The past week or so has seen regular reports of plaice being caught from local beaches, mainly during the day, but some at night, alongside flounder, dabs and the occasional bass. Then over the past week several anglers have reported a number of night time catches of thornback rays  - great to see these again this year. Then last weekend a local angler caught two thornback rays from a local beach during daylight, while another angler caught a fantastic 9lb+ ray - full details below.
