The unsettled weather we had in March and April kept the water from clearing and made the wrecking a little patchy at times, so the start wasn't very encouraging.
Lots of large double-figure Pollack provided the majority of sport on the offshore wrecks, with the occasional large Ling showlng on most trips. The best Pollack recorded onboard weighed in at 24lbs.
Right from the early part of the season the Bass were to be found on the wrecks in good numbers with many being caught around the 10lb mark.
There were a few really good days when the Cod gave us a welcome surprise with specimen fish showing in vast quantities.
There's nearly always a possibility of catching Conger and there are lots of them in specimen size. The largest Conger recorded onboard was over 80 lbs but we've still yet to find 'the big'un'. ( The divers reckon they've seen them!)
