Fished from the middle of the beach, with 2 rods. A hectic nights fishing. within 2 minutes of the first rod being baited and cast I had a doggie on, this set the standard for the soon as a rod was baited and cast... fish on ... I was using 3 hook flappers but had to switch to single hooks , because i was reeling in 3 at a time !
Only dogfish ... nothing for the table ...but still a great nights fishing :)
