i got there about 8pm and started fishing 15mins later on the end. there were a few fishing the platform areas but all had nothing as i passed. on the end there was about 5 fishing the left side and front and a few on the concrete.

there had only been a couple of small whiting and dabs caught since 5pm.

i fished straight of the end using my usual rigs. in about 2.1/2 hours i only had 6 fish, 3 dabs and 3 whiting 4 of which were size.

as usual i couldnt help helping the other guys near me out and gave away the last of my glow grubs and tweeked a rig or two. i even gave one of them my top to wear as he was freezing.

they also managed a couple of size whiting after that.

the one guy left on the concrete had a few whiting and dabs also.

as i came off speaking the the lads fishing further back towards the platforms they had 1 flattie and 2 whiting between 5 of them.

i only used rag and mackerel today, just to use it up really but i dont think any other bait would have worked any better.

i had a nightmare on one of my rods getting 4 crack offs almost in succession. resulting in loosing 2 spools of line and all the other stuff that goes with a cast.

i think the problem might be with my rod, a cracked ring or something but will strip and check the reel also.

with the calm sea and small tide i thought there would be loads of whitng to catch but this was the worst session i have had on there for a long time. the bigger dabs will probably moved off to spawn plus most of the whiting.

its going to be lean times for a couple of weeks unless thers a bit of movement until other species move in.

left at 10.45pm and put the rest of my worms back to bed until later in the week.
