After a cuppa and picking up some different gear we quickly drove down to Newborough to catch the last hour of the flood and a couple of hours down again. As we arrived a couple of people were leaving which didn’t look to good but on arrival we spotted a few people fishing into the surf but they seemed to be having a lot of problems with weed – here we go again I thought!
The venue changes dramatically during darkness and i was glad that we’d had an explore a month or so ago so we walking about a hundred yards or so to the right of the car park and launched our big crab baits into a gully about 80 yards out.
The fishing was slow with only small bites on our large hooks until at the height of the tide Wendy caught this fat little Flounder.
The sky was perfectly clear with not a cloud in sight and the lack of lighting anywhere meant that we could see every star, it was magnificent.
Anyway back to the fishing. The weed where we were didn’t seem to materialise but I was still lacking any fish so on the last cast I plopped a cast in short, just to see if there were any smaller fish playing in the surf and hooked into this tiny school Bass. Finally!
Happy that we’d both caught fish we packed up and made our way back to the cottage – another late night but worth it for the views alone! We’ll definitely fish hear again, a rising tide into darkness – fantastic.
