Just the two off us went out yesterday with a light S/E Breeze, fishing started of pretty slow with the first nice Bass falling to me on crab.

The Bass went just over two pounds, but what I suprise I had when I turned the fish over it had two very large cuts were you could see were a Tope had bitten in to it not nice, anyway the little bass was returned alive and I think nearly ok.

We started to struggle with the green weed so we moved off shore in about 30ft of water, tide was ebbing away and the wind still a fresh S/E which made it a little sloppy, but the dogfish were feeding hard LOL:yucky::yucky:.

Next Old Bob hit a very good fish I reckon a very large hound we never saw the fish it stayed very deep he had it for a good 15min then yep it parted company and it was all over.:schmoll::schmoll:
The rest of the afternoon bought more Smoothounds the best being a good fish of 18lb caught by old Bob.
This weekend looks good and I am out all weekend so lets see if we can get a big twenty..:clap2::clap2:
All fish were returned alive and none were hurt in the writing of this repot..LOL

Another good report Kris. If only the fishing was as good as the way you write it up for us:):clap3:. Good luck at the weekend. We are still looking for a sizable Smoothie for the SE Specimen list.

Roll on next weekend.
Off work for two weeks so will be doing plenty of fishing.
Never mind specimens, i'll just be happy to catch something.

Is there any particular area in Essex that is fishing well at the moment?
Southend is supposed to be a local hotspot isn't it?

Anywhere else worth a look?

Maybe I'll try the rivers, I've read on here that they fish well sometimes.
Up river from Bradwell power station is supposed to be good I've heard.
Got to get me one of them roker from the beach.
