I am a gluten for punishment .
I will fish everyday regardless of weather.
And ESPECIALLY when the bait in my fridge is looking like this !!!
So , with 30mph breeze due a couple of hours into the session , my intentions were to fish long range for any hounds cruising about , and drop short for the bass once the wind and tide picked up. Someone didn’t tell the fish my plans though !
First cast was this beautiful little bass , which gave me a decent slackliner and made a b line to the surface 120 yards out . The whole way in i was just praying it wasnt an eel !!
Shortly after, another decent slackliner but struck into nothingness ?! How can that be ?
Then the winds rolled in , and with quite a big tide , ended up getting fairly wet.
The fish decided not to play ball , and had me regretting my decision to leave my squid indoors , or i would of plonked a whole squid bait 15 yards out in the surf. But we live and learn .
This was my least productive session at canvey island in the last 4 weeks , but to be honest , i knew today was going to be a shot in the dark . The hounds have thinned out during these bigger, rougher tides , but i was dying to get these crabs in the drink
Hopefully the next session will be more eventful !
BRING ON THE FISH
Tight lines all, Dominic and Kai
