Nipped into Poole to pick up bait from Andy at 7:45
Down to Cobb's and off for the 8:30 lift.
Martin called the bridge operator to let him know we'd like an 8:30 bridge lift please.
Only to be told: No 8:30 lift today sir !
Oh well ! tied up to a pontoon, kettle on, ate one of my baguettes.
Chucked lines out but only weed.
Serenity came past just after 9 with the Radar down and 2 smug faces. ( Bridge lift not needed )
9:30 and up went the bridge and off we went.
Over to the Secret Plaice mark to join lots of other boats.
At one time there were 4 of us club boats quite close together.
We had a very good day's fishing with numerous plaice. Some of them were keepers.
I was " chuffed " with this one at 2lbs 14oz
We had Gurnard, Plaice, Martin had a Brill and some mackerel that took his bait as he reeled in.
We both had very small smooth hounds too.
So yet again I'd like to thank Martin for being a great skipper and host and point out that there was a crew space there which wasn't taken so anyone who thought about it but didn't . . . . . . . You dipped out ! ! !
