Hide and Seek!!

Post by mattynewks »

I didn't win!!

Went out to Wembury today after work, 5pm high tide. Instead of fishing though, it was on with the wetsuit, snorkel and mask to see whats about.

A massive shoal of Sand Eel, maybe 1000 going to nearly 8''. A sure sign that predators can't be far away. Not a sniff, crabs are on the peel also (collected a few last night) so was expecting to see fish banqueting on this readily available buffet.

Infact, I'd say it was strangely eery out there. Thinking of checking a few marks to see what signs of life are showing.

I went down with a bell helmet al la jacques cousteau, perfect for smoking the old roll up ;)

To the left was where the Eel' were, carried on but to no avail, which is when we headed out on the point. Will go again soon and give a second report.

On a lighter note, got 20 peelers, some rag and other tit bits for tomorrow night session at my Bass and Huss spot, so I'll report on that saturday morning.
