I managed an early morning session at Whitley Bay today. Conditions were brilliant with clear blue skies and no wind (until around 11 am anyway). Fishing was generally pretty slow but I did get some nice Pollock which kept me entertained.
First off I headed to a new (to me) wreck mark about 1.5 miles out. On the second drift I got a nice Pollock on jelly worms but then didn’t get another bite.
I then headed back to my old faithful and fished the marks around St Mary’s Lighthouse. The seals were there in numbers again. I picked up a few small cod and another couple of good pollock before returning home.
It was great to just be out on the water in such calm conditions. It would be great to get these more often 🙂
