Half the long walk.....

Postby Steve Duffy » Wed May 24, 2017 6:07 pm

The plan was to do the long walk with Ian and Roy.Ian and Roy put on their scuba gear and set off across the channel.I stood back to watch.It was close,with the water coming to within 2 inches of the top of Ians waders.By the time I got across they were well down the bank so I decided to only do half the walk.They both had a hound while I missed 2 savage bites.To save the blank I rigged up with a urfe ready pyramid lead.It saved the day.I had a load of dabs and a nice fat 38cm Plaice.Today showed why it is so important to carry a compass or GPS.Before I'd walked half way back a sea fog rolled in.You could not see a thing.Very dangerous if you were still out there fishing.Be prepared.

That mist certainly comes in quick, some good advise there Steve. I know I'd seen the windmills get covered so I took a bearing a bit earlier.

It's interesting that you got smoothound type bites earlier on, it must be worth dropping short a few times just to try it. :think:
