Vale Park 15th Feb

Postby Patriot » Thu Feb 15, 2018 8:22 pm

So with my days off, headed to Vale Park for the late afternoon low tide

Breezy, but dry for a welcome change

Arrived at 2.30pm and fished until 6:15 - low water shortly before 6pm

Bait: Frozen blacks, Squid and some of the crab

Sadly, my first blank at Vale Park. Two rattles late on just after low water, but i suspect crabs

Other than that, baits returned untouched all afternoon

After moaning in the winter league matches about 27cm whiting, would have been most welcome today! :lol: :lol:

Off to the island for a conger chase tomorrow. Hopefully the fishing gods bring me a bit more in the way of fish
Only here for the cod!

Nice day to be out casting.

Perch rock may have treated you better, but I think winter fishing in the day is pants all round. The spring lows in the night can be a blast there, I always go left of the boy now as I've blanked or come close on the right side many times.

I caught my first gudgeon today on the float single mag sz18. That with good sporting roach made a fun afternoon. The wind was blowing though :D

It’s been a tough gig on the river this winter.
Hope you have better luck with the conger Jeff.

This wasn't the Mersey if that wasn't a poor joke. This would be Meols parkfield fishery, it's awesome there. Light rod gudgeon scrapping :thumbsup:

Fished both town hall steps and perch rock over low last sunday. Couple of rattles and that was it. Think the fish have gone on their holidays.
