    Spawney does it again :cheesy:

    Put in mid afternoon in a bit of a coloured sea but as the tide turned the colour dropped away making for favourable conditions. Plenty of fish in the 1 to 3lb bracket and then spawney hooks into this beauty. . .



    I don't think he liked me calling him a SPAWNEY BASS. . . . TRD :laugh:

    morning chaps

    thanks for the kind words, what a night, after missing the previous two evenings when the good weather came late in the day i arranged to meet up with Ian07 & ken for another attempt at the Bass. at 15:00 the wind had gone nw & the sea was taking a bit of chop. we spent an hour drinking coffee & were almost going home. I phoned the coastguard for the latest forecast (nw 3-4 becoming variable). Bassyken was really keen to get on the water so in we went. the water was a little coloured close to shore better further out & we all rolled our favorite lures. we all had some success with school Bass, but I was looking for something better and we moved on. the ebb was going pretty good & I noticed a boil as the tide lifting over a scaur & decided to fish a deep diver past it thinking a decent pollock would be nice as well. put on a Rapala J13 & started to troll down tide in about 23ft, Ken was parallel about 100m closer to shore. because i was going with the tide the take was awesome the rod tip hit the water & the yak's head turned, as soon as i picked it up i new it was a good fish as it took line and really use the tide to give a brilliant fight. as i got it close it looked huge & i was sure this was the double & got really nervous when i saw it only had one of the hooks in its mouth, we were in quite lively water & it took what seemed like an eternity to get it over the net. once safely onboard we headed into some calmer waters for the ceremonial weighing & photo's, with me singing that kylie song "im so lucky, lucky lucky lucky" :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

    the interesting thing for me was, i have previously caught all my bass close to shore in shallow water, this was a new method and certainly worked we went back as the wind had completely gone by now & i had two more in the 2-3lb bracket, before the tide dropped and it all went quiet. we got ashore in the dark again.

    Roll on winter fishing :wink: :canadian: :canadian:

    That was my point Al, just a bit tongue in cheek though. I think Dave needs another name change but we don,t want to alter it at the expense of the leg pulls. Dave quite enjoys it too hence the one fingered salute :laugh:
