Starr Gate 05 July

Postby Willpower » 06 Jul 2022, 08:39

On the beach with Rowley for 08.30 and soon had baits in the water. As I was off trying to collect some fresh worm I notice that Terry had arrived and was having a chat with Rowley. A little later on I wandered over and had a chat to Terry myself (good excuse for a rest whilst pumping). First fish was a 45cm Bass for me, then followed a schoolie, and another good Bass lost when it the managed to roll over and slip the hook out about 10' from me beaching it. I managed another Bass at 47cm and a Tope pup.
R0wley had a terrific bite which saw him reel like a maniac just to make contact with his weight. The fish then stopped and wouldn't move. As it was only about 50' out, I waded in sliding Rowleys line through my had to see what was going on. I got right to the snood and gave a gentle pull and it came away. Goodness knows what was laying just below my hand, but it wasn't for moving.
Rowley then had a schoolie and what was to be the best fish of the session, a Bass at 55cm. Just before we left the beach, Rowley managed the scabbiest Dab we both had ever seen. Mottle with greeny brown patches and a circular red growth on its underside. Must have been holidaying from Sellafield.
So 4 fish for me and 3 for Rowley - happy days.
