sorry been a bit remiss on the updates , real life distracts me from time to time . Shocking I know but hey, there it is . sooooo Start of with the poo news.
Anglers still have not got the message about climbing up on the east wall. An accident was just avoided Thursday when a lazy fool climbed up to the top level after packing up “to walk off the wall” The dumper truck coming up the wall missed him by inches.
words fail me that are printable here !
Please please please all anglers need to step up on this, watch each other and watch out for the walls safety. A meeting with the builders, the shop and marina bosses was had Friday morning and we escaped close down by a whisker. So to all wall users , look out for each other and respect the wall, the upper level is a no go for any reason, it is a building site. Lorries and work vehicles use it all the time & the next “accident ” may do more than put someone in hospital & close the walls.
So onto better things.
Bass , bass & bass. Some great fish coming out and a superb fish yesterday on the east of 6.9kilo! , mackerel and black lug baits! Yes it was one for the table, some would say put it back so it can breed and i’m in that camp BUT , on the wall I will always defend the right of an angler to keep or return any legal fish should they chose to do so…. superb and for many a fish of a lifetime.
Yes there are plenty of bass coming out on both walls, prawns top of the pile atm, followed by mackerel and /or squid baits .
