River Frome, Frenchay

This was the seen that greeted me down on the river Frome.
Leaves all over the place.
But look at the colour of trees.

I fished under the the over hanging tree
on the left.
Worms, maggots, caster and sweetcorn were the
baits used.
I fished 7 meters on the pole but only had half a dozen
bites which produced 2 Minnows.
The leaves caused many problems and in the end
I gave up after 3 hours.

Rockingham 21-10-10

Fished the grass bank from 17.15 till 20.00.
First cast out with the the wish bone rig produced a 37cm
codling on lug bait.
Woo Hoo good start can it continue?
The tide was 12.5mtrs at 19.09.
Rigs used were the wish bone rig
and a Pulley Rig with 3/0 Pennell hooks.
Baits used were lug / rag and squid.
Well yes the fish kept comeing!
I managed 4 more keepers
Russell (my son) who was also fishing with me
also caught 4 codling and a flounder.
However he did have to borrow one of my wishbone rigs
to catch most of his fish.

What a great evening, as Russell said
"It's just like the good old days"

"Good fishing, good company, good weather"
What can you want?

New mark :- the pipes 10-10-10

Fished a new venue today.
A 10 minute walk along from the Severn Beach
there is a spot that is the same as fishing Rockingham,
except that this is whats in front of you instead of mud!
The mud starts further out.

As can be seen from this photo (looking towards Severn Beach)
its just beyond the grass bank.

This time I used the pulley rig on one rod with whole squid
and a Wishbone rig with rag and lug on the other
15 minutes before the top of the tide and the first bite
of the day produced this Codling on the lug baited wishbone.
At the top of the tide, 09.30, a nice plump flounder found
the rag baited wishbone hook.
This under sized flounder came to the lug/rag baited
wishbone rig and was returned alive, 10 minutes later.

No more bites were seen and I packed up around 10.30.

Cottage, Portishead 09-10-10

Fished the ledge by the Cottage from 06.15 till 10.30.
It was a 14.2mtr at 08.51.
To cut a long story short "BLANKED"

This photo shows the tide at its highest
If there was a westerly wind behind the tide I'd have been in trouble!!!

As can be seen it was a dull day with an north easterly wind.
This car transporter is heading for Portbury Docks

I was using Pennell Pulley rigs with size 3/0 hooks.
Baits used were Lug, Rag and Squid.

At the top of the tide there was a lot of floating bladder weed
which caused me to loss three rigs. AAARRRGGG.
