Well I " forced " myself to get out of bed and get motivated to go fishing!😴😴

First stop a fuel up and then I'm off out to chosen area see whats about.

No whiting, just doggies, straps and couple of pouting was all I could find.

Was watching a big flock of seagulls diving and coming towards the boat to within about 20 yards, catching whitebait I think.

Could see fish swirling on the surface , put down maccie feathers but no good  so changed to sabikis and bingo!!!!

I caught around 60 bass , it was like catching mackerel as the bass were coming up 3 or 4 on hooks at a time, the biggest was about 1.5lb , no biggies but what fantastic sport was had! .......And then it just stopped and not another fish caught!!

Back in for 3.30 and a wash down......worth getting up after all!😁

Need to get a light spinning setup out and flick small sidewinder type lures. Al and I have done that a couple of times this winter, superb sport. Especially when the hit on the surface.

Only had the heavier gear available Rob, what surprised me was that they wouldn't  take feathers that had silver foil in them!

Whatever the gulls were taking were very small and silver.
