We enjoyed a fabulous BBQ on board and to top off a good overnight stay, we woke up to blue skies, sunshine and sea as flat as a millpond. In the morning, I decided to put out a fishing line and much to my delight, I caught a 17lb Thornback ray. Pulling it up was like pulling up a dustbin lid - very hard going. In fact, at first, I thought I had caught 'Mother-Earth' n the form of a great big rock and I was fully expecting to have to cut the line. The Ray was caught on a mix of Bluey and Squid, if anyone wants to give it a go. The Ray was so big that we ended up having it for dinner on Sunday night and Monday night!
