Walton Pier 02/01/13

Post by dannypanter » Thu Jan 03, 2013 9:37 pm

Travel from Southampton to Walton yesterday with the hope of a cod or 2.
the first cast went in at 1430 roughly on the top of the tide a running ledger with back lug and squid, bang a little codling about 6oz !
With expectations now running high it was to prove a very disappointing day on the pier.
at about 9pm we moved up the coast to fish Golf course corner fishing from low to high water. big squid and lug baits out but only a few descent whitting showed.
packed up about 0530
Total fish 2 codling and 12 whitting between 3 of us and 6 rods
