It’s been a while but finally managed to get out for a lure session with my pal Nobby on Sunday. Headed down to Dorset early afternoon with plan to fish the flood with high water around 9pm. Finally got there after a bit of a marathon trek in the car and then the usual hike round the foreshore.
Conditions were quite bright but the water was pretty murky with plenty of weed washed up – on the face of it things looked good but to be honest it was a hard slog… neither of us having a sniff all afternoon despite trying just about every lure in our boxes.
As we hit the evening there was a distinct change in the weather with the water chopping up as the tide really started to flood towards high water and we were saved a blank when Nobby managed to land a small bass of maybe a couple of pounds. Despite my best efforts it wasn’t happening for me!
Here’s your man playing his fish…
…and here he is victorious with his bass!
So, not a huge amount of action on the fish front but still good to get out after a frustrating summer fishing-wise to date. Will be putting that right early September when off to Cornwall for a week trying to get amongst the fish!
Until next time…
