Hi guys,
Another trip down there on the bike for the noon day tide being a nice sunny day and off shift.
Only went down there with the multipiece carp rod for what's probably the last Mackerel session of the year the way the tides and my shift's work out.
Hit the beach about ten for last two hours up and fished it down around an hour - 7m tide.
Wind light force 2-3 and negligible weed.
First cast nothing second cast 'Bang' two on, one sizeable and a small 7'' joey went back.
Through the three hours had some threes and fours with quite a few small joey's going back (would have been great live bait for Bass!)
Had a Gar' which would have gone back but was badly hooked through the eye so went home for tipping off black lug for night tides.
A couple came down and fished to the right of me both going for the Mackerel but had nothing, they packed up after a couple of hours!
Distance being the key again, most fish being taken on the drop at long range.
Guys to the left of me were bottom fishing for Plaice but didn't see them have a thing either, most packed up and left before the top of the tide!
Anyway, nice ride out and few hours fishing again having had over twenty fish while there.
Lets have some nice South West blows now and get those Cod and Bass in on the night tides (without too much weed please lol!)
Tight lines all :thumbsup:

#Ipa all the way, well, having another look at the subject, there may be some disagreement, but I believe what I've read on the attached from this forum..... and consequently never catch more than I need, and no, I'm not preaching :)

Thanks for the link, that's interesting.
The reason i disagreed was because of what it says about it on this link

Scroll down to the myths section

However i agree with you that you should not catch more than you need.

Thanks

Another interesting read and another take on the matter about handling them if they're going back.
