Baltic Wharf 29-04-10

Fished at Baltic Wharf in Bristol Docks.
Picked a spot between pegs 9 and 10,
on the eastern end of the wharf.
I started at 08.00 and fished till 12.00.
Baits were the usual maggots and caster
over Beet, Gros Gordens ground bait and brown
crumb. Also loose fed part mix seed.
At 61/2 mtrs I loose fed maggot, caster and seed.
1/2 a pouch of each every 3 or 4 minutes.
At 9 mtrs I put in 6 orange size balls of the ground bait
and loose fed 1/2 pouch of the maggots, caster and seed.
First fish of the day was a small Perch on the 61/2mtr line.
Then a few more roach and perch.
After an hour I tried over the 9mtr line and caught more
Perch and also some Dace.
Then the float slowly pulled under and on stricking
I felt a better wait! After a short but sprightly fight
a Skimmer Bream of around 2 1/2ld was in the net.
Bigger fish in the middle.
Back to the inside line,
and the small roach and perch kept coming.
Then the float shot under and the elastic shot out,
a 5 minute struggle a beautiful Roach of around 2 to 2 1/2 ld
was in the net. What a lovely fish.
Probably my favorite fish.
With the bites slowing up I packed up and headed for home.
Roll on the next week for an other go.
Total was 26 fish for around 6 to 7 pounds.
(Note to self)
Must get a good pair of scales?!!!!!
