Best time. After dark.
First outing since rods packed away for the summer.No other anglers when I arrived. Started fishing 11.30am and fished to 20.45 with not a single bite tap or even a crab just a platic bag.(which I put in my rubbish bag save the planet!)Baits stripped in 15 minutes though.
After dark went nuts and was the most hectic session I can remember.
As one rod went out the other was bouncing about with baits only out for 5 minutes.
A few double shots and some cracking bites. Ended up running out of bait which I was pleased as I was totally knackered. (6.5 miles clocked on fit bit!)
Three other groups arrived between 4pm and 6pm obviously for after dark session.
Back there next week but I will go nearer evening.
Lovely mild day and very warm in the sun although the fog turned it chilly when it arrived.
Great to be back on the beach and roll on next week!
