People: me and the mutt

Duration: 12.00- 17.30

Tide: HW LW HW
10:24 16:30 22:52

Weather: sunny for an hour then it bucketed down..thunder lighting etc etc ...slight westerly breeze

Bait: Rag, Squid , Sand eel

Rigs: 3 hook flappers, Pennel pulley , Wishbone

Results: 2 Pollock around 2lbs , 2 doggies .. and something that bit through my hook snood

Saw this mark in the shore marks section decided to give it a go .... . not an easy mark to get to ,the path down to it is steep to say the least.. and with 2 rods, a rod rest ... and an 80 litre rucksack... it was tough going down ..never mind going back up :)
This is definitely a rough ground mark.. but there is a patch of clean ground about 40 yards out ( you can see the sandy bottom from the top of the path) This is the only place to fish ... every where else is a nightmare . I think I lost 6 rigs in total plus weights .... the fishing was slow , doggies fell to sand eel squid wrap and the Pollock to rag tipped with squid... The pennel pulley rig had a whole squid on it ...something hit it hard then was gone and so was my rig . :( I'll get the bugger next time ..

There's photos of this mark in my album
