Jeff, Dave and myself headed out at Blyth this morning to fish some distant rough ground. We arrived around 5.45. It was mild with no wind and the sunrise was lovely! Were weren’t too optimistic about the fishing but the conditions couldn’t have been better.
Water clarity appeared good and we all tried a mixture of lures, baited hokkais and bait. Nothing took the lures but bait rigs and baited hokkais saw keepers for all of us. Jeff was straight into a fish early on shortly followed by Dave. It took me an age to get a bit but had a little flurry in the last hour.
We had a mixture of cod and pouting with Dave getting the best cod of 4lb+.
A beautiful morning to be out. Shattered now though! Here are some pics:

Cannot wait until the next session. Spring definitely felt like it had properly arrived today.
