    Happy Newyear to all you salty anglers out there.

    Getting seriously back into sea fishing after years of carp angling and half a decade of metal detecting the beaches.

    As a teenager caught some nice whiting, flounder from the beaches.
    Managed cod on reels and dacron from the boat, tricked a few bass on those early days plastic lures they called twisters.

    Wow how tackle has changed, I'm reading up on just about everything salty.
    Can't wait to get my boots on the sand again.

    Tight lines for all in 2017

    It has its good days and bad days. From the beach they're catching a lot of whiting and flounder, the occasional codling.

    The boats sort out the better fish and catches, but nothing even close to record books ;)
