    I decided on a local session yesterday afternoon to kill a few hours. Having never really done a lot of shore fishing locally at this time of year I wasnt too confident but there was a nice long range swell with a bit of colour in the water so I thought I might get something.

    Started off 3 hours down. First cast produced an undersize cod , followed by a keeper


    Next cast I got a cracking slackliner and this turned out to be a good sized eel


    As the gulley started to empty we made a short move and it wasnt long before I got another good bite and I was pleased to see my first bass of the year come in. A nice plump fish over 2lb which was returned. Ill be getting the plugs out soon :)


    Next cast another good bite and I struck into a bigger fish which snagged me up. I gave it some slack to see if it would swim it out but in the end I had to go for the break but luckily the rotten bottom did its job and I got the fish, a plump red cod weighing 4lb 8oz. After gutting it had a full soft lobster in its gut.


    After that it went quiet so another move was in order. First cast at the new mark and another codling which was returned. the bites started to become finicky so we called it a day. A cracking days fishing. It just goes to show there is good fishing locally if the conditions are right :)
