Since there was no sign of Shep, I had a little play on his patch this morning. A couple of hours up & over high tide. Wind had been NW over night but had come round so it was almost head on to the shore. Sea was lively & a bit confused but no weed & 6oz grip leads held no problem. Bait was black lug tipped with squid. Only two proper bites, both of them keepers.
