Fish 4, Fisherman 0!

Went out last night in my boat with dad to again try for some Fingermark. We left about 3pm and spent a while filling up on live bait. We tried a well known mark at West Point, and with nothing happening we decided to head to a wider mark before the hoards arrived. We arrived and Dads first bait down was taken by a nice Cod, but then it went very quiet. Lots of bait around, but nothing happening. Then, just before sunset, we got a small run of fish. Both Dad and I managed 2 big hits each, but all 4 fish managed to brick us on the 50lb gear. Then Dad managed to pull one to the boat, but it turned out to be a big Cod, probably 15-20lbs. We tried numerous marks on the way home, but no luck!
