It was so good to be out again walking dawn the beach with a lure rod in my hand and the sun shining down on me. I was heading for Graysands just as the tide was starting to flood, as i made my first few casts i looked down into the margins and noticed some silver flashes of small baitfish moving around the freshly submerged seaweed a few feet in front of me. The water was a little coloured but not enough to dampen my confidence, the scene in front of me was so perfect i just had to get a take, i totally forgot that it was still a little early in the year. My choice of lure to start with was big loud and bright for getting maximum attention as I figured that the bass might be preoccupied on peeling crabs. I went for a tideminnow 175 flyer in holographic white. I fished on for a few hours without any sign of a bass as reality hit home that it probably wasnt going to happen yet. At one point just as the lure came into site i noticed four or five fish following, not big about mackerel sort of size, I didn't see what they where. At heighwater just on sunset i got SMASHED, by now id made my way back to westward ho rocks, It was only on for a second and on retrieving my green sandeel feed shallow lure there were some bassy looking scales on the middle treble. That got the blood moving i can tell you. A short while later i got hit again, but unfortunately this turned out to be a mullet of about one and a half pounds hooked in the tail. So in the end i blanked on the bass front witch wasn't really surprising, but iv still had a really good day at the seaside and iv caught the sun. I reckon in a month or so we'll be into them, lets hope the weather holds.
