Pier palaver!

Another trip to the pier, well a different one actually, last night. This one fishes well on the ebb for School Bass, Pollock and Mackerel, normally, and on arrival we saw one or two Bass being lifted onto the Pier. Great! or so we thought..to be honest it turned out to be a bit of a struggle. Despite the great number of fish that were obviously present, and we could see them darting about in the current, for some reason they seemed reluctant to take our offerings. Trying many different lures and techniques of presenting it to them, OTD, Swinging, drifting..a few bangs and taps, and I managed one reasonable, Pollock ( for the venue ), but the promise wasn’t fulfilled, and it turned out to be rather a stuggle. It was busy with Anglers all trying similar things, so maybe that was spooking them, and plus the wind was horrendous yet again, making presentation difficult to say the least. Excuses..
One of my mates did a bit better with a 3 species slam, Mackerel, Pollock, and Bass, so well done to him. The wind is still blowing, strongly, it’s June for goodness sake!! Still I suppose it makes it all the more rewarding when we do catch in spite of the conditions, but it’s nice to have things easy once in a while!
