Yacht club 26-03-09

The high tide was at 19.20 so headed down there for 16.00.
Well what a surprise when I got there! An orange bouy
had been placed in front of or usual spot.
This means that this spot can not be fished at low tide,
no Sole fishing in the summer. ooh pooh!
So using short casts Russell and I started fishing around 17.00.
We used the usual baits and rigs.

This bulk carrier carrying coal had 5 tugs helping it
going into Portbury Dock.
The wind was so strong up channel that the waves were
going faster than the ship!

Any way I managed this little Codling.
The problem was sea weed????!!!!
Ouch! There were large rafts of it and by High tide Russell had lost two rigs
and our rigs were not in the water for more than 5 minutes with out being
dragged into rocks to our right!
So at the top of the tide we packed up and went home.
Catch this year: 7 Whiting, 25 Codling, 1 pouting, 1 Thornback Ray and 1 Crab.
