RICK HAWKINS age 52 landed four plaice including two six pounders while drift fishing aboard Flamer IV.  Rick first broke his personal best with a 6lb Plaice then he broke his PB again with a 6lb 2oz Plaice.  It is some achievement to catch two 6 pound Plaice in one session.  Rick was using 8lb class tackle with a single hook trace with attractor beads on and a small silver blade.  The successful bait was ragworm, Ammo black lug and squid strip.
