I had high hopes for catching my first BIG ray, during a week away in Tenerife. I’ve managed to pick up on the location and method that regularly produces Butterfly and Sting Rays to over 200lbs from a local shore mark.
But as ever, taking fishing time for granted during a family holiday isn’t always guaranteed, and this week proved that, so the best i could manage was an hour or two catching colourful little parrot wrasse from the rocks in front our hotel. Suicidal little things which launch themselves at anything on a size 16 hook. Fun for a while but not what I had in mind when packing my telescopic beach caster and reel loaded with 80lb braid.
Always theres always the next time……..
