies for the remaining 5-6 hours :( however it was only me having problems as between the other 6 on the boat there was between 50-60 skate caught! :) All females were returned with only 15 or do males kept. Weather was terrible but at least the fishing made up for it, well for the other 6 at least! bait was squid and herring but I believe most skate was caught on squid. There were other charter boats out but they only managed around 30 skate each so once again phil put us on the fish!
Thanks,
James
