French success at last

Postby Maerig the hunter » Sat Aug 24, 2019 12:56 pm

Just got back from my annual month in France doing up the house but managed to get a couple of hours down at the top secret mark a hundred metres to the left of the big rock on Lodonnec beach in south brittany near Loctudy. :lol:
Image
I dig lug on low tide, mentaally mark the spot and fish over the hole as the tide comes up to high. :think:
First cast a schoolie.Second cast a thumper and a big fight to pull in this gilt head bream of 55cm which weighed in at a few drams under 3 kilos.
Had to go straight back to the house to show the family and force them to eat it :dance:
End of all comments such as "it'd be cheaper to nip down the fish market and buy one" etc :naughty:

See y'all at Perch :wave:
2019 species: Whiting, bass flounder, 6 1/2lb gilt bream Oh Yes what a beaut monsieur! :dance:

Yeah won't be equalling that in a hurry. Great fight from an old fish. And the bream gave a good account of itself also :lol: :lol:

That's a cracker maerig!! You can't get fresher straight out of the sea :thumbsup:. Had 1 a few years ago on St Catherines breakwater Jersey, my rod tip was just vibrating an brought a 2lb gilt head in. I love using blowlug as there full of juice as your speciman bream found out :D
Getting out fishing is good for the soul, catching is a bonus
