We were going to try for bass yesterday, it being a late evening high tide. The strong SW wind would have made it uncomfortable though, so I took the lazy option and walked 10 minutes down to the mullet spot.
My mate Bazza had a few this morning so I was hopeful that we had a good chance.
Cocksy and his daughter were already there catching micro bass and tiny mullet. The pool looked devoid of anything sizeable, no swirls or bow waves.
I sat in the sun watching and let them all get on with it.
After about half an hour Ga Ga hooked in to a decent mullet on the spinner, totally out of the blue in previously lifeless water. Unfortunately it dropped off at the net but a good sign. She kept plugging away and a while later the same thing happened, this one eventually netted after a decent scrap.
I was waiting for the first push of the tide which normally sees lots of fish appear at this spot. But not tonight, just the occasional fish and that was it. Unpredictable sods. Plenty of small stuff though.
Cocksy did have a nice flounder, unusual to see a decent one here these days unfortunately. Hopefully a sign of things to come.
I had a few casts before walking up to the bridge to admire the sunset.
A lovely evening.
