Is that what you mainly go for, what's it like for fish around there?
Plenty of mackys, cod, gurnard, the odd herring. Mainly mackerel which is just as well as they're all I'm good at & I like 'em.

Well that was worth getting up at daft o'clock for. As we came over the top of Sleights hill, we could see the rollers coming into the bay at Whitby. Called into the marina office & was greeted with a friendly "you're not going out are you?" Had a walk down to the end of the harbour & thought "No I feckin ain't!" Coffee & a bun later, it was back to Pikey towers. It was blowing a good F6 from the north, the forecast was for F4. Si stuck his nose out of the harbour & reported 2-3m waves in the bay. Ah well, next time eh?
It was nice to meet up with Simon & his gang, hopefully we'll have better luck on the Anglesey jolly.

Ey, it was sure worse than the forecast, did debate on going out as I saw the size of the sea but big gonads and off we went into the ebbiss
Recon we did no more that 2 miles and some of them must have been 4m peak to trough
Good fun but on the limit of practicallity really and not something I would wish for come Angelsey.
Good to meet Dave and his wife and hope he gets his boat wet next time

shame you lads couldent get out owing to the weather ,

Thats problem at Whitby is even though its on the East coast the harbour entrance is facing North and theres just about no landfall between that and the North pole , so even on a decent day you can have rollers coming down the North if theres been a storm up there a few days previous .

Best in harbour wishing you were out at sea than been out at sea wishing you were back in harbour ,,,,, my wife will second that she had 2 reletives drowned when the lifeboat capsized there many years ago ,

Bang on Marty Today was a case of discretion being the better part of valour. Cowards live to fight another day.
