bognor 20/2/11

Post by browners »

was planning on fishing friday night down bognor sea front , but weather was not what i wanted . f6 straight in your face . with the surf being bad at high water at the moment , thought it would be a nightmare . so did not go . sunday night looked good , since i had the bait waiting in the fridge . decided at the last moment to go . got down there around 9pm high water was around 1am and a massive 6.4 . weather was spot on , over cast with as good as no wind . with a little colour in the water and as good as flat calm . armed with lug , rag , sandeel and squid . was going to fish 2 hook loop rig at range and a 3 hook flapper in close . was in to small rockling and odd small flounders , straight away mainly 5 bearded and shore rockling . but did manage a 3 bearded . most coming on the flapper and rag .

as high tide came the swell was unreal , concidering it was calm with no wind . sport went dead over high water . then just as i was packing up at 3am as it was dead . my distance rod started tapping away and went slack . picked it up , must of reeled in 30 or more yards before i felt any weight . luckly the swell had died off and out of the surf came a bass . weighed in at 6lb6oz , result .had taken rag and sandeel cocktail .

Blimey, just shows what a bit of persistance will achieve. WD mate, makes me think again of having a bash at night which I haven't done lately.
