What a weekend. Friday night was spent down the Helford using baits consisting of squid, mackeral and sandeel. Spent several hours down there for just one dogfish. Huge moon and a big tide but very peaceful indeed.

Saturday saw an afternoon into night session at Penberth using peeler crab, mackeral, sandeel and squid. Tried for the elusive garfish but yep you've guessed it - nothing doing, only a multitude of 6 oz pollack on the float. My partner Mr had a few wrasse. Stayed into the night until low water and Mr caught a few rockling to about 1lb 8oz, I had my obligatory same-size-as-usual conger of 6 - 8lbs. I wonder if that blighter follows me round from mark to mark as I always seem to catch just the one conger of the same size each rough ground session.

Left at low water deciding to have an easier day on Sunday with a mulleting session. Sunday morning sees Mr mixing up a huge concoction of mackeral, mashed bread, pilchard oil, bran, boiled fish etc etc and off we went "on the mullet."

Arrived at the mark and in went the groundbait (I give Mr all the good jobs lol) and away we went. All well and good with plenty of fish showing. Not so good when I realised they were all smaller than my Penberth pollack. Hmmm ...now what? Both of us were exhausted from Fri and Sat night and it was a case of go home to sleep or drive 20 miles to another mark to fish the flood when we normally fish the ebb at that mark.

20 miles later and we arrive at the mark. Looked over the edge and there were 50 -60 golden grey mullet about in water no more than a foot deep. Thinking it was too shallow to groundbait for fear of splashing and spooking the fish i just cast in as gently as i could. First cast saw me catch a fish and Mr running for the net. No sooner had I cast out again then I had my second fish and third cast saw a third fish. Then all of a sudden all the fish were gone.

We moved to yet another mark and Mr finally caught a few mullet and a bass. I am delighted to say that my biggest "goldie" was 1lb 10oz and it won me 3rd place in the Peter Collins Memorial competition.

All those hours stomping across fields, clambering across rocks, trying to pull leads out of the bottom and i get out of the car and score a 5 minute hat-trick! :yeah:

What else was weighed on the Peter Collins comp?

I'm glad I didn't sign on now - the open coast just seemed to be completely dead yesterday!
