After a decent few days fishing with my mate Ballast, with plenty of Cod to about 6lb plus Mackerel, Whiting and a Gurnard, I decided to head out once again, this time on my own (Ballast being grounded by his Mrs for fishing on their Wedding Anniversary, he's 70 by the way).
This high pressure has been keeping the North sea nice and flat and with light winds, perfect for me. But it isn't going to last.
Visibility this morning was about a mile, so I thought I'd give the Bass and Pollock a go on light tackle over a Reef a couple of hundred yards off shore. After loading up and dragging the boat down to the beach, I launched and was over the mark in minutes. Because I wasn't going far or fast I didn't even haul the wheels up. Anyway after a couple of minutes fishing, bang, no not a fish, but the bloody Fog, visibility went from about a mile to less than a hundred yards. The land just disappeared along with all my points of reference.
I wasn't worried, as I was only a couple of hundred yards off shore, I could hear people on the beach and the road nearby. Also I've got GPS on my FishFinder, VHF radio and even on my mobile, with my Launch point marked.
So after a couple of drifts using my Electronic, I kept missing the point I want to go over, I've called it a day for now.
