With the wind down to a more manageable level and the driving rain a distant memory, day two saw me back on the beach. Fishing the incoming tide for about half an hour, and then the same after the turn, is typical of my holiday fishing.
I get out every day but just for a short time. Sea fishing is like its coarse counterpart, it’s about being out at the right time and making the most of the opportunity. Generally speaking, an hour over a high tide in the evening is better than four hours fishing an ebbing tide in the day.
It was great to get my holiday angling off the mark and although the bass weren’t big, nevertheless I really enjoyed catching them. From the bite to the retrieve through to returning them back into Barmouth Bay, it’s all good.
By the way, for anyone who is thinking of doing some sea fishing this summer and you’re not aware, there are strict rules regarding removing bass. Put them all back and stay on the right side of the law.
I’ll cover tackle in a blog entry over the next few days, so as they say, watch this space. Bait was frozen lugworm and although I prefer fresh, you have to have what’s available.
