I tried at the harbour again last night with my youngest Martin. Not a great deal to report on the lrf front, just about 3 takes otd which the fish managed to free themselves each time. However, I had my RLSD with me, and stuck on a gulp sandeel with a 10gm jighead. At first I left it for periods of a couple of minutes deadstick, while using my lrf rod. Next time I picked up the heavy rod, gave it a couple of lifts and kept in control of the weight back down, there was an almighty bite at the other end (even I couldn't have missed it, oh i did Doh!). I reeled it back in, and the last 1.5" had been bitten clean off. I put a new eel on (shortened this time) and continued getting plenty of otd takes each time resulting in nothing? Finally, on a smaller take I managed to catch a pollock, probably about 1lb, which fell off coming up the wall.

I'm sure the strong bites earlier weren't pollock. Might have another go again tonight, but this time put a second hook at the eels rear end.

Sounds like an interesting session Gary despite not scoring. Look forward to hearing about the results from your modified tactics !!

At least you were getting bites, Gary - more than me recently! Are you hoping the "big" bites were from the bass?

Getting the fishing time in is the key Gary, and you will have your rewards soon !

Could be Mark, there were certainly a lot less pollock around. On the plus side, I saw 3 seperate shoals of mullet cruising into the harbour about 30 fish in each group.

Gary I was at Bonne Nuit last night and had quite a few good bites but blanked, think I did see a squid rising from the deep.
