Sunny Morecambe 7/4/13

Postby Big Kev » Mon Apr 08, 2013 9:22 am

Fancied another crack at the plaice,even though the tide was a bit too big for the mark,but i was still confident of some action.Myself and Mick got there just after 1pm expecting to see a few lads already out from the Broadway,but we were first on the scene,so we got sorted and made our way out.It was`nt long before more rods joined us,and given the weather i thought it would be busier.
I put out an up n over wishbone rig,with size 1/0 hooks loaded with frozen black lug,and took a decent plaice on my first chuck...

Soon followed by a flounder...
Image
Nice to meet Ste and his mate,who were also catching regularly...
Image
Mick takes his first plaice of the year...
Image
Image
Still room for a few more...
Image
Final fish shot,as we could`nt break the 2lb barrier today...
Image
Sport was pretty good until an hour before low,when due to the biggish tide,the channel emptied out far too much,meaning a wait of @ 2 1/2 hours before we could start again...
Image
Once the flood got underway properly,the fish were back on the feed,though the water was coming in too quickly for comfort...we had around 3/4 hour before we called it.....cracking day to be out with some good sport...i ended with 6 flounder and 5 plaice...Mick had similar...we shall return on a neap tide.......nice to finally meet Dave (Rushy) who came down to see what was coming out...his help/info about the fishing around Morecambe is spot on......walking out by the boats is obviously very muddy,so you are advised to stick to the obvious mussel beds....sounds obvious,but a few lads tried the former and 2 of them lost their wellies...they got out ok and it was a laugh,but it could have been worse,as is the case at Seaforth....i`ll never understand why anglers take chances :roll:

Well done kev and the lads, good sesh, gives everyone the appetite to get out there and wet yer line. Just one thing, as Kev rightly points out about safety, Morecambe bay can be the most delightful place to fish, particularly on a summers day, but be aware there are several areas where there is very deep mud and quicksand about especially near the arnside, greenod areas. Morecambe itself, isnt too bad, if you want to fish at low water, then stick to the musselbeds, grosvener and broadway skeers. If you dont know the area you want to fish in, then its worth the extra ten minutes on your journey time to call in at gerry's fishing tackle shop for advice, and he will put you right. always fish with others and NEVER EVER, go on your own at night at low water.

good session there lads . seems to be a lot more flounder showing now but still good numbers of decent plaice. that tide seems to take ages to come in though.

Yeah it`s a learning curve for me in that area....next trip up will try to make a better day of it starting off either side of high at Throbshaw Point before getting down to the Broadway or right side of the jetty for the mid ebb :idea:

Last fished there about 4 years ago when we were frustrated by the mullet topping out in front of us. My mates dad ended up on his back in the mud much to our amusement!
Fishing the NWSA two dayer at west beach over the weekend of 20/21st, really looking forward to it now as there seems to be plenty about

I've been promising myself to go there after a few plaice for the last few years, but never seem to have got around to it.
What a good do. :clap:
