Doggy Style on Fathers Day

Rate this Entry
4.10am and the alarms gone off - got to pick Dad up for a trip to a rock mark. We get to the spot just as the sun pop's it's head over the Moors.



One rod out each on peeler, and 5 mins and a typical dogfish bite gives the first fish of the day.




I forgot to do my hair before we left......

Another doggy bite, and a much better result..



The Smoothhound had arrived!

Pretty much a fish a cast, the trick was not to hit the bite until the fish pulled the rod over and took line from the clutch





A big set of surf came through, and the bites totally stopped for about a quarter of an hour. My rod then just absolutely melted off, I couldn't get the rod tip up for about 20 seconds or so, and every time I did, it went off again until it finally cut me on a rock. Grrrrrrrrr.

A much stranger bite gave this monster



Which now lives in the bottom of a pot in dads kitchen!

Dad was by now worried that his MoJo had left him, as he's normally the one to catch 1st/the most and the biggest, but he didn't have a touch, so he wound himself up for a big cast that did the trick



Another for me to keep in the lead



Dad in again





I then had the mother of all dogfish, it was huge. but being a dogfish there was no way I was taking a piccy ( a bit like double figure bream and tench )

A couple more doggies and we packed up. Good fun though!
