Got on the beach at 7 just right of the king alfred, there was a quite a swell and white horse's a good two hundred yards out. I thought this is gonna be an orrrible night with this headwind.
I got set up with 3 hook flappers and whacked it out with 6oz grippers and even they were struggling to hold, there was also lots of weed about(oh joy).
Anyway finished at 12 with 3 dabs, 5 plaice, and 2 rockling. All small fish but considering the state of water and my first thoughts not a bad nights fishing.
Also, putting up my beach shelter was an epic battle of wills. Should anybody know of an easy fix in the wind ,do tell.

Interesting you are on first name terms with the barmaid Mark...... Does the missus know......?

My beach buddy drinks pints of Stones.

On a more mature footing, (I can do this....) that is actually quite a result, five plaice, undersized or not, off that beach. Well done!!

Man goes onto a pub with a beach buddy

Barman: "This isn't a gay bar you know"
Man: "Why do you ask?"
Barman: "Your mate looks like he's a little camp"
