greedy little pin Whiting had a go at the sausage.

I had plenty of time to take a few photos

but nothing was worth taking.

Yatch Club Portishead

This venue is a good spot when there are
large tides or strong winds.
The photos below are looking towards the Yacht Club and Lifeboat station.
High tide.
Mid tide.Below are photos looking east.
High tide.

Mid tide. This is a spot where long casting is best,

as between 40 - 60yrds there is a large area of rough ground.

It is also a good low tide mark but very muddy.
Beware of the fast rising tides. Don't get cut off.

My Conger of around 8lds was caught today 02-09-08

Baits used were Rag worm, Mackeral, Squid and Sandeel.
