    With Mike busy with Dinosaurs and the gruesome twosome on girlfriend duty it was a sesssion on my own down Goldsborough this evening. Myself and Mike had been there last night for only a couple of fish, but something told me to go back.

    What I noted last night was that there was only 2 casts where I got my rigs back, and on those 2 casts I caught fish. On some of the other casts I had bites but ended up fast solid and loosing lots of line. Having thought about things today I came to the conclusion there had been more fish there than we thought and it was the probably a mix of wind and tide produced lots of snags.

    Tonight was a different story. I fished the last 2 hours of ebb and first hour of the flood tide. The tide Ebbed further, the wind was less evident, I never lost a trace, and the fish came out to play. First cast I had one hell of a bite that never came back. When I wound in I had a half chewed rockling on the hook which had obviously been in a big fishes mouth.

    From then on it was a cod a cast, with the exception of 2 casts, one of which I never fastened my snap swivel shut and when I wound in the snood had come off. But on the very next cast I caught my biggest fish of the night on stinking cart, and would you believe it, the stupid thing had my lost snood in its mouth with the hook right in its stomach.

    My total for the night was 8 with the biggest going 7lb 8 ounces. It was a bit scary down there on my own as your always frightened you fall and get stuck down there. But life's to short to worry too much about these things, lifes for fishing after all.

    again well done son, i know what you mean about scary down there on your own, ive spent many a night down there on me todd, sometimes its the noises you can here that sh i t you up, but that place is a massive rock fall danger nowadays, and then theres the big black cat that some have seen mooching around there.

    but the worst danger is when some clumsy numpty angler, empties his full spool of line off his reel all the way back up the cliff, leaving a life threatning, tripping hazzard for the next angler down there (me), to do a full 360 a r s e over tit roll :yes: , and survive it. now i wonder who left such a hazzard :suspious: :suspious:

    Nice one Glenn. I could never understand why you can fish a spot sometimes on a slack tide and lose every rig, then go back when the tide is screaming through and hardly lose any! Thats a fine 7.5lber too.
    Lobbers made a good point though, it,s not the black panther or pad pad you should be worried about :whistle: If I went down there and you were there I would be crapping it :laugh: I like the way you fired a warning shot across the bows of any would be tresspassers by including the murderous flask in your fish pic :surprise: :surprise: :wounded: :death:

    Yeh its certainly the case Ray, what its all about I dont know. Seem to get a lot of pull in the mouth of the hole at Goldsborough when you fish off the corner. You either catch fish or loose all your gear.
