Got out for a good long session with a mate yesterday by making the most of a window of opportunity. The weather couldn't have been any better for this time of year. We were sheltered from the wind and the sun was shining. It started cold but got gradually milder, would have though it was a balmy autumn day at one stage.
First 3 hours never saw a fish, but, come dusk, and it was like a light switch had been turned on. Double shots here and there: coley, flounder and whiting. My mate was chuffed too with his first turbot.
But the little burst of activity didn't last long, maybe 45minutes. Nor were the fish big, but it was fun catching them. And so, just as the switch had been turned on, it was turned straight back off again. I stood for a further 3 hours into darkness without as much as a nibble, again..
We cleared off 10minutes after high tide, about 9pm, and before the forecast heavy winds set in.
Nice to have seen and chatted to plenty of anglers who came and went throughout the course of the day. Plenty of people out walking and working off the xmas dinner too.
Have some rag leftover. Now wondering if those strong winds have churned the shore up..
