well me and the old boar went to orford with 4 others to the narrows.
expectantions were high after the blow and plenty of tide run i thought this should be good.

well to cut a long story short is was pretty crap realy.

dad wopt my arse catching 8 small codling but i think 2 may have been just sizeable.

i was sticking to the whole suid and wipped blacks to try and stay away from the tiddlers but alas this time the bigger fish didnt show and had just 2 small codling.

but never mind but for the 3rd time out of 17 trips it didnt work still never mind.

I have the feeling we won't get one this year. If it does come it'll be late and they'll pitch up when the crabs start popping along with the bass, could be good but don't hold your breath! The number of times i've fished in good conditions on good tides and struggled this year apart from the minis lets hope they all get back next year.

i hope your are right aitch.

we were a month behind but with the mild weather i dont know if it will happen.

however we still havent seen many doggies yet as they normally show mid april in numbers at orford, so thinking the sea is a degree warmer i would have seen them in numbers buy now but the havent showed yet only a few here and there.
