Quality and another good fish this year 2011 to add to my catch list. Captured on the Shables bank off Weymouth Dorset using a makerel fillet on a 6/0 Aberdeen hook and a standad sliding ledger. Great day in April on board the Rapid Fisher out of Poole Quay.
Boat is a fast cat that got us on the bank in less than 60 minutes after some feathering for fresh mackerel we started the drift and bang I was into this fish, gave a good account of itself but it was soon safely in the net and cool box. Only just finished eating it and was that good.
Three good turbot that day all in double figures and all on mackerel fillet. I am going to add a movie in the How to Fish page showing how I fillet the mackerel and attach it to the hook so it flutters naturally in the tides.
