Poole April 2021

Poole report by Philip Higgins Thanks to some fine weather coinciding with neap tides we managed to push offshore, this proved very lucrative for Ian Napier who landed plenty of Spurdogs to 19lb, Rays, Congers and dogs which kept him busy all day and me running around unhooking fish.
