Alright lads been a while from I've had a report up..

Haven't had the bait gear out in well over a year maybe 2.... 2 lads from work were heading for benone on friday night I thought I'd tag along.. got to the beach around 2.30pm to fish a rising tide high tide was 6.30 not ideal but us shift workers can't be to picky... I fished 2 rods 1 at distance clipped down rig big baits and 1 in close 2 hook flapper small baits... the distance rod kept the crabs fed and I'd a plaice and a flounder on the close rod in a 7 hour session... 1 of the other lads had 3 flounder the other had 9 plaice & flounder he was using 3 hook flapper size 4 hooks I refuse to go below size 2 :laugh:

Not a great session but I enjoyed getting the big rods out again even if it does feel overpowering to catch wee flatties :laugh::laugh:

Till the next time

Stevie....

Alright mark mate

I've been out a few times the past few weeks with my wee boy at portmuck with the lures just hadn't a report up. All small pollock apart from 1 ( I'll upload the picture)

Na small hooks ain't for me either! That was the 1st and last time using them :thumbsdown: my next beach outing I'll be reverting back to big hooks and pennel rigs :thumbsup:

But aye it was great to get the bait gear back out...
