This amazes me.
I made a comment on SeaLine about 42&10 and 44&08 in summer with 5 square miles around each of those marks and you would be smiling.

Now Monday we were in that area and we did ok. Got onto the fish late but from a recreational point of view we did very well.

3 days later, early Friday morning (can't count Friday as day 4 as it hasn't happened yet) and the fish is there but not in any numbers. We go plenty sterntrawlers (my favourite African / Queen) and nothing.

So maybe I need to rethink my piece of advice about those numbers. On any given day at this time of year I would run to the abovementioned numbers. BUT... it seams the fish are right back in the west where they were in late April to June.

Odd odd odd. The sea- one big mystery!
