Plenty still left in Lyme Bay
Launched out of Teignmouth in Sept Oct Nov and early Dec, and always had plenty of Mackerel.
Would normally go out over the wrecks, which were sometimes hit and miss for the bass and pollack, (although always loads of pouting, yeuchhh)
and then spend the last 1/2 hour close (ish) to shore, and we were always able to pick up plenty, sometimes full house on the feathers was common.
Only by about mid Dec had they all buggered off.
Mind you the biggest problem I found was trying to locate the wrecks in the 1st place.
Tried looking on the internet, and the dive sites didnt always give the best Lat Long, and fishing websites dont give out any details either, not unrealistically! we spent ages motoring around looking with the sounder!
Then came across an app for the Iphone, called Wreckfinder, It is brillant, best 3.99 i ever paid.
It gives the lat long for 10,000 wrecks around the UK, and also gives depth, size of vessel, cargo and when sunk, and history of the vessel, where known. The lat Long is smack on, motor over to the co ordinates, and you are bang on the wreck.
As soon as I got that sorted, started catching bass, lovely size fish, just fantastic for a meal for a hungry couple of fish lovers! Also some good pollack as well.
Anyway we had a great few months before the weather got a bit too choppy.
Roll on April when I will be home next!
