Tried North Beach with Andrew again today. Started at 9.30am with low water at 11.37. Usual rods, rigs and bait. Virtually no weed and a small tide but the wind was quite strong from the south, much stronger than forecast. If I had known how strong it was I would not have bothered going. Fished until 2pm but blanked, not a touch. Andrew manager 3 whiting all in size and spread through the tide. Crabs were reasonable to start with but awful once the tide slowed down. I don't know what has happened to North Beach, it was fishing quite well this time last year. On something different I watched a very interesting programme which was on BBC4 called Ocean Autopsy. It was on a few weeks ago now but have only just watched my recording, it should be on I-player. It is about the state of the North Sea, which is not good. One very interesting fact that was mentioned is that the North Sea has warmed up twice as fast as any other sea. I think that this must explain the change in species mix that we have had in Norfolk over the last few years.
