Forecast looked good for sunday through tuesday, checked the beach sunday morning, I could have walked to Mayor just jumping from boat to boat. So I worked sunday and went out this morning and had the place to myself.
Paddled to about the 15 m mark and had a couple of drifts, not action went to another spot and picked up a reasonable gurnard. Fished for another hour with the odd bite but nothing hooked up.
The wind finally made it past 5 kts and I was able to get a bit of a drift on.
Picked up a Kw then a snap then a trevor in the next 15 mins.
Figured my next two would be a JD and a blue cod but I was wrong, two more snaps then another trev and another snap, so much for getting a box set! But 7 fish in half an hour, I wasn't complaining.
Put the last snap and the second trev back for next time, there was already enough filleting to be done.
Wind had switched to offshore for the paddle home, yeh |(
