Tides were excellent this morning for a local mark. Set alarm for 0300, alarm went off, did I get up? Thought had hit the snooze button for 5 mins but alas no, had turned it off. Awoke 0630, dam & blast might as well go down, dog needs a walk.
Flogged the mark for an hour for one schoolie, which is pants. Eight seals on the go about 200m out so had missed the fish:( Did see a young cormorant trying to get a decent flounder down it's neck though, was a lovely morning.
Dog beat me he got himself a rabbit, well he got me a rabbit, it's in salt water just now for cooking later.


Family still sleeping think I will suggest a beach trip for 1300 so can get some turbot and give dog a chance to beat me again.

heres a tip for the most dedicated fisherman, drink about 3 pints of water just before bed, come 3-4 am you will get up without setting an alarm promise, missus gets fed up with the alarm waking her up for me to go fishing this works a treat.

Well done to the pooch on the catch. I take it he's not a C&R type?
Usually he gets them, brings them, and I despatch them, in this case slightly different. Rabbit was about 7ft below the path, he sprung off the path and landed square on it with front paws..........snapped it, picked it up brought it back.
His best effort to date has been a skylark taken on the wing as it rose, it was unmarked and flew off after he gave it to me.
