Short session down Rockingham 05-11-14

A free evening saw me take Squid
Rag and Lug
to fish and watch some fire works.
With high water at 6 pm
my first cast was at 4 pm.
First cast produced a very dark Codling
which took the Rag and was just under the legal limit.
As the tide was still some distance from the
bank, I put it in a pool so it would stay alive.
I then noticed the other rod had signs of interest'
Sure enough a normal coloured Codling
had taken the Lug baited rig.
This photo shows the different
colours of the two Codling
Well for the next 2 hours there was a steady
flow of Codling coming in.
In the end I packed up at 6.30
having used up 1/4ld of Rag and 1/4ld
of Lug, as well as 3 whole Squid
and had nothing else to use.
I was using 4/0 Pennel Pulley rigs.
High water 13.5mtrs a 6pm
and came well over the top.
Because the wind was light
north westerly and high pressure I 
felt it was safe to fish there.
If however the wind was strong west 
to south west,
I would fished else where.

Ladye Bay 31-10-14

Down to the ledges to test my ankle out
on hard rough ground ,
as well as deeper water.

High water was at  12.02 
and 10.8 mtrs .
Bait taken was rag and Squid
with two 4/0 hooked pennel pulley rigged rods.
Getting there just before 7.30
I did not have to climb down 
as the tide was already over the reef.
So two casts produced two birdies.
 Well a few minutes of fiddling and 
one was back out and sitting nicely without any bouncing in the tide.
Second one needed complete respooling.
This done a couple of practice casts settled the line down
and a whole Squid was out calling anything out there
to breakfast.
The rag rod produced a Pouting, 
which I kept and used later as bait.
The Squid produced a Codling of about
8 inches which was returned.
As the tide got higher the bites and rattles 
were less frequent.
By now there were around 12 other anglers
all having the same result as me.
The person on my left who had a 
lighter setup to mine, manged 4 small
Codling and Doggies (Cat sharks).

Well I eventually had a small Dogie
on Squid and Pouting fillet.
By now the tide was on the turn
and as there was no other interest,
I packed up and headed home.
One good thing was that I had no problem
with my ankle,
and managed my first run
for 16 weeks
again with out any trouble.
So back to normal.
Might be on the Avon tomorrow
if all's good on the home front.
