warden BAY still no RAY for unlucky JAY

Post by jay180 »

went warden bay friday with beefy an lee361, got down an set up and was
out the wind, result.... as the tide approaches its lookinng calm an not
choppy, got high hopes tonight im thinking, as the post title states, that
was my luck, an the same for beefy an lee361, not a touch. saw essexdangler down there, he was with 2 others and they blanked, they had 4 out the previous night, ah well, another week at work before i have
a 4th shot at the ray...... hope it aint another :(( :(( :(( day, please

Gday Jay. I think you & me are trying to hard M8. Tried most baits, rigs ,distances & still zero results. Might take a leaf out of your carp fishing book & try sweetcorn, Strawberry pop ups & floating cat biscuits might at least hook a seagull :-O . Bell ya during the week & let ya know wots happnin on the island. If we do meet up on friday i might bring a few beers & a book to read :(( if my lucky son comes. Cheers M8 Clive

Gday Jay. Sorry m8 just logged back on . Friday 3rd April
High tide is 19-20 at 4.8 meters Ya gotta add an hour on to GMT for BST (british summer time) so thats prolonging the agony ,ANOTHER hour of blanking. If i start fishing for the smooth hounds now i might get one before the end of the summer. What do ya reckon mate shall we start the mission now? Clive

Unlucks Jay.. Certainly no lack of trying mate.. why not set up permanent camp there..??? we'll all come and visit lol.. :D :D
Takes me an hour and half to get down that way.. Lucky I'm moving to Dorset finally, all of 5 minutes walk to get to my nearest mark!!! :D :D

Unlucky Jay. Keep at it mate, and just think how happy your going to be when, on a session sometime soon, one of the rod tips starts to pluck. ;)
