After standing on Trimingham cliffs Friday afternoon and seeing the crests and chop in the stiff north westerly I really didn’t think I’d be fishing this weekend. Even if the wind did drop today, the water was so coloured it would have ruled out another inshore wreck trip. I turned for home totally p***** off and to make matters worse I was told we were taking the kids to Yarmouth Pleasure Beach today. Yarmouth sea front don’t you just love it! Things got better then as I was told to drop her and the kids off and bog off fishing then pick them up later, I wasn’t going to argue with that one.
I realized I had to break my own rule then and take some bait I really couldn’t see myself catching off Gorleston with feathers and shads. I had two half packs of squid in the freezer so I took those along.
I wouldn’t normally choose to fish in the Yarmouth/Lowestoft area during summer and I didn’t expect too much but I did take a couple of dabs. The water even became quiet clear for a while, as the ebb picked up.
My best fish was this starry of 5 1/2lb, it fought so hard I thought I’d hooked a pb. I never thought I’d boat it as the tide was ripping through by then and it was on a no.1 flatty hook.


I moved inshore when the weed came along, the boys were playing with their new railway cranes.

Pretty fish and satisfying to 'defy the odds' with bait you would rather not be using:clap2:

Nice one PF, I'm quite surprised the water clarity was pretty decent so comparitively close in.

It only cleared for a while Mack, it soon coloured up again once a ebb got going. Hope it clears off N. Norfolk for the weekend.
