Rogers rd 7/5/17

Filled my boots at rogers rd on sunday.The sea was the flatest it's been for a while.(On the weekend anyway, it's quite often flat during the week when I'm working!). Good old nuclear chicken landed 5 snapper in no time, another couple on the strayline and I was back on the beach at 8:30. IMAG0812.j...

Rogers rd 5/6/16

On the water just after 7am, was a little brisk but paddling soon warms you up. Went out to about 8m and started my drift, the trusty old nuclear chicken my weapon of choice.
