Out for a run

Recommended Posts

Taken JoJo away on our early summer family holiday as usual. Change if scenery this year (9 yrs in Dartmouth), we have tried Mylor near Falmouth.

 

This is the spot I have launched for autumn sharking several times, what better place to stay than in the marina! Not my idea, Jo's! Didn't hear me arguing!

 

Nice to see the JoJo from the property! She has not been out since October and that was down here.

 

Yesterday the 4 of us headed out late evening to St Anthony Light house on the entrance to Falmouth and St Mawes for a cruise.

 

Charlotte then piloted us back in, all the way until the final docking.

 

 

 

Hopefully some catch reports will be forth coming!

So popped out for a couple of hours with the kids as company. Quick call to Charlie Chapman's charter skipper friend and he put is on to a location.

"You will be plagued with rays, dogfish and bullhuss" perfect I thought,just what the kids want.

5 mins in and thornie, 5 mins another happy days. As I am typing this we have missed another. Just what they needed to keep interest!

Thanks Charlie.

Hi Jerry

 

My mate used to own specialised charters and crew on the Anglo Dawn. Last winter he bought the boat and runs it, I believe from Falmouth.

 

Have been considering getting a few lads together and going down for the weekend after the sharks at the end of Summer

Andy had said that mackerel and blues were few and far between.

 

Blues were seen well offshore (more than the 10/12 I like to take 15ft JoJo.

 

But hey, you have to be in it to win it!

Today Charlie. Prob 70lb to be conservative, they are easy to over estimate as are so lean. Wasn’t brining it onboard as usual for a measure with only
Livvy to assist.

We had seen a small one prob 30lb, which we waited for but this one just hung around the stern and the smaller of the two vanished. So I took the honours, Livvy could hardly hold the rod up!

I even hand fed it the trace, it was 3 ft off the rubby sack, I lowered the bait, we both saw it eat it. I pulled the trace and set the hook just on the edge of the jaws, perfect.

After a few runs, I got her head the side of the boat to release.

No more seen so we came in at 5:30, having only gone out at 1:00. Shame for her but better we had one than none.

Yes, the shots are from her videoing!

She was just as chuffed having a few run-ins with dolphins!

We also found this floating on our wayout. prob gone 30lb+ as the head must have been 15/20! Enormous mouth Seemed the stomach had enough air in it to keep it afloat.

Superb sport mate.

They might not be as prestigious as a porgie, but they don't half go on 20lb class gear and 30lb braid!

I did break out the porgie rod with just livvy onboard, as I wanted the upper-hand from the off.
