Hi guys
I had a go at east beach last night. I fish until an hour before high tide. I was hopping to stay longer but my young son was getting tired. Using sand eel, squid and rag worm for bait. I managed a silver eel, small conger of around 1.5ib and a couple of black bream around 10cm. I think the bright moon last night killed it. I didn’t get a single bite once the moon came up.

I’m going to give church norton ago on Thursday or Friday during the day.

Yes, you are right about the moon. These days I just don't bother if there is going to be a high bright moon as I have too often seen the affects on beach fishing in the past. I don't knw why it happens but it does.
