was going to fish a beach somewhere thursday but after checking the weather decided to leave it till friday and give the stour a bash for the first time this year for bass with my son george. after talking with 'Hogster' decided to try a deep water mark first, fish from the start almost every cast for an hour then it died with the full run. upped anchor and tried a couple of drifts but with only 2 fish and the breeze blowing us the wrong way we tried a shallow mark. first cast a stonking bite but missed it. not much else so decided to go back to the deep water, while retrieving my rod i was nailed just before i got to the boat by a fish of about a pound. soon as we stopped at the deep water mark we were into fish it was manic for 10 minutes, as soon as the bait hit the bottom we had a bite, didnt even have a chance to put the rod down. althought the water is still not that clear had one on a lure. well done George for his PB the only real sizable of the day 44cm.
