Have a charter trip booked for this Sat out of Paington or Brixham (depends if skipper has sorted his moorings)

We have the chance to go out wrecking or fish the Skerries

Wrecking is the preferred option if there are now fish showing in numbers

Anyone been to the mid channel wrecks recently? 

Will ring skipper later, just looking for any other opinions

Tides are massive this weekend, didn't think the Skerries fish that well for plaice on the big tides. If he will go the distance i would favour the wrecks but it will be quick drifts.

I personally don't like big springs on the skerries, the plaice will need a motorbike to keep up with the bait !

Alan (mate with an Offshore 25) went out to the 25 -30 mile wrecks 2 weeks ago on spring tides and found Pollock to 14lb and Cod to 9lb. The fish were taking dark lures instead of the usual Blue / Whites.

Spoke to shaun last night and he didn't do so well on the closer wrecks yesterday, but had plenty on the 30+ mile wrecks on weds 

Is it worth taking the slow jigs for around slack ?

Yes, take slow jigs.

In lymebay you can fish jigs for most of the tide, even on springs. Take heavy jigs and fish a minimum of 1g per foot of water. On the 200ft wrecks I would fish 250g and PE1 braid (20 -  25lb).
