Heysham March 2015

Postby mstangler » Sun Mar 15, 2015 12:22 am

Heysham March 2015
With holidays to use up a days fishing was required By Graeme and Paul members of Milnrow Sea Anglers
We picked up some bait from Gerry’s and made our way to our mark at Heysham
High Tide was 4:00 pm and we arrived at the spot with the tide on its way , it was only a small tide of 8 metres but it was making fast and we were soon able to make our last cast from the beach before we had to get onto the rocks
One last cast and I carried my rod to my fishing vantage point on the rocks, whilst tackling up my other rod i noticed a small nod on the rod but didn’t reel in as I wanted to get my other rod out.
After casting I reeled in and it was very heavy but soon the large amounts of weed and litter were showing on the line like a washing line, it didn’t look good. But I could feel something pulling as sure enough there was a fish on, not the Plaice we were targeting but a nice Codling of around 2 and a half pounds what a start. ImageGraeme had a bite and reeled in to more of the same weed by the line full but again a fish , This time a plaice , no monster but the target was showing, ImageBy now my second rod was nodding and although there was a lot of weed there was a fish on or as it happened 2 , 2 nice Plaice. Image
And so it continued for the next 3 hours with double and single shots of plaice some well over the pond mark and a few Dabs as well.
Graems rod had a very good knock and weight as he reeled in to produce a Plaice and cracking Coddling pushing the 3 pound mark.
A neighbouring angler also had a cracking Codling well over the 3 pound markImage
High tide came and the weed stopped for around half an hour and a couple moor Plaice made a show before the weed came back in force. That was it time to pack up and call it a dayImage
We had had a cracking day despite the weed
Baits that worked were Black and blow lug tipped with Squid and a few white rag that we had bought from Gerry’s had caught a few fish as well, rigs were 2 hook flappers with beads and sequins with size 1 hooks , weights 4 oz grippers .
Scores on the doors were 17 Plaice 2 dabs and a Codling to me 14 Plaice 4 dabs and a Codling to Graeme
Great day out and much better than working
