Just spent 3½ hours watching the tide go out at Croyde. Was hoping to meet up with Paul the Rookie ... didn't ... but he didn't miss much!

It looked like a good surf, no weed, no moon until late, but sandeel, squid and maddies all drew blanks. There were at least two lights on Down End rocks and more the other way, over on the sewer pipe, but I think I was the only sucker on the beach ... maybe they knew something I didn't!

It was all finished off nicely when crowd of drunks charged down the beach to splash about and scream themselves hoarse.

But what pees me off the most is that it's June now ... JUNE ... and there seems to be bugger all coming off the sand anywhere [with one exception: Paul had 2 nice bass here 2 nights back]. That said, I can't remember the last time I blanked at any rock/mixed ground mark.

So I'm thinking of packing up fishing — beaches — for the foreseeable future [bit of a bummer after just having splashed out on 2 beachcasters], at least until someone starts posting some decent catch reports.


I won't hold my breath.
:uhuh:
