Chesil Beach 18-12-16

Trundled down Weymouth way
Yesterday, arriving at 
Chesil  Bait and Tackle
at 12.00.
Jason and Hannah arrived 5 minutes later.
With a shed load of bait
we tootled down to the shingle
and were fishing by 13.00.
My first fish was this Coalie???
Yes a Coalie from the shore
a FIRST and a P.B. as well.
 It was a real learning curve for me.
Thanks to Jason's 
patience and advice I soon learnt
 the tricks to fishing this spot.
 Jason was surprised at the drop
from the top of the second shelf
to sea level.
It had changed drastically
since the week before.
The actual fishing slow,
however it was frantic compared
to the Severn Estuary / Bristol Channel. 

It was warm and overcast
wit out any wind.
The only sign of the sun
was at sunset.

 Other fish caught were
Pouting and Doggies.
 Baits used were
Squid, Mackerel, Hermit Crab
Frozen Black Lug and Rag
Pulley rigs were the order of the day.
We fished 4 hours down
and 3 up.
Wow what a cracking trip.
Luckily the fog was not 
as bad as forecasted.
So the journey down
and back were clear.
Roll on 31-12-16
for a family session down there.
