Nice dive yesterday out west. Saw plenty of bass but nothing over two pounds so I thought I'd have a go at trying to catch a golden grey. I saw loads of mullet but it definitely took me a while to work out which were the golden and which were the grey.
Not sure if the grey were thin or thick lipped but I could start to tell the difference between the golden at least.
Missed a few! They tend to zip around in the top water and often near rocks so I was a bit careful of not lining up a nice granite rock behind them.
Found a white bream too and had a decent shot on that. Saw another one later on in the dive that fled, I tried a hidden aspetto but it had gone - looked a good size too.
The night before I'd been on a night dive with Pierre & John.
Good dive and plenty fishy - it's amazing how the time flies when there are fish about and it got late fast.
We saw alot of small red mullet, John found a big one. Pierre had a decent sole and 'helped' me with the gilthead. Quite a few lobsters about, picked up the fist one and wasn't sure about the size but John measured it and was well over. The second one I picked up was pretty big but a bit blonde. I had a decent plaice too.
I measured the gilthead: 40cm / 1lb 14oz / 866g (I think this is the minimum for the comp?).
Lobster went 2lb 9oz / 1180g
Plaice: 1lb 6oz / 626g
Good dives, good company, good eating.
