     Title: The End Of A Good Day

Sunday 22 September 2013



The conditions looked spot on as i clambered down the cliffs with excitement to get to my mark. This is one of my favourites, a very shallow mark and i tend to concentrate on fishing one part of it as the tide starts to flood, comming through a main gulley and then flooding over nice reefy ground, so its cast after cast hittin into the gulley then a slow retreive back over the shallow ground. I tend to start off with soft plastics fished weedless, such as Dolive sticks as the water is so skinny, then as the depth increases i tend to put on shallow floating lures, the daiwa shore line shiner r50 ssr has been doing really well for me recently, so out it went and it wasnt long before i had a good solid hit and the clutch started making the right kind of sound. Its always interesting fighting a good fish in shallow water, 1 to 2 ft and i tend to just take my time and play them out with the rod up high...



So after a good old tussle she was mine, a cracker in tip top condition that came in at 7lb 10 the best of the season so far, sea temperature is 16 degrees, its generally a one fish mark, so i moved on and caught one small fish and got to enjoy a great sunset, the end of a good day ....
