Fished East Aberthaw from 1130-1730. The ebb was quiet until 1 hour before lw, when I dropped a runner after 1 minute when the hook trace broke. I need to check for barnacle damage more often!

Then I missed 2 runs on the next two casts before landing a 9lb starry. The next cast produced another 9lber, followed by yet another identical 9lb starry after that!

I saw three other anglers near me get 2-3 similar size fish apiece.

Then on my last but one cast I had a starry of 7-12.
Finally I ran out of leads & crab so it was time to call it a day.

Thanks to the angler who took this photo of my first fish.
