Another quickie session today produced my best plaice of the year so far. Only fished for 3 hours due to the weather, but during that time it was very productive. The rig I used was a one-up one down invisible rig with size 6 hooks and fresh crab for bait. Unfortunately the majority of fish came in the form of double headers of whiting; not big ones either, most of them struggling to make 20cm. The day was saved though by this lovely plaice of 2lb 3oz and 40.5 cm. I had been keeping it in a bucket of sea-water and debating whether to release it or keep it for tea. In the end, a helpful persuasion from my mate Lee tipped the scales in favour of keeping it and home it went. A simple mix of breadcrumbs, chilli, parsley and spring onion to top the fillets and then a compliment of new potatoes and veg went down extremely well. Think I'm gonna have to catch a few more plaice of edible size. God they taste good!
