Ladye Bay 27-08-16

With Lug, Rag, Squid and Crab
in the bait bucket,
I risked the M5 traffic
to head for Clevedon.
I arrived at my chosen swim
at 08.45.
As can be seen about 20 mtrs of
rocks and weed and then sand.
Usual rigs were used.
From the first cast till the last cast
the little fish were a pain.
Nibbling the hooks clean.
The high water was at 15.30
and 10.4 mtrs.
It was overcast with a northerly breeze and 
a single light shower.
Thankfully I didn't get hit by one of those thunder storms,
that passed east of Bristol
With actual fish staying on the hook
few and far between,
I was none to pleased
when these two fishing boats
passed less than 200 mtrs out.
You'd think they would have steared
clear of fisherman on the coast.
In the end I had 
1 x Whiting, 2 x Codling
and this
All taking ragworm.
There were five other fishermen
who all had the same result,
except one lucky fisherman who managed
to reel in a 7 inch Smothound.
I packed up at high water, looking forward to my next
fishing trip.
