Kev, myself, Tom Phillips, Gary Aubert, Paul Butel, Darren Green and his missus Star attacked St Catherines tonight.
Faced with gin clear sea and low wind (was this Jersey ?) it started out quite tough.
Darren had a float rig out whilst he was jigging and soon the float slid away. A nice fish but then quiet again for some while.
I started fishing tiny xlayer to a 1/8oz megabass head and was soon into fish. I turned to see Darren into a fish also.
Laid side by side, fish no 2 and 3.
Then, a short run of fish, all taken on the drop to light jigheads.
Star with a nice pollack taken on Gulp ragworm.
Megabass head, megabass xlayer tiny. Accounted for 9 of my 14 fish tonight.
As the tide dropped away, Tom Phillips moved down the end to take 3 Pollack to 1.5lb. Paul and Kev moved around to the adjacent reef and I started to play from the slipway. Shortly afterwards, we all regrouped. It started to get crazy as Paul and I rigged to take Grasdos (smelt).
5 fish fell to my super LRF rig. 3lb fluorocarbon leader, size 14 hook, and my secret weapon enjoyed it's first outing. Can you see the SP ? Rigged Carolina carrying only 1.1g the fish were smashing into me whilst everyone looked on in amazement. I was pretty stunned too as they just kept coming. Absolutely incredible fun.
A change is as good as a rest. Kev with a xlayer caught Pout. He had Pollack too.
An absolutely brilliant night for me. Totally enjoyed it. We are there tomorrow from 7:15 -7:30'ish if anyone fancies some really fine action and fun.
Insane, that's the word. But we love it.
