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.
