Got in for a dive this evening with Ed, Edd and Brandon.
Glad the weather is a bit calmer than last week. We went west and were greeted with half decent vis and calm conditions. Saw a decent selection of species including a few small turbot which Edd has on camera so will hopefully post. Bass were everywhere this evening. Found a small but legal plaice sitting on top of the sand which was left and then later in the dive a bigger one which was completely buried except for its eyes. This one came home with me and weighed in at 2lb 11oz so not to shabby at all. Haven't seen many decent sole around this year though! Wonder why....
Also took a couple of nice sized red mullets.
Nice dive with great company, cheers guys.

Monday evening dive with Edd...

Good dive but a little murky and that got the brain thinking about what was lurking. Found some fish and squid so all worked out in the end. Gilthead was 47cm / 2lb 7oz / ~1125g.

In again last night with K, B & E.

Found a nice lobser (1kg). Found a pair with Edd that seemed to be fighting, Edd grabbed one to have a look but ended up being too small - he grabbed another larger one on the way in - nice one!

Saw black bream, squid, red mullet ... more red mullet ... even more red mullet. I stopped at 3 and everyone had a decent catch.

The gar were a bit of a nuisance and I got jabbed in the mouth - Edd took revenge and shot one. Quite a few bass about, I took a medium sized one as did Brandon and we left the rest. I think Edd saw some lunkers but settled on a decent pollock. Kerin's plaice was nice but we didn't really see too many flat fish. Strange?
