At last the 16th arrived and I was bursting to get going. In all since Wednesday I've managed 4 good sessions with a great return; 16 fish in total. Best session was a dawn raid from the shore on Thurs with six fish to wtd lures and just as many lost. Last night one of the lads with me managed a 74cm fish on a soft plastic on a boat session. One of the fish I had was followed to the top by another, much larger fish. As it went on several runs close to the boat, we could see the other fish darting around it trying to take the soft lure from its jaws; it didn't stop until we put the net in the water to land the fish. Another unusual sight this morning was on the way back from a shore session. As I walked back along the shingle beach I spotted a bass basking in the water, inches from the shore. Any closer and it would have been up on the beach itself. Well anyway here are a few pics...
