Fishing in general picks up....
Fishing in general seems to have started to pick over the last two weeks inside and outside the harbour. The recent mild spell has helped tremendously and, at last, the water temperatures are starting to pick up after that extended cold snap and easterly winds.
Joe Lynch, charter skipper of Wreckhunter, has sent us in this report '....We had a nice day out with a local party on Saturday 27th April. We started off Trabolgan in blazing sunshine. We had a great start with a very welcome 2-3 dozen or so fine spring Mackeral. Its great to see Mackeral early in the season. We then moved onto some favourite haunts and got a few Pollack, but it was slow going. Only when the tide changed did things pick up. At that stage we were in deeper water and caught some nice fish, including the 13.5lb Cod and 12lb Ling (pictured above and below). The fresh Mackeral strips seemed to be the best baits. All in all a welcome change to have a nice bag of fish and a red face (from the Sun!)'
