Hi all, trips have been few and far between for me since the birth of my 2nd nippa in March, so I was all the more excited to get out last night for the 1st time in 6 weeks.

Myself and a buddy took a stroll down to Mewslade arriving around 10pm. Perfect conditions with a nice breeze, good surf and no rain for a change. Within 10 minutes of first cast I had a monster bite on whole squid that resulted in this:



Sods law I had no scales on me, but I'm 100% positive its a new PB bass for me. No idea of how heavy it was but I'd guess around the 8lb mark. Anyway a quick photo and back to the sea to fight another day.

Went quiet for an hour or so before my buddy BIG E had a good knock only for him to lose it on the retrieve. Another 30 minute quiet patch before another good bite and another missed fish for BIG E closely follwed by a missed opertunity for me too. Still a lovely night to be out, especially after 6 weeks off.

I have managed to wet a line at:

Waterwynch (start of July) - Blanked (nice beach though)

Ogmore (cods gulley) 2 dogs and 5 pouting

Ginst (back in june) - Another nice bass, this one came home with me and weighed in at 4lb.



Anyway off to Holland for a week soon, so I'm gonna try my luck over there. Hoping to get a bit more fishing in when I get back. Hope my lightwieghtedness is forgiven.

Tight lines all.....

clonking bass m8, well done. do you fish mewslade regular?
Fished there once before last summer over high (off the rocks on the right) managed a couple of mackeral and that was it.

Been itching to have another go there. Went down there last weekend camping but the weather was horrific, so the cider came out to play instead :drunk:
