7/6/13 Hamble.

The River Hamble at mercury marina has been a regular haunt of mine in the past when searching for the elusive mullet. The venue was chosen for this year's first attempt at the specie as it usually produces the goods in the early part of the season.
Unfortunately today , for me at least,that wasn't to be the case however my fishing buddy Dave scored two golden grey mullet around the pound mark , whilst I could only manage a small bass and, a first for me, a tiny smelt which bore a striking resemblance to the Fiiish Minnow soft plastic lure, which I've been using with great success recently for bass.
Thunderstorms and a strong north wind didn't help matters but it made a pleasant change to do some 'simple' fishing.
