Sunderland fishing 12/04/09

Hi guys sorry for the tardy report, I have been rushed of my feet and only managed to get out once.
I took my Step Dad out and it was my first outing of the year. Catch reports were poor but the weather was great so off we went.
We drifted several patches of rough ground to no avail, and so felling confident with the weather we went to a wreck about 1.5 miles off. This was the first time I had tried this and it was a great feeling putting the boat on a drift over and seeing the hull on the finder and logging points on the plotter.
My Dad was losing enthusiasm when he had a double shot on prawn baited hokeyes, the bigger going a tad under 4lb.
We both started concentrating and after a few more succesful drifts we had several pout and a couple more codling, the best one of mine going 5lb 2oz (despite being the same length as the 4lb fish, but much broader)
We drifted another wreck and a reef on the way back in picking up the odd fish. It was a good day, nice and sunny with quite a few fish, but I think it will get better.
My fish is the heaviest I have weighed on the boat so I will be claiming that as the boat record I think!

The cod are just coming back in here, and we get them all through the summer up here (North East).
Here are some pictures of my boat last year...

...and here are some pictures of it on its first voyage this year. The trailer is what I carry it around on and is a removable flat top bolted to a box trailer. There is a ramp underneath that my transom wheels roll up.
The wooden thing is my "work station" to keep my GPS and fishfinder out of the worst of the weather. I also have a 4 way lighter socket and a nav light on it along with my compass and a fish measure.

I should also add that the "workstation" is what I was asking for advice about on here in my post "console".

Nice one, Geoff.

New boat record.....cant' be bad. :-)



Rather hoping to get out myself this weekend. Coincidentally, I'm just putting the finishing touches to a console extension of my own. Went and got a new DSC VHF and aerial for our offshore forays and had to find somewhere to mount it. Keep you posted.
