After blanking the beach comp I was at this afternoon, I got out with the leftover bait to fish the night tide at a spot I've only fished once or twice with no luck. It wasn't long before I had a knock, reeled in a 32cm flounder taken on the ragworm, my new PB. Now I did try and return the fish but I think the hook damaged the gills as he wasn't recovering after 20 minutes of trying so I took him for the table. Another 30 minutes go by and I get a another bite, a lovely bass of 38cm again on the ragworm, after a quick pic with the card for species hunt he went back. It got quiet for a few hours but about an hour after high tide my rod bent right over and I was onto another bass, taken on the peeler crab, this one came in at 45cm so was big enough to keep and is my new PB.
