Haven't fished for 2 weeks because of schedules and folks being busy so we took the bull by the horns.
Claire the boys and I booked into the room above the surf cafe in Burry Port for a weekend of adventure. Claire dropped me off at Black point at 2;30 Saturday afternoon. It was a big tide so got a great look at the gulley. This is the first time I've been here in daylight.
Bait was an inch of frozen black tipped with a thumbnail of mackerel on size 4,s.
First cast on each rod resulted in a dab even though it looked like it was mainly fresh water flowing out.
Had a few very fierce bites with the lug being taken but not the mackerel so I started leaving the mackie off.
I had a little help from my boys settin up.
An hour later I had another dab then as the tide started to flood, nothing, nada, not even a bite.
As darkness hit at 6pm so did the weed. Miles and miles of that bloody stringy grass stuff. Had to stop reeling and unclog my tip eye at least 3 times per reel in on each rod.very frustrating.
Decided to relocate around the corner and cast into the smaller nearer gulley. Still a serious rip with serious weed although I did blag another dab.
Gave up around 6:30 despite it being dark and lovely.
So 3 hours fishing, 4 dabs.
Love burry port!
Claire picked me up aroun 7 pm and then we carried on with our weekend. Today we scootered around the coastal path before heading into the breacons looking for snow.
