    My neighbour says he has never in his 80 years ever seen so many bloody Spiky Dogs
    Double hook ups - 5 chasing the hooked ones to the surface - just 100's in shallow and deeper
    I will test the waters finally tomorrow if not cleaning the boats under hull
    Look at mate in Thames today - all over 40cm

    After clean up I headed off down the bay to call catch up with the cod masters @stingray and family.
    Awesome weather and company, a deer and a pig already hanging in the woodshed when I arrived in the evening crays in the kitchen, beers yarns and bed.
    Leisurely start in the morning, I may or may not have woken everyone up after my morning walk and we were off in the big boat with the cod masters.

    Cods and crays acquired we had a lovely cruise back to the carrot patch while giving the aux a run and having some tea and biscuits.
    Someone must have picked the patch already tho as we were inundated with more cod and spiky dogs we pulled the pin and headed home for clean up.

    Awesome as always thanks for the invite Joe.

    You will definitely get less spikys.....cuda could be a problem but if kept near the bottom should be ok.

    Well after all the talk we are fishing again ...young keen for a evening freedive saw us out in wonderful vis hunting crays in a wčedbed , son and mate did on his sweet spot pulling a handful of keepers ...my honey hole saw shead shells and emptiness.

    Home shower food cook up bed ..woken by a wet cold nose of VCs hound jess...up and away down the coast with easing seas.. worked over some cod then tanked a favourite spot Vs caves ...dropped in and honestly counted 15 or more shead shells in and around the cave...scraped up 3 keepers ..blew rest of the tank on a shallow reef to no avalie ...lads tripped around Durville shot butters a silver drummer and some crays ..great weather even better company ...so very very good to get wet again

    Snuck out with the flat fish expert this evening, took the flounder dog and all, enjoyed a lazy beer and some relaxed happy company and watched the sun set , the birds fished and we did bugger all as the tide made, not a lot of push so we made do with a good dozen flats. Dog got a run and some pats, and VC and I got fishing time...priceless!

    Thanks Cam tastes we buggers they are!

    Had a very hard morning....in my top 3 worst fishing days ever.
    Against my better judgement tryed shallow from Nelson, sharked out and steamed up to peppin.... undersized cod, into Delaware for gurnard not a single bite even dropped a longline baits untouched.....out to my 30m spot....wind burly current all perfect....not a bite..... longline one gurnard. 1pm I had had enough and steamed home.
    Oh well at least the boat got a good run.

    Can't like that VC, but if it makes you feel any better i had exactly the same result with this today.



    Not a bite !!

    Lovely day on the coast tho. Swell has being building all day and is pretty impressive right now, waves the size of a house.

    We heading home in the am but looks like heavy rain is coming.

    Tide started to push on the green hills at 1230 fishing kicked into gear about 115. Young folk shoot way down got two snaps , 4 terries, and massive cod! Long cold day for them no sun and gentle southerly breeze.

    So its not just me or us in inner Pelorus
    Caught my 2 (only two allowed for us peasants) Cod yesterday in no time - then tried 4 places and just nothing apart for a couple of Spotties
    Even the Spiky Dog's had a day off
    Think my 2 Cod cost $20 each :-(
