Brighton Marina Friday 2/3/12

Post by Metalmark »

DannyFisher n I decided to let the Train take the Strain and headed to Brighton on Friday 2d March in search of some Red Spots...

Not ever fished this venue b4 packed loadsa rigs including spoons, 2 hook flappers n 3 hook jobbies. Danny assured me of some action and boy was he right!

We met at Soton station for the 09.18 train full of anticipation and optimism!

1.1/2 hours later we arrived, had a fag (ha ha in Brighton) ok a cigarette, then jumped on the #7 bus to the Marina. got off the bus headed str8 to Maccy D`s for a breakkie then on to the Marina Wall for some Flattie Bashin!

1st chuck... some 20yds out i had a Bite which resulted in a flounder to Lug, didnt take a piccy as it was a smallen (10oz or so)... then Danny had a knock which resulted in our first Red spot.

Baited up my little Sonik and went for the mini species... in for 10 mins then out popped my first Sea Scorpian to Mackerel

Then dans turn, a nice little rattle... Dab on...

Dans turn for the mini`s, out goes the "sabikis" hunting for the Herring.... rrr rrr... happy Bunny

My turn next.... tip rattled ever so slighty... left it coz i wanted a fag... (sorry say it carefully in that neck of the woods) Ciggy! and "Fish on" Plaice for me too...

my mini rod is sat there all lonesome when another Sea Scorpian makes an appearance... all 8" of him... Angry little Monster

then to top that Danny has a 2 hook up of Whiting n Dab and i have a 3 hook up of 2 Dabs n a Whiting..
Image
As its starting to get Dark the rods are going crazy.... Dans having Dabs every cast along with the obligatory 5 bearded Slug and i manage to scratch out my first 5 Bearded Rockling of the year, probably my last too!

By far the best days fishing this year for the pair of us!
