9th May - Darren Chapple is pictured (below left) with the biggest of the three Thornback ray he caught fishing Eastbourne last weekend, weighing 10lb 4oz, 9lb and 4lb 3oz.
Two were caught on Bluey and one on crab bait, and Darren also lost another ray which he thought was likely a mid double which took mackerel bait.
Well done Darren, great to see - thanks for sending!
It's also great to see that ray are also being caught off the beach in Pevensey Bay. Ricky Diamond (below right) reported that he fished Pevensey Bay on Sunday night and caught four rays, one of which was 2lb and another just under 3lb. Ricky used bluey bait with squid and krill goo on pulley rigs.
Thanks for sending Ricky - keep your catch reports coming please !!
