Having turned myself completely insane from working too many hours lately, I escaped the confines of the house for about an hour yesterday evening for a spot of 'tackle testing'. Everywhere is "just down the road" here so it wasn't long before I was fishing. I just jammed a couple of lures in my pockets so that I wouldn't mess around. Second cast over some rocky ground and I was in to a bass. 5 seconds later it was off again, and I actually blame the rod because it felt so much more powerful than I'm used to. Felt like it's stiffness pulled the hook.

Within a few more casts I'd discovered that I was stood in front of a shoal of mackerel. I had 2 on a 90mm lure and then as the light began to go I had 2 scad - first of the year. A quick wander to some lumpier ground for a few casts had me in to a pollack. Not the monster bass I'd hoped for, but another species.

Nice to be out again anyway, even if it was only brief.

I do envy your location mate, some nice marks around you. Shame on losing the fish, what rod were you using??

Will be able to tell you more soon Matt. It's actually a really, really good rod, just a bit stiffer than I'm used to - very much like a Supermix. I'll be out again over the next couple of days so fingers crossed for a few more fish then.
