well now I've finally managed to get my original forum account online, i thought I'd post up details of my first few sessions of the winter season. First session was a walk round to wills mams over low a couple of weeks back. There was a nice bit of swell running, plenty of colour and a good tide for it. It turned intoa decent session. 5 fish , the biggest 2 being 6lb 5 oz and just over 5lb. Would definitely had more if the weed hadnt been so bad. We just had a small window without the weed and it was a fish a cast in that time. The next night we wet around the staithes area, there wasn't much colour in the water but i managed 4 , a decent stamp mostly around the 3lb mark. most fish were fresh run , while the night before they had been mostly kelpies. The next session involved a trek down boulby. again not a lot of colour and I was well and truly shown how to fish by Paul Garbutt who pulled in 7 to my measly 1. ah well you cant win em all! Then it was back to Staithes , this time i got 2 fish out of one of my favourite holes. My most recent session was last saturday night when I went back round wills mams. I started on the bullnose at High and landed 2 mops, before going for a walk round the bottom. Again weed was a problem but a move of mark paid off and I pulled 4 fish in 4 casts ending up with 6 for the session So not a bad start with 16 fish from 5 sessions and its looking good for the season. Sorry about lack of pics!
