Bream and wrasse for Honiton anglers

Honiton Sea Angling Club members Mike Spiller and James Trevett had some cracking fish on a day trip from Lyme Regis.
Spiller and Trevett fished from their own small boat in Lyme Bay.
Conditions were good for the catch-and-release day ahead, with plenty of different and colourful species caught during the day.
Nice to see was the first black bream of the season with Trevett landing a fish of 3lb 5oz.
Spiller also got in on the act by landing a stunning cuckoo wrasse of 1lb 4oz.

The pair managed at the end of the day to find a few plaice with the best weighing in around 2lb.
Members of the Honiton club are noticing a huge difference now in catches around this part of the coast, mainly due to the area belonging to the Lyme Bay Protected Reserve.
