HOUNDHUNTER AND COWBOY CASTER SAT NITE AT WITCHES, FROM MIDNIGHT TO 6pm SUNDAY.
The night went slow with 2 small rays caught during low water on live sandeel, found the point to be very hard to cross due to the sand disappearing over the years, it has become very rugged and was very dodgey to walk on with all the tackle.
as soon as the tide turned we fished the ledges and h/hunter had two nice rays, and i had a sad tope lol lol
over on the point some lads from llanharan had a smooth hound from what we saw, well done lads.
at 9am we abandoned witches due to lack of bites and headed to porthcawl beach after a quick maccy d lol
fished the rear beach behind the pier only to find that smooth hounds were coming off in double figures, with small rays as well.
lost a good few traces, as the beach approx 150 yards out has a reef running left to right and we kept getting snagged, lesson learn,t very quickly.
we noticed that gerwyn was banging in hounds up on top of the peir in a foot and a half of water, best was about 6 .5 lbs then some chap lost a larger one trying to hand line it up the side lol
weather was so nice we pushed on and finished 18 hours in total of fishing time, feeling totally knackered and wet to the neck up but thats a long story about saving traces.

all in all a great session and hope too do it again with as much fish as we had or more and the elusive bass that iam chasing ( 10lb plus ).

Well done lads. A smooth hound is definately on my to-do list in the next few sessions.

I thought my last couple of 10 hours sessions were long, 18 hours?....bugger that!
