People:Me & Cortaz

Duration:4 hours

Tide:2 hours going & 2 hours rising

Weather:lovely for half the time and then cold . Strong SW winds

Bait:Lures & Jellies


Results: 3 bass each

Report: Decided to try for my first bass of the year. Can't believe that it is July and that I have no bass for all of the other months :!: :!:
Last year I had bass for every month of the year.

Headed out to try on banks and between banks.

First up was a bass to Cortaz's jelly lead head. :D :D Fish took lure on the drop near the boat and then went mental. I followed this with 2 bass on an X-rap. :D :D Then he had another on the jelly.

For the last hour of the drop there were no takes. Then we got one each as the tide turned. :D :D :D The terns an gannets were diving all over the place.

Cortaz missed 3 more and I missed one. :oops: :oops:

It suddenly got very cold and we decided to head for home. Overall a good night and hopefully a good start to a very late season.

All bass were around the 3lb mark.

Thanks Declan, all fish are behind. Talking to Gavin Tivey this morning and all fishing very patchy in the boats. Mackerel scarce enough . Likewise with pollock and cod not around at all. Hopefully with the good weather we will catch loads :D :D :D :D
