PostSubject: I HADDOCK YOU NOT    Mon Jun 18, 2012 7:50 am

Both Merit 1 and kirsty 111 were up for an improptu comp today and it was decided that it would be for the heaviest haddock with cod as a back up fish. both boats met at the battery pier at 11.15 and quickly decided that simon reed would guest crew onboard K3 as Merit had 5 crew to start with.

Both boats went straight to the back of Douglas Head for both Mackie and Launce as several other marks were visited on our way to our final mark of the day the haddock grounds. Both cod and pollack were taken at castletown,but there was no great record breakers amonst them.

K3 decided they would move on to the cod mark 3miles out of Port St Mary and try their luck there for a fish for tea,but today there was no joy. Merit 1 however went on down to fish the Wart bank mark in search of a few Flatties whilst K3
headed out to the outer haddock mark.

Several species were taken here including Red Gurnard, Cod ,Whiting , Dab, Dog Fish and of course the only 2 Haddock of the day on K3 went to Skip Emmo so making me loose another £(back to 6 again). Merit 1 however had the upper hand however when we got back to dry land with their haddock out wieghing ours by 4ozs.

A couple of incidents did take place today however when 4 YES 4 anglers ended up tangled together, 2 from Merit and 2 from K3 had a right coming together of which i did get a piccy or two.the other was trhat despite changing his propeller again this morning skip Emmo had to concede that merit 1 now up and running true was showing him a clean pair of heels.

In all k3 did manage a total of 11 species today which with the 3 day festival looming down on us in 3 weeks time is starting to look good.

A few pics of the day

A few more pics of today

It was a little bit lively around Langness :

Spot the Ball is so old hat, we were playing spot Kirsty III today (clue - you may just about see her in the distance) :



Scummer fought and landed this lump of weed :



Another good day out was had by all, although one skipper does appear to have short arms and deep pockets when it comes to paying up Wink

As a footnote I think we also had 11 species, although slightly different to yours :

cod, haddock, ling, calig, whiting, dogfish, cuckoo, ballan, dabs, mackerel, launce.

Oh and 4 Octopus Mad

We didn't have a gurnard and did I see Emmo landing a poor cod ? So possibly 13 species between the 2 boats without really trying.
