Tried for an early Ray last night and settled on a nice easy session along Hordle Cliff.

After walking a reasonable way to the mark, got off to a bad start when took 5 mins clearing up someone elses mess - baitbox wrappers all over the shop and an empty carrier bag that had obvioulsly been used to house some 'off' slipper limpets.

If this rubbish was yours, then hang your head in shame....:busted_co

The distance off the beaten track this was also makes my think its not your average numpty as well...:doh:

Anyhows, rant over. Fished until 1-15am with plenty of tide and minimal weed for no rays but a half dozen dogs -some of which were tiny. All came to a double ammo eel topped and tailed.

Don't know what has happened to the bottom, but pulled for a near break every other cast before getting the gear back, so either a big snag out there or some very rough ground been exposed. Evidence of clay there as well...

A pleasant 4 hours in the mist and rain even if just doggies.

Dropped the litter into the clifftop bin whilst going back to the car :wallbash:

Laters,

Mart.

Funny enough I fished Barton a few weeks ago and had the same problem rigs being stuck in the clay, those storms must have really changed the sea bed in that area
Hi Colin,

Although evidence of clay, it wasn't the culprit. Using the impact leads that I favour, they would normally get bunged up, but there was nothing - not even on the wires - strange really.

There was a big surf running at times and I did wonder if the line was being buried on the sand bar though.

Was fish at a fair range.

Cheers,

Mart.
