Bradwell report 28th August 2010
Another crappy day weather wise, we banked on it being calmish due to the forecasts issued by Guru and XC, BUT THEY WERE WAY OFF THE MARK. Whats new?? Steve, Alan, Peter, and self had a late start due to the tides being awkward, got away about 9-30am, taking note of the propaganda posted about loads of small codling off Clacton we followed the North shore of the Blackwater then across the mouth of the Colne and up the beach to Clacton pier. Never saw a mark on the fishfinder the whole way absolute desolate. Tried close in for an hour ZILCH, the went out towards the windfarm, but as we got further south so the sea got rougher, we stopped short of the Gunfleet bank and decided that was far enough. The fishing was slow to say the least, we had three of these
and Three of these
not impressed!! Hopefully things will get a little better and either summer will return INDIAN STYLE or Autumn will get a move on and the species that go with it return in force.
Thanks again for your company Alan and Peter, and the sausages and bacon. At least we did not go hungry.
