Hi Chris, Not much different here in Guernsey, although some of the boys are scalloping to keep there fitness levels up, the shore fishing sounds pretty decent though but not enough viz to warrant a spear mission at the moment.A bleak start to 2020 in the South West.
I’m hoping for a spell of settled weather to get out and have an explore after the winter storms. Something unusual normally appears.
Well done you. Hope to get in this weekend. If it’s chilly I may have to use the 5mm.View attachment 55999
First trip out since March, and it didn’t disappoint.
The water was still quite cold, not helped by the NE wind. We dived the low, getting in at 0530 and dived the rising tide.
Viz was starting to deteriorate in part due to the May bloom and the wind chop, but was a very useable 4-5m.
These were the only takeable lobsters we found, all the others were berried females or undersized.
One cuttle was taken as well, a big Bull Huss
came out to play and a decent Topknot was found.
No bass about though, and a small shoal of 3lb-ish mullet swam by in the shallows.
