Had a bash at Brean Down today, Chesney Hawkes and a old friend Dave who's done a lot of charter boat fishing but not a lot of shore fishing came with me. Chesney had a small strap first cast and then no-one had nothing till the start of the flood when i had a small strap..............

i missed a few bites and then had this thornie about 7lb......

A very quiet day really 2 straps and 1 ray to 6 rods, bait was frozen crab, squid and macky. Was hoping to get a few to encourage Dave into the tackle shop to kit himself out but thats fishing.
Dave on the mark.....

3ft pulley to keep the bait well away from the lead, did you also notice the thorns on the underside of the ray? 2nd ray i've had now like that and both from exactly the same spot:unsure:
