July has been a busy month aboard Dawn Tide II so far good weather and superb fishing !!
Start of july the mackerel finally turn up in numbers
this means we are able to go on the hunt for some bigger fish
Mackerel is one if the best baits in my opinion there isn’t much out there that wont take a live bait or fresh mackerel chunk / strip.
Last few weeks we have been live baiting mackerel and with great success! with bass to 10lb several around 7-5lb even the smaller bass around 2lb fish have been taking a live mackerel or a fresh chunk,
The Tope and skate also taking the mackerel baits as expected in the deeper water on the neap tides
The worm and crab working well in the shallows on the bigger tides for the hounds and school bass also been some sole coming out regular if you use the smaller hooks
this week the hound fishing has been very good its bit weedy but fish to 15lb with average stamp of 7-9lb giving a good scrap
Went offshore done a couple of tope trips last week biggest was 41lb lost a couple others during the fight can't be helped had few smaller ones aswell but that was by far the biggest.
There are has been massive shouls of small bass and mackerel close to home this has been a good stop on the way out or the way home and good fun around slack tides.
A reminder Always bring crab or worm this time of year for bass and hounds as you never know them mackerel can disappear over night thats the way it is!
