Leasowe Sat 20th April 2019 DaveM

With the recent good weather decided on a session after Plaice at Leasowe over high water.
Started when the sea was about 150m from the sea wall.

Was trying out a new rig based on a loop rig but only one 4ft hook snood just above the lead which is clipped up about 8 inches on a swivel above a tension spring creates a short stream lined rig with large loop of line.

First cast resulted in a plaice. Well chuffed the rig worked.

I was also experimenting using hair rigged lug on a ghost rig to try to avoid deep hooking.
The good news is the rig worked and caught fish. Unfortunatley it did not as planned avoid deep hooking.

Once on the sea wall I had a few more fish (flounder and plaice) which all fell to my spinning rod lobbed 20yds into the gutter rather than my AFAW 4+bait cast further out.

Final tally 3 Plaice and 3 flounder.
Nice to be out, looking forward to the next session already.
