Well, its the time of year where quite a few of us start to lose the urge to go plugging.......big swells/gales/colder water/short days don't help either :lol:
Me, I plug right through the year, hiding from the SWesterly swells and winds if possible, looking for new marks but then returning to your fav haunts when the weather is good :lol: :lol: swop those shitey trebles and split rings, turn the braid around on the reels, replenish lure stocks and fix those leaky waders :geek:
I'll be going out every weekend, regardless of weather (there's always somewhere to fish) and always good to make sure that cag is still working :eek: company is always welcome :cool: :D :cool:


So, how do you lot keep yourself sane?

I need to have some more enthusiasm like you and you father and maybe I would catch more fish, Lewisman has always said that you have to put in the time to be rewarded and he is right, I just find it hard sometimes to motivate myself when blanking becomes the norm, wind blows so hard you can’t cast and the rain soaks you to the bone !!! Keeping myself sane at the moment is being able to read good threads and posts and try to learn new things from you more experienced guys !!!!!

I like using small softies (white usually) under the lights on our harbours for small pollack. A 3lb'er would be a monster, usually about 1.5lb. I also like float fishing a fionk or small sandeel on a through action carp rod or spinning rod for the pollack at the same venues, its fun and I have fluked a couple of bass in the past on the float, 6lb being the best.
