Weymouth's inshore marks are now beginning to produce the odd nice Bream of up to 4lbs but they are very being difficult to locate in any great quantities. A few nice Plaice have been caught upto 6lbs and have also been hard to find in any numbers. The Shambles Bank has also provided the occassional good Turbot and Brill, but again, not very many. The most productive sport has been the small Pollack on the wrecks/reefs, there seems to be loads of these on all the popular marks. A number of Bass are now showing on these inshore wrecks but nothing very big coming to the net as yet.
The offshore marks have been very productive with large numbers of double figure Pollack, and over 20 pounders being regularly brought to the boat with the odd Cod and large Ling often make a showing at the same time.
Mike Trowbridge with a 20 plus pound Ling from a mid-channel wreck.(Mike likes catching these because he knows Richard the Skipper hates to fillet them!)
Robert Lyn aged 14 years of Weymouth with a specimen Cod of 23lbs caught on an inshore mark.
John Burden from Wyke Regis caught this 24lb Cod 10 miles off the coast of Alderney.(shame about the trousers John!)
