Well,


Went down to the pipeline at low. fished 2 rods 1hr before low to 1hr after, First set up was a pulley rig with a pennell hooked sandeel hoping for a bass. The second rod was a two hook flapper with size 4 hooks, hoping for a plaice or two. Baits used were Maccy, Sandeel and squid, and a cocktail of the three.

Surprise Surprise blanked. Loads of fish jumping and splashing around (could have been mullet). Baits stripped within afew minutes, presumably by crabs. With all the fish splashing on the surface perhaps plugging would have been a better option.

My results in the Bay are shocking to put it mildly. Any ideas why I keep blanking? Wrong rigs/bait/timing? or just unlucky.

Might go back tomorrow with the plugs.

ive been asking myself the same question for 10 years :laugh: pays off when i go elsewhere though.
squid isnt the best bait to be honest, the only thing ive caught on it around here is dogfish in autumn. mackeral is best used in the winter for whiting/flatties and sandeel doesnt seem to be very popular around here, ive caught flounder on it, no bass though. you would be best sticking with worm baits and crab baits through out the summer months. i honestly cant go fishing without worm whether its fresh/frozen.

unlucky about this fishing ben, must of been a nice night to of been out though. next time you know to take some bread and a float setup with you!:fishing:

Arran.
