You know when your planning your next outing & think this could be the day, well
set up north of the kart track near the slipway, lovely day & we had just bought a
camping stove to fry up some bacon sarnies.
Baited up & cast in as soon as I could reach the breakers.
After about an hour I pulled one rod in but it snagged & broke the braid :banghead:
tied it up to another rig but with no shock leader I could only do a 40 yrd lob, but
no sooner has it went in water there was a caller, reeled in & tubby was on the end.

new bait on & back out, I pulled in another rod & just as I was starting to bait it, the
rod that I had just put back in bent right over, struck into it and immediately felt it
doing a runner (maybe an hound) after about 5 mins it broke the surface & it was a
cracking silver, there was no way I could lift it up the wall, so guided it toward the slip
& it was landed about 15 mins before high.

At 56 cm & 3 lb 8 oz it was a PB.

Into the ebb & another tub came out, a bit bigger than the first.

An hour into the ebb had a nice knock & the 3rd species of the day, a starry pup

A super day & to top it off reeling in to pack up & I retrieved my lost rig and leader :yeah2:
