    [​IMG]Gone Fishin' 10 by wee_pete, on Flickr

    Had a bit of fun today out fishing. Shame the day was overcast, but fishing 25-30ft above the water let me take this shot. Fish were plentyful, but nothing of any real size. The walk back up the hill in the dark was a bummer, it's a steep, with a narrow, slippy muddy path round the marks so needed care with near sheer drops in places.

    That looks an ace location (apart from the off level horizon;)). What species were you getting there? That's more the kind of marks we have in my area. Just coming into Cod season too. I'll have to try and get out more this year.

    Great spot to fish from. How do you get the fish up there when you catch them.

    Nice shot, btw.

    Thanks Jeff, it's pretty cool, the steepness makes it look like you'll walk off the edge of the world but you can get down with care.

    Haha, good spot, I forgot to level it before I posted. It's a South West mark so wrasse: corkwings, ballans, goldsinney, rockcook even cuckoo wrasse about. Pollock, coalies, bullhuss, conger, tope, mackerel, cod, gurnard, rockling and dogfish are the main catches. Probably some rays about and the odd chance of haddock, herring and smoothound. One of the great things about fishing it is you'll be in with a chance of any species in out waters, so it really is a mixed bag full of possibility. We'll be heading up nearer your neck of the woods for the cod soon

    Thanks PJM, we use heavy rods, 12-14ft surfcasting rods that are pretty stiff so either you winch the fish up or handline it and hope the hook holds or find a way to climb down. there was a wee bit just to my left that I could get down to the water fairly easily but a few areas here you can only haul them up as it's a 40-50ft drop off. Not one for the feinthearted!

    No worries mate, I'm normally about with a few members of the club so I'll see what the plans are. A few of them were up that way last week for the turbot and one of the guys got a new club record

    On the old skyway bridge that's used for fishing a lot of people use "hoop nets" to lift the larger fish up. Nice pic and place to fish.

    Thanks Kirk, I think we'd call them drop nets. I do have one, but they are very seldom used in the UK and I really cut down all my gear for the walk back up the hill. I do enjoy fishing it, though I probably wouldn't walk round the lower path in the dark again, it was a wee bit too dangerous in a couple of places.
