I've been hoping to take my mate Alex out in the Warrior for some time especially as I've had so many great days out in his boat-Samax.
Tiny 4.3m tide meant that another run west in search of blonde rays was on the cards but unfortunately today's fishing, wasn't a patch on what I experienced here in January.
Five rays came up and the fishing was quite slow but, Alex was over the moon with this brill-a first for my boat, of about 3 1/2 lb which took a smaller than usual mackerel fillet. we did try scaling down more baits but no more of these stunning looking flat fish turned up.
Still, a fine day to be out and Alex was more than complimentary about the boat.
