Well Done Joshua - thanks for sending Tom!!

Barry Roberts also sent this report last week:
'Just finished a great few days fishing with my dad with a great mixture of fish including dogfish, pout and whiting on the first night. Then yesterday dad caught a 35cm sole and a 29cm dab amongst the whiting before the wind got up too much. And then today up the point we had a few dabs up to 28cm in with the whiting and 1 small plaice and then to top it off I had this turbot, which was only 30 cm but was a first for either one of us so it was a nice end to my dad's trip' Thanks Barry, keep the catch reports coming!

On 31st October Matt Boyce contacted us saying
