I headed down to Passage for a session today with hounds on my mind. A few have been caught around the estuary so I thought why not?
A few lads beside me were getting dogs as I arrived, then gave me a few rag which is a good bait for this mark, greatly appreciated. Nothing doing for half an hour until I check my bait to find a flounder on the 3/0 pulley pennel baited with crab, savage! A couple of casts later I check my bait to feel a dead weight which produced a doggie, my first. Nothing happened for the rest of the session but the lads beside me landed a hound of 6lb, on mackerel and rag, which was a big middle finger to my freshly bought crab I had got just for the hounds
Passage isn't a hound mark really but it's down the road from me so it's handy enough.
I'll be back there tomorrow, I ain't giving up yet!
