    SAGE always trying...... some say very trying !!!!!

    well sunday night saw another trip north near craster, hoping to catch fish after two blanks, it was an ebbing tide under darkness and a deep water rock mark, there was a small swell but it lacked in colour

    with sean ( bow 1 ) to keep me company we arrived about 1:1/2 before slack water and were soon in the water, we tried various combinations of bait..the usual mixes of crab, mussel, razor, cart and runnydown..

    no fish came till after slack water...sean was the first to connect with a nice fresh run 3 1/2 lber... then another not long after.... twins i think they were....i was still blanking again...

    but a change of trace baited with cart and 3 nice fat runnydown resulted in the tell tale tap tap tap... lifting the rod into the bite resulted in a nice hook up and from the depths came a small mop maybe just over the lb mark ... it was easily swung up the 1oft rock ledge we were fishing from... blank saved and another one for the cod challange...

    a long single hook pulley rig with a rottom bottom was the trace i used and the bait was cart and worm..
    thats me on 10 now

    seans fish also took the same if i remember right... it seemed that runnydown was the bait they wanted..
    it was the same as last week from the same mark, when the third musketeer of a gang ..Alan had 3 good fish for about 19lb all preferring a cocktail with worm as the common denominator..
