Hard night but not a blank

Only one fish but happy to avoid the blank with a scorpion fish long spined. They love ecogear aquagear bream prawns

This one vomited a wee sand eel

Species is the name of the game

Last nights light rock fish session seen a huge variety of species from the ole faithful pollock in large numbers, gold sinny wrasse, herring, long spined & short spine scorpion fish (both really large for our area.) smelt, pouting, goby, blennie & tompot blennies.
The herring was a first for me on lures. Although between three of us fishing well over 60 were landed and safely returned only scented baits seemed to be working from the ecogear & power isome corner and a good few brought in by berkleys one inch minnows ( only seem to be able to obtain these from the USA) provided by Mark Powers another hard core all year round finesse Angler.I really enjoy Marks enthusiasm for the sport he will always be testing out some of his own ideas with great success. Matt Newcome was putting his new Nories slow retrieve through its paces and is very pleased with the most expensive rod he has ever purchased ( good job) me I was playing with some Sunline fluro 2.5 lb. Straight through. Verdict… I like it alot. Although I don’t tend to photograph many fish these days I feel the need to photograph one of the scorpion fish although it’s size is not apparent in the image the other image is of a herring.
