25/9/15 Rock And Mussel
Dave wanted to catch something to take home to eat as his girlfriend is a bit of a 'dab hand' when it comes to the culinary arts so, we hatched a plan.
Initially we targeted the reef at mark No.5 with soft plastic lures fished vertically and an array of wrasse, bass, a nice cod and even a greedy black bream took a shine to a 'swat shad'.
The cod was obviously kept for the pot, but we thought it would be nice to catch something to keep it company so , for the afternoon, we headed to a nearby area that has been brimming with plaice of late.
Drifting with a mix of rag, and frozen black lug attached to a selection of 'bling' we soon collected a decent box of plaice to 2 1/2lb with the lightly hooked specimens being returned.
A thoroughly enjoyable mixed days fishing.
