<font color='#000000'>Evenin&#39; all, just a quick note to say hello.
I&#39;m a newbie to beach fishing (been wrecking & reefing for me whole life tho,) & I&#39;m off on me first outing tonight. I&#39;m fishing Mappleton, on the East coast of Yorkshire(God&#39;s own county&#33;) Hopefully looking to get into the codling & whiting, but I&#39;m not expecting too much from my first worm drowning session. I&#39;ll post back tomorrow & let y&#39;all know what happened & hey, who knows, maybe you&#39;ll all let me know where I went wrong &#33;
Don&#39;t know what the #### rigs to use, or even the best time to fish the tides, but the ebb stops at 8(ish) tonight & I&#39;m hoping to fish the full extent of the flood, so, wish me luck & I&#39;ll be back tomorrow (drowning permitting &nbsp;
)</font>

<font color='#FF0000'>Well, it&#39;s official. The North Sea is actually empty. I fished from 9:30 right up to an hour after high tide with nary a glance at my perfectly presented bait. At 3:00ish (thats A.M., by the way) I decided to up anchors and have a dekko at Brid&#39;s South Pier. Again my perfectly *ahem* baits were completely ignored. The fact that a force 6 was blowing into me face did nothing to deter me ( apart from at one point when I thought I&#39;d got a bite, struck & the wind took the line right around me neck&#33;) I did manage to cop a hold of lots of lost tackle, without actually losing any of my own, which, apparently, is something of a bonus. So, with a few salvaged 6oz gripper leads & 3 five hook Hokkai rigs in hand I wended my weary (& windblown) way home, only to be told to vacate the marital boudoir forthwith, due to the apparrent odour of mackerel pervading the long suffering&#39;s blissfull slumber.
&nbsp;Personally I like the smell of fish.

That&#39;s why I got married in the first place.</font>

<font color='#000000'>heh excellent, how come the wife doesn&#39;t like smelly fish??

I never do very well when it&#39;s too windy, I can never spot the bites. It sounds as though you pulled more stuff out of the sea than you threw in, so thats a good start


Keep trying, don&#39;t give up there&#33;</font>
