I wasn't going to bother driving down to the coast as it's an hour each way and it was blowing an absolute hoolie at home. I thought I'd give it a go anyway as it maybe fishable.
I was very surprised when I arrived, the weather forecast said 30mph southerly winds but it was barely 10mph.
I went to the Den for some bait and bits then headed for Langley Point. The 1st cast saw a nice bite but the hook came back stripped and there was a lot of weed. The 2nd cast landed me my 1st bass of the session at 2lb at long range.
It then eased off over high water for about 45 minutes or so before the sea literally came alive with fish and the weed all but disappearing .
I ended up with 7 Bass, the largest being 2.5lb. I also landed a dab and a bream . Funnily enough, the biggest bass was close in after I faffed the cast and it fell short. They always say that bass cruise along behind the 2nd breaker though eh.
It was an excellent session, my original plan was to target sole and an early codling as they've been coming up already, however, it turned out to be my best ever bass session (by quantity). All fish were taken on wrapped blacks, some tipped with squid.
I was thinking that there could be some lunkers about during the darkness (I didn't stay that long) and sure enough a buddy of mine lost the fish if a lifetime off of the beach that very night.

Great session and pictures. Always good to get a pleasant surprise on the weather when we expect it to be a bit of a struggle. Bob
