2017 has been a good year for Optimist we have put the Anglers on the fish on every trip. The Wrecks have been a bit hit and miss during the year with some good catches of Pollack when we have managed to hit a wreck that has not been commercially netted the day before, Pout as usual have been very prolific, it is just convincing you anglers that a large Pout is if gutted when caught is not a bad fish to eat and they can put up a reasonable fight.
The Skerries bank as always has fished consistently throughout the year with reasonable quantities of Plaice although this year there were very few above the 2lb mark and a lot of undersized returned for another day. The banks still throw up surprises and we have had some good sized Turbot and Brill and Ray as well as the unexpected.
Our biggest problem this year has been fresh Mackerel as they didn't arrive until mid July and then it was a case of not on the usual marks except for one day in August where we sat on the mooring and nearly filled a box, which meant we could freeze some down for future use.
Also during the year we have become a recognised Elasmobranch tagger recording data for the SSACN, practising a catch and release program with Sharks, Rays, Huss and Hounds, this has so far proved very successful and we hope to build on this in 2018.
Optimist tries to live up to its name and with bookings for 2018 already starting to fill up we look forward to welcoming you aboard just call Nigel on 07817136505
