well.... on the way out i was very optomistic, seemed verry rough!! but one we had crossed thoes lovely sand banks out from burryport it calmed off a little...
firs we stopped off on a reef the other side worms head... straight into bass.... nothing of any size, but you can never expect huge fish with sandeel. best was about 4lb..
alll of a sudden the fish just turned off, as though some one had turned a tap off.
tried a few other marks with just a few coming here and there.
all the rough weather has probably broke the shoals like it has done to the mackrel.

in all a brilliant trip, conditions were against us, but all fairness the skipper tried his best.
it was a bassing trip, we caught plenty of bass. every one was happy.

as for the coments made before on a previouse thread,
the skipper is top class, it was rough out there today, it was not canceled, and we caught.
NO undersize fish were allowed to be kept, and he advised that fish should be well over the limit to be kept. he encourages catch and release, but it down to the individual!

about 40 bass were boated today. between 7 of us, 10 kept.
