Got all excited when i saw the sea at Whitburn today, nice movement and lots of colour. Went to Souter to park up and looked over the cliffs to be greeted by a big sea with colour but a bit too green for me. Anyway fished close to where i was in the last match for the first 2 hours and never had a bite, moved a bit further north for the rest of the match and got 2 slack liners but no fish! Took 3 reels with new line on and lost all 3 lines, it was tough but looked good enough for a fish or two. Just phoned Ernie the match organiser who informed me that a cod of 1lb 12oz won, which came from Whitburn, which was still thick with colour after the match. Poor weigh in up north again. Talking to the locals and they say it,s been the worst year up there for ages,some blaming the Pipe fish.
