Well I decided on a dawn raid on our brilliant yorkshire coastline for a change today, as the rivers are a struggle at present.
I was up by 3am to fish the ebbing tide from high. Got to the coast which involved a rope descent, and started fishing with shallow diving plugs.
Bearing in mind if I get a couple of bass in a whole summer it's standard, imagine my surprise when this bass hit my lure 3rd cast, this being my first session of the summer...
This one was about a pound and a half.
I kept plugging away with the successful lure and a short while later a bigger fish hit my lure. By the way, a bass hitting your lure is one of the best experiences in angling in my opinion, absolutely brilliant and a good fight. This one took a bit longer to get in, and I was happy with this one of 2lb 5oz.
And that was it, the tide went too far out for this part, and we went home, up the rope!!
Going for a nap now...
