Last weekend Hamish Currie and a band of specimen hunters travelled 22 miles north of Red Bay into another deep water trench looking for congers and skate and the other usual suspects. Conditions were perfect and within 1 hour the gear was shot and wasn’t too long before the goods were coming up. Plenty of strap congers to 20lb and a total of 5 skate, some very small (nice to see), best being 124lbs taken by Allan Cromie.

Another good day over the weekend saw us heading way out to the back off Rathlin into very deep water chasing the skate and congers. The best was a 176lb skate caught by Robert McFarland. This fine skate wins Catch of the Week. Spurdogs and some nice conger also featured. All in total 37 fish were landed and one really big fish lost after a 90 min battle.

The weather improved just enough on Saturday to allow one of my specimen clubs an offshore trip. We had over 40 fish, best for George Leslie - a skate of 150lb which wins him Catch of the Week.
