December topwater action
December came and with good weather too, this opened up new opportunities to fish a new part of the season from the boat which was exciting. I had searched out some new ground with my friend Marcus which was his first trip in my boat.
So after some epic fishing in August unfortunately I wasn’t able to get out for quite a while. But being the true friend I am and with some perfect weather for the boat I lent it to Tim for as long as he wanted while I couldn’t get out. He continued to improvise what we had learned landing numerous 70cm+ fish to 75cm as well as witnessing something I have only dreamed of…
The ”Pinnacle” of fishing…
So that’s a load of crap but it makes for a funny title anyway. I’ll follow on from my last post and so onto 2017. I didn’t fish much, at all early last season. I actually bought a fly rod and started targeting mullet. Wow! Isn’t that addictive! Have to say visual fishing for me probably is the ”Pinnacle” of fishing, I don’t think I’ll enjoy anything as much as that style. If you don’t see them eat it, it don’t count!
I’ll start writing again here… and where my new addiction has come from, Surface fishing! I had missed most of August and September that year but with holiday still to take I gambled on a booking a week off with the intention to fish like mad.
The Fiiish crazy sandeel… This shouldn’t really surprise me and to be fair it’s not so much about the lure as the fish. But on it’s day the Crazy sandeel showed me ”how” it was done and I was taught another lesson on the boat. This was in June and I had only just started to use a fish finder.
Time to write…
I feel bad for neglecting my blog this year, I knew it wasn’t going to be an ordinary year and that things would have to be sacrificed. One was my fishing time and the other was finding time to keep my blog updated with anything interesting I may encounter when I did get out. Well I’ve hardly done any shore fishing this year due to work commitments and have zero to write about in that respect unfortunately but I have been getting out on my SIB when I can and it has been very interesting in that respect. So hopefully over winter I’ll be able to find the time to catch up on some of my experiences. Continue reading

Kicking the season off
It’s been a slow start to the year, normally the early season is my favourite time and normally most productive… Sea temps where good early on but took a while to get upto 12 which can happen in a couple weeks with a heatwave. Instead the temps stayed down and it took a month to reach this.
2015 was a funny year, I started slow and focused my time on my work. I didn’t want to put as much time into night sessions as I did the year before as it was just to grueling and planned to get maximum usage out of the boat in the day time instead to hopefully get me my fishing fix.
