It was a lucky break in the weather….. we had chosen a day that was not windy, wasn’t raining, and to be fair wasn’t that cold either considering the fact it was the 19th November!
Clive had organised a trip out on the Top Cat III, a great vessel from Weymouth with a superb skipper called Ivan (who had a fantastic never ending supply of rock music that played all the trip!).
There were 9 of us, no one from my usual crowd of fishers as Neil didn’t do too well on the boat last time. This time though I think he would have enjoyed himself, it was a different experience altogether from the previous one on the Bonwey with Captain Cheerful!
Starting from top left…
- The power of the boat can be seen behind
- My second fish (first was a doggie!)
- Clive pulls in a nice fish
- Clive with same fish
- Another nice little fish
- Clive’s best of the day I think
- Me looking a bit too relaxed
- The back of the boat
- Outside the wheelhouse
- Nice shot of the boat powering towards Weymouth
- Our haul
- Our haul again
All in all an excellent day out, we must have caught over 100 fish between us, a few too many dogfish but plenty of codling and whiting.
Here’s a few short videos I took as well…
