New Brighton - Low - 7th Feb 2010

Postby joeNeal_71 » Sun Feb 07, 2010 11:07 pm

Went down to Perch Rock this morning but by the time I arrived at about and hour before low it was pretty crowded. Had a quick look around then decided against setting up at one of the remaining tackle graveyard marks. Tide was more or less fully out so I clambered over the rocks at the end of the right hand groyne and walked another 30yrds towards the old New Brighton pier site before setting down. Right behind me was four other people with same idea, three of which I noticed were using boat rods. Interesting concept - still, good to be out I guess :lol:


I had a selection of frozen baits left over from my last outing, mack, squid and some mature black. First few casts with three hook clipped up rig allowed some experimentation at distance with the different baits. Quite for first hour then bites began to appear just after tide started turning. Missed first two bites then next cast hooked up with a plump little 5 bearded rockling, falling to lug tipped with squid. My first one of these ever, had several green slug variety from Mersey before now including one several weeks back but never caught orange before. New fish for my personal species count taking 2010 tally up to 6 so far (dab, flounder, coding, whiting, 3b rockling, 5b rockling).


Bites continued on next cast, missed one then connected again shortly after. This time it was a tasty little dab with dark mottled patches on it's back. This also had some similar patches on it's white underside as well which I have not seen before. Again, the fish took lug tipped with squid. However, not much interest with mack or plain squid all session.


Was hoping to catch a few more dabs for the pan as they are one of my favourite fish, very good eating IMHO but sadly it was not to be. After a fairly brisk spell of around 45 mins, I then spent the last couple of hours sat watching boats come in with only one more slight rattle late on.

Cheers lads, I never thought of trying this spot before now but think it could be a good alternative to the usual 'between the two groynes' at perch rock. A good cast appeared to be getting straight into the deep channel, absolutely no combat fishing with loads of free space on this stretch and totally snag free :D

Just need a few more fish to be on a winner :lol: :lol: :lol:
