Nice one!! B) Sounds like you had a cracking night mate...Were you finding that the bass are sill feeding fairly close in or further out???

Hi,

I was there last night and the night before for full tide. The surf was full of leaves and weeds which mad it hard going. Caught nowt though.

Sounds like I was in the wrong place !!!!

I had a 2lb Cod a week last Sunday on an evening tide. The mark being the slip way at the coast guard centre near the roundabout at the petrol station. More bad weather on the way so Iam leaving it until the week end at least.

Cheers

fair play mate its sounds like you had a great session. What kind of distances are you casting???

Ive only managed small schooly bass from the beach. When are you expecting cod on the beach. Iam willing to put the hours in lol??

Anyone know what won the competition???

Cant understand the weed and leaves Mark the water was so clear :eek:
I think the water temp will have to drop a little before any cod show. <_<
I always tend to fish the Naval end of the beach, I have a theory that the fish come from the ferryside :blink: ,Interesting the dab I caught last night was full of cockle shell, and the Bass were very clean.
Theres a large cockle bed toward the ferry ,hence my theory :D I have fished into that bed on a spring tide and its amazing how many cockles come up on the rigs.
Going back to your question on distance, I walked into the water up to my knees to cast and I guess about 70/80 yards . :blink: But I got backed up on the rocks just after the prom on top tide and was managing about 50 from there and that got the dab. :unsure:
cheers lads jury

ps I dont know who won the comp last week yet
