Pre Christmas fishing trip

Went to a spot near Rockingham yesterday evening,
I arrived just after the rain cleared and
managed a dry chilly session.

I met up with Brad from Bristol Angling Centre
and started fishing at 4pm.
High tide was at 6pm and we fished till 7.30pm.

Lug Rag and Squid were the baits used.

I had a Rockling at high tide at the same time as
Brad managed a nice Codling. No bites were
had on the flood tide.
No further bites were had on the ebb untill
the last cast was wound in.
This was lucky for me, as I had a Flounder and a 
Rockling on a Wishbone rig.

Another very good trip.

Rusty beats his Dad AGAIN. 09-12-11

Popped down to the grass bank again
to use up the left over bait from the last trip.
My family had bought me a new rod to replace the one I 
 Sunset over Portishead
 With Moon rise over Sea Bank power station.
 Usual rigs produced 3 Codling for and
2 Flounder for Rusty.
The top Codling weighed 2lb 10oz.
I managed to catch a small Codling and
a 2lber  christened my new rod.
Good fishing trip and good company.

Yacht Club Portishead 07-11-11

Birthday treat to myself
Low tide down the slipway.
Low was at 11.00, so arrived at 07.00.
Lug, Rag and Squid were the baits used.
Clear blue sky, cool and VERY blustery.
Pulley rigs were the order of the day 
with 3/0 and 4/0 hooks.
First fish of the day was a Whiting 
about the same size as the smaller one in the photo,
at around 8.40.
Weed then started to cause trouble
with large clumps pulling the weights around.
At low tide these two Whiting were landed on consecutive 
casts. Taking Lug / Rag cocktails.
Then as the tide picked up again 
the weed was once again a problem.
I started packing up around 12.45
Three more 4 inch Whiting were caught on
the last three casts of the session.
Not a bad day out.
Roll on Friday evening
for the next trip.
