ticking

I missed a few days for posting , mainly due to the hint in the title , things have mostly ticked over with no real shout outs. Dave worked the wall or went up there for a nosey early evening and may have taken fish with him . The day had been somewhat quiet in the full heat of the day but as things cooled a bit there was a small run of mackerel on the walls and an past visitor returning whom he used to jokingly call “Tango” obviously his private joke & perhaps ive now outed dave 😛 😛 .

On the catch front there seem to be loads of cuttle in the water & have been so for a week or so with numbers seemingly still increasing and no doubt on remarking on it I’ve jinxed the catches !
Plaice are somewhat up n down in sizes with little consistency and as posted previously there are horse mac & mackerel coming in as the light goes. Black Bream & wrasse seem stubbornly lower in numbers than previous years and am still hoping for a better pick up rate than
is there right now. I likely as not said prior that with trawler activity curbed the seaweed and indeed seabed should show a slow improvement over the next 2-3 years. It does look like there is sign that guilthead bream are becoming more common on the higher bays of both walls which is encouraging. Night catches include mackerel , horse mac, assorted size & species of ray and bass takes seem a consistent size around the 4-6lb mark with prawns doing well.
Plenty of live baits in the water yesterday evening but lacking during the full heat of the day. A few gurnard out there on the sands and ive heard a whisper of mullet on the high east bays but not had that confirmed with a name to the reports.
Looking good for the weekend and no planned shut downs.
