another grand morning early start plans made for shallow water session on flood tide. launched ok, another boat lurking off shore, with a small window before flood went outside cattersea for some mackerel, found not seals but boat following us. few mackerel caught,again near bottom ,not mid water. last part of slack 2 ling to mackerel flapper. went to "banker" mark at start of flood, 2 drifts, 6 keepers plenty of goldfish mops really showing habitat effect on colouring. as ian said in his post, buggered off due to "me and my shadow, drifting over marks I know" went back "up north" to end trip out. another 6 keepers, near bouy, 12 cod, 2 ling & mackerel. 1 stop on soft for mackerel -still not showing. shads better than bait to-day. F.a.o bri, andy had 3-hrs south for 1 fish, back up neare home & ended up with 21, shads again. he tried mussel but to no effect.
