Last day of the school holiday for half term yesterday so made the missus come home on time and after a while decided I would head for the cliffs as I have tried most other places already with no success.

After a serious bit of "wintry shower" it looked a bit dodgy...



But it had passed and was dumping it's load at sea:



Our cliffs are gorgeous in the late afternoon sunlight:



This is the mark from the top:



Tried pulling through this nice gully for a rockie or bass. Nowt:



tried flicking and twitching round these pinnacles. I'd estimate the water was about 30ft deep in front of the close on and between them as the lure went down a long way:



Nothing there either.

After an hour or so wondering about the rocks and chucking lures about with not so much as a follow that I could see I started the hike back up.

noticed the light on the lure looked nice so I took a pic:



Well that wasn't a success but on the plus side the cycling to work must be helping as I was still alive and able to walk when I got to the top and also this morning!!

I was then tempted into a bait session in the evening and that was a waste of time as well. 5 marks and all I got was a double shot on the pennel rig while bass fishing. They were the wrong colour though.



I even tried the harbour on the way home with the light stuff but I got bored quick as it was cold and I couldn't really be bothered with a half hearted effort so I went home fishless.

back to work next week :sad:

Maybe tomorrow night!!

You would be surprised what a 6oz rockling can get in it's gob!! Both hooks of an 8/0 pennell is quite normal if you don't pick up the bite. I was on 5/0 pennel as I was on verm which is harder to thread on an 8/0.
