17th April Caldy

Postby tonylfc » Thu Apr 17, 2008 6:26 pm

Met bootsy straight off nights to fish the incoming tide. Planned to walk out and fish the hour and half of flood. We had frozen suey and a bit of rag.

Walked out to meet water, and it raced us back almost at walking pace. So settled up against the bottom of the boulders.


Water seemed to be a lot higher than we had expected :roll:


Bootsy was in with a 1-7-8 Flounder :D


And also had a little Plaice, returned to water before a photo.

Packed up before high water as we both on nights again.

I blanked :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :lol:

Nice one, my best mate, Nick, and my dad, Mike, and I were there the evening before. Started off really well for Nick and I, 2 really decent plaice (c. 2lb?) on the incoming after casting from about 150 yards out and walking back with the tide.

Dad blanked on the 'plaice run', must have been especially galling since it was him who introduced us both to fishing about 30 years ago! Anyway, a couple of hours later a c.1lb dab cheered him up a bit

Strangely, we got absolutely nothing else at all until we departed about an hour and a half after high water.

Much prettier than our usual venue of New Brighton too, although I kind of missed the malevolent stares we usually get from the hormonally-challenged 'handbrake-turners' when returning to the car at the end of a session. A car-load of 'yoofs' did turn up for 20 minutes whilst we were fishing, but they'd evidently just nipped down to covertly smoke a spliff, and were certainly not in the mood to cause any aggro, bless 'em...

Well in Gents :)
It has always been my private conviction that any man who pits his intelligence against a fish and loses has it coming.
