Happy new year, Went fishing on Sunday with some family and freinds ,that came down from Southampton.We fished three up and two back .With in the first hour Alan,( one of the mates )caught a small under size codling and things started to look up, with my bro catching a whitting of about a pound . Then things went dead an hour before high , with only one other whitting being caught .( Another party up the beach from us caught a codling of about 4Lb) .Just before high my bro landed a whitting of about 2 lb .Then it was the old mans turn landing a whitting of about a pound . At about an hour after high tide with the lads giving me some jip about not getting a decent codling between us , my brother lands one of 4 1/2 lb nice plump fish .This saved some of my blushes but not all , as i blanked . Out of six of us three of us blank, not so good . but knowing how bad the tide was, we didn't do so bad or did we ? strill can't make my mind up . Hope to go Wed , keep you posted . may your rods be bent and your buckets full have a great new year one and all .
