Bought fresh worms on Tuesday got back home then realised we were going out for a meal with friends that night, ho sugar (or something like that). My next free night Thursday so rearranged with my mate to fish either Whitby pier or Upgang. Been getting dizzy spells last couple of days so the other half forced me to the docs this morn. Not good news an inner ear infection requiring medication with strict instructions that I can't drive for a few days till the pills take effect and no alcohol whilst I'm on them (so it's a dry Christmas and New Year). Yet another rethink, my other half said she'd drop us off and pick us back up after Emmerdale so it was a trip to Marske then. We fished a couple of hours up and two and a half down. I had a flounder first cast then nothing till nearly two hours down. Just over half an hour before we packed up we started getting a few bites. I had another flounder and my mate had two schoolie bass. Judging by the severity of the bites we missed I think they could have been schoolies as well. We could see that there were some lads fishing along towards the stray, a guy walking along the beach said one of them had two decent codling. It was a pleasant night to be out even if the sea was flat calm.
