Recreational Fishing Trip 16th June.

     Phil went out of poole to go drift fishing between Bournemouth and Boscombe Piers where a number of small Plaice were caught.  Then we headed out to a six-mile mark where a number of species were caught including tope, rays, plaice and a nice smoothhound weighing in at 14lbs plus caught by Steve Pitman.
