When I got to the mark there were two guys fishing it so I set up on an adjacent rock out of their way, no problem. But half an hour into the session I heard one of them having an almighty crack-off (I tried not to laugh ), and 5 minutes later they were gone.
I looked over and saw a familiar unpleasant sight - a lot of rubbish and sh1ye left laying at their ar5es So I headed over to have a look, with the intention of probably tidying it up a bit.
Once I got there I found quite a lot of stuff abandoned. Apart from the usual plastic bags, bait bags and bottles etc, I found: a rod and reel, fresh bait, gloves, hooks, and.. wait pmfor it... 2 wee bags of d0pe! I was quite pleased with my new found 'gifts', so I cleaned up their mess and took everything else.
I fished the top of the tide to the bottom, right up and into dark, but had meagre results; no cod appeared.
The two rods at distance only produced a few doggies (and quite a lot of edible crabs) but the most fun was had in close I guess - lrf fishing with my newly acquired rod and reel I caught a LOT of small coley, pollack and dab with it.
Was happy with a new 13.5' rod that I recently purchased (have never owned a beachcaster in my life) and I was well chuffed with the performance of my smaller 11' 'flattie' rod that I actually managed to repair! - after it snapped in two (3) just above the butt upon casting recently. It's a little heavier than before but it was 100%
A lot of guys out on the shore yesterday, what with the settled mild weather. Think most were having similar results(?).

Still a rod and reel etc is a nice reward for clearing up other people's crap and they'll hardly claim them back from th nearest police station along with their gear. What sort of beachcaster did you get? Always good to get a few fish.
