Myself and my uncle decided to hit Laytown beach today, weed was absolutely horrendous! Spent most of the time picking weed off the lines. We got rained on too. I waided too deep in my wellies and got a bootfull of soup. I had one good bite but she dropped off. So not the best fishing session but still had a good laugh.

A boot of soup! Must be up there with weeds, hungry crabs and a blank. I got a pair of Magreel chest waders on Amazon for about 30 odd quid and they have been great, would defo recommend them.

Ah yeah I have a good pair of waders but they're not breathable, and the sun was splitting down before I left so I decided against them today

That bit of East wind churned up the water, the weed is usually still there along the north county beahes for a few days afterwards.
When it's bad like that, one way of fishing through it is keep the rod in your hands and hold it up clear of the weed , waders help as most of the weed is in the first 10 metres of the surf..
