nice one - was going to go there for two up & down but lost my f*****g car keys - kids had "kindly" put them in a bin bag.

Did you fish close to the rocks on the left? & how far out did you get the Ray?

Nice one.

Also fished down the Knap yesterday and caught my first ever fish! A very small Whiting. About 10 minutes later I caught a flattie. My mate caught 3 small things (possibly whiting/pouting/codling?).

All were caught using rag worm. A successful day for me and a good excuse to get out of the house and watch the sea while drinking a few beers.


p.s. all fish were returned safely!
