Uptiding at Minehead

Sunday saw Mike and myself heading out of Minehead for this month’s boat trip. As usual we both fished two uptide rods each, and were hoping for some decent numbers of smoothhound given the time of year.

The smoothhound just weren’t around in any numbers and we only had a few between us. I did catch a nice pair of small-eyed ray, whilst Mike caught a mid double figure blonde ray. The ray all came to either sandeel or herring. The usual hordes of dogfish were present as to be expected and I gave up counting after I’d had approaching 30 by myself.
