Nice one Whisper, lol.

I had the Classic cigars but no Des records, that's probably where I'm going wrong....

They were feeding on Small White Bait apparently..but were breaching and surging right on the Beach.
Ive seen it happen before and then there were Bass attacking them from below...we caught some good sized fish using the live bait method mentioned
....The trick is letting the fish run,and NOT striking,giving them time to turn and swallow the Mackerel..before you set the Hook...something I learned the hard way!

I wish, made my lot laugh when they watched it. Especially in this modern PC world my kids have never seen a cigar advert yet I smoke Classic cigars all the time......

Chucking it down here this morning, on the upside we were skiing until 8 pm last night and the kids didn't come in from fishing until 11 ...

Happy days

Tin of cheap cat food with the label removed so its shiney & a few holes punched in the side makes good pot bait if your leaving them down a few days .

Almost the end of our two weeks but I'm making a mental note for next year to salt some mackerel heads and have a cat with a few holes punched in it for bait....! Cheers

I just hope that there's enough room in the pot, I may buy a larger one!

Fresh sand eels as bait if you can get them. In Devon soft shell crabs.

Aye, got sand eels aplenty (launce(?)in French) still no joy, although we have been introduced to the delights of shallow fried & salted sand eel by the locals. Delicious as an aperu with a Ricard, who'd have thought it? I might be better off just eating the sand eels & sod the Bass
