Met up with F1F3R for an early spring trip. Wasnt too confident but thought that we might hit at least 1 fish each.

Wasnt to be im afraid. I had 3 bites but no takes. Fishing with lug, rag, squid and mackerel. Water was slightly coloured, strongish wind from the west and a medium swell. Not the best conditions for summer fishing. I'll tuck the rods away until May i think.

Not the warmest of days with the wind, but the sun was out now and again, didnt really feel like it but the sore head and red face and eyes confirmed it was.

No Cod, Pollack or Coalfish at Dunbar either further south. 3 boat trips =ZERO.

:) Still a bit early for the summer fish, but at least you got out for the day. Me and Bigpirk are heading out for a trip tomorrow. Will let you know how we get on. 7 days of pure fishing. Wind might be a pain though.:schmoll:

I've almost given up on April. Wasnt confident too begin with and the blank last weekend hasnt helped. Maybe i should concentrate on fishing my bathroom and kitchen that i started 2 years ago.

Roll on May.

Martin - give it a by for a month or so. Take up golf the courses and weather is near perfect just now - and its safer LOL. Tried my hand at the - dark side - last week. Three rainbows all 3 to four pounds - didnt like it honest - they hardly pull at all - didnt know I had them on. Ive been promised a stash of fresh peeler next month so I will give you a ring and we will try that wee spot on a slightly calmer day.

Good man, but maybe i'll show you another magic venue. Mind your hiking boots and a pair of waders would go a miss.
