At last I've been able to get downstream to the mullet grounds in the river boat and experience some success.
The day started, in the usual mud flats swim, with a very frustrating bumped fish at the landing net but sightings of fish continued and eventually this nice plump thick-lip made it to the boat .
I did explore some alternative swims but struggled to find any fish showing so as the tide turned , headed back upstream to a stone retaining wall that is gradually covered as the tide floods.
It's one of my 'banker' spots and it didn't disappoint today. A few minutes after feeding and fishing had commenced , the odd tell tale whelm appeared just feet from the boat hull, followed shortly by an enquiry at the bait 'nailing' the float in the process.
A small mullet of maybe a pound was the result and a nice way to finish the session before heading back up to the mooring.
