The famous last cast

Postby Tom » Sun May 13, 2018 9:27 am

I have been fishing on the shallow beaches for a change and to see if I could pull off catching my first Bass or S Trout. After a brace of small flounders, a few blanks, one near injury castarophe with Paul. I got there :D

Image

It was roughly 2lb and 50cm long (using my pb Plaice as a reference)

The water was upto my reels and I had no line on my rod left. That and I had to get going. Glaring at the rod tips.. suddenly great knocks four times. The fight was phenomenal. Thinking this is going to be a huge plaice, as it shook everywhere. Then 20yds in I saw its back and I tried to remain calm. Took up line slowly, kept rod high. It stayed at 10yds for what felt like ages (heart in mouth the whole time). Then finally came to my feet!

It was lip hooked and I splashed water over its gills a few times. Released it by tail like Lewis did on his video. Then it shot off like I was watching blue planet.

A day to remember :dance:
