    Most pictures show small Children with nice big fish. This one has my 6 ft 5 son Dan with the smallest conger I have ever seen, perfect miniature and still a bit feisty. LOL

    Not compared to where you go on holiday, its about 15 miles from entrance I bet that groundbait would sure help

    Thanks Steve Brand new 300m of 50 braid only loaded Friday so I knew I had room to play, but a 6/0 uptide hook is OK for Tope but not that big boy. If we get out there again may go up to stronger hooks or big circles

    Saturday started well enough with three boats heading for wrecks 20 miles out, bait fishing went well in Swanage so off we go, trouble was it was a little breezy and the water was a bit coloured and nobody had a single fish. Dave and I decided to anchor the deep gulley, I believe Dave and Mick struggled for bites but we seemed to get a few Started with some Huss, best 9lb to Ian, then some Tope best 28lb to me. We were just about to move to try and anchor a wreck and Dave was pulling his anchor to come over when I had another close encounter with the Poole Bay Monster on my tope rig. looking down I could see colour and thought it looked odd, then I realised a F~~~~ng big Porgie was swimming straight at the boat, she hovered alongside for a little while as I barked all sorts of instructions at my poor crew to fetch a camera wind up the lines etc etc, then she decided that she didn't like sunlight and set off for Portland. By the time 200 metres of braid was off the reel I decided to up the drag, but all that did was straighten a 6/0 hook. I then got a bit focused an another go with some bigger hooks, so had to tell Dave I was staying put. we carried on catching plenty of Tope but the big fish did not return Sorry if I messed up your plan Dave, but it was a very big Porgie, at least 8 feet long and I got a bit excited

    I have decided not to take Alfresco to Cherbourg this weekend due to the forecast on Sunday and to give my crew chance to cancel accommodation and not lose deposits. Ian Alan and I will be out wrecking on Saturday with a decision to be made later, about what we do on Sunday. My favourite competition so tight lines all
