Where: Portrane Beach
High Water: 22:24
Equipment: 12ft beachcaster - 2/0 two hook flapper rigs with beads/attractors & 5oz grip lead. & 11ft bass rod - self made rig, 2 hook paternoster with 3/0 circle hooks, green & black beads and some attractors. Bite detection bell/lights.
Conditions: A bit chilly with some wind from the north, a tiny bit of surf which died down a bit as the night went on.
Result: 1 small flounder and a dab??
So with the good weather the last few days I'd been having trouble getting to a decent mark that wasn't swamped with people, so with today being overcast and a lot cooler than recent days I decided to go dig some rag at low tide. I got to my mark at about 8pm. Nothing for the first hour or so and then bang I get a hit on the 11ft bass rod, now this flatfish didn't look like other flounders I've caught, which I thought it was at first but looking back at the picture I'm thinking it might of been a dab? maybe someone wiser could confirm this from the pic? This fish was also the first fish I've caught on a rig I've made myself which I'm really happy about but anyway he was nicely size but not nicely sized enough so he was released
not too long after that I caught the tiniest little flounder on my other rod. This fish was unbelievably small, maybe just a little bit longer than the hook it tried to eat
I then fished the next 2-3 hours without a single bite, such is life.
