With the weather as its been I thought I dont fancy walking on the rocks at my usual venue so I went off to search for a blonde or spotty :).Just a couple of hrs before high ...so went pebble dancing on the Knap...a place im not really fond of.
Set myself up with double sandeel on one ...2 hook flapper with lots of rag (cheers Andrew m8) and big conger bait .
Target today ...a blonde or spotty neither ive caught in 50 yrs of fishing:cool:.
wind was overhead ,sea flatish.

Wasnt long before the rod with rag bounced ..a tiny whiting ...well no prob ..no blank

Did it put up much of a fight? I once had a pair of shorts on the boat out by the North Cardiff buoy and they fought all the way in , on a raging tide.To this day they are still my p.b. shorts.

Nice one Brand ....
Years ago we used to catch a lot of "towels" off the black pipe in Newport. Then they moved the sewer pipe.

Well done mate, I thought I had a brace of an eel and ray until i got closer and discovered it was a branch and carrier bag...... I was convinced I could feel the headshakes!

We passed a guy. On the back of a boat once. Rod bent double. We thought eh that' looks a nice fish. So we turned around awesome scrap tbh blood sweat n tears. Imho. How ever after around 30 minutes 8x4 sheet of ply skimmed up to the surface ha.

Sounds similar to a session I had a few years ago. Fishing was really rubbish.

My mate had a cracking slack liner but it was just heavy all the way in.

I scrambled down the rocks to collect the fish and he couldn’t see. I shouted up oh pants. He thought that I had lost the fish.... but no..... it was a nice soggy pair of boxers....
