On another slow day, at least it was our turn to catch a big fish. This 950lb-er for our lucky angler Tony just after lunch. After a spectacular bite where she missed the bait on the first go, she came back to try again and launched herself out of the water. But that was it for the show. Surprised to find herself hooked up, the best she did was to get her shoulders out of the water for a massive head shake or two. Another bite soon followed but we failed to hook up and that was our day. Reports from elsewhere were of slow days all round with little fish caught. At least the weather is good for the next few days.
