Nice one Keith! I think eventually I'll have to get over and join you all on one of these bumbles!

Thanks for all the hard work you put into organising the event Keith, and it was good to get out with some other like minded lure fisherman. The Cake was good as well -- thanks Annette.

This was the venue! http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?t=h&hl=en-GB&ie=UTF8&ll=49.174598,-2.12457&spn=0.014028,0.038581&z=15

You can walk to the castle at low water, but the tide cuts it off from about 3 hours before high. IN which case you can get the 'Puddleducks' over to it (kind of amphibious people carriers). As you look at the image, the compass points are correct, and the wind was pummelling in from the west, making it very tricky to fish that side. Chris (Squid) stuck it out into the teeth of it though, and it paid off for him.

It is an impressive catch seeing it was all on lures, if you just think about that for a second you'll appreciate what is being achieved here, well done to all of you.

My first fish was about a pound and a bit (not in the photos, Jamo should have one though). It followed the XLayer over a ledge below me into about 2ft of water, I stopped the lure and it nailed it. Great stuff.

When I eventually found the fish I missed so many bites, at one point one a cast, and lost a couple of fish. One packet of Emeraude XLayers toasted. Crazy fun.

Guys:

I've updated the article with Callums fish and 1 more shot of Paul B. I've added some more comment too.
JP informs me his web is down but I'll get any missing pics into the article asap.

Paul:

Crazy fun indeed. When it starts firing it's nuts eh. I missed at least 3 unmissable bites again.
