Well, I’m pleased to say the the little box of horrors was not required. 4 fish were taken on small Copper John, GHRE and PTNs. Fishing was far from easy with a blustery Nor’ Wester making casting extremely difficult but an early success gave me the confidence that fish could be had.
What really surprised me was the quality of the fish. Fit, fully finned with large undamaged tails, each one fought like a Trojan before being brought to the net.
All in all, a fun day out.
