Just a quick report: Fished the East arm of Brighton Marina yesterday from 6pm through until about 2.30am. Bay 32 to start with then a short move to 36 a bit later. No wind. Flat calm, clear sea. No weed to speak of. Was especially interested in fishing the low water (10.30 approx) period for Bass.

Fished Mackerel head on a long link running ledger for Bass and used lug on a size 4 two hook flapper. Could only get one wrap of lug so used very small pieces to make it last longer. As it happened, it ran out very quickly and resorted to small pieces of Mackerel instead.

Final result was: Two small schoolies, one small Bream, loads of Pout and one small Red Mullet falling to lug and a small Thornnie and a Scad on the Mackerel. I did feather for some fresh Mackerel at dusk but only managed one. Nothing at all on the Bass rod, even live baited with the Pout but nothing interested in it.

Disappointed at not getting anything decent - especially on the Bass front but it was a decent evening out.

The Red Mullet was my first from the marina - had a few at other places over the years but never there. Pity they're not a bit bigger though - I luv 'em in a pan.

Last night had great conditions for the low water Bass but someone obviously forgot to invite the buggers
