Plenty More Fish in the Sea. Kingston Seymour Sea Wall 19/03/2014
A few hours on Kingston Seymour sea wall last night resulted in me catching fish - something I normally struggle to do there! I was there with Dave and Trevor and all three of us had caught small codling within minutes of casting out. The rod tips twitched all evening and although the fish were small, very small in fact, it was nice to be getting bites. I think we were all hoping a bigger specimen would show up and it was Dave who struck lucky by landing a nice flounder of about 2lb. I had a whiting for variety and we all packed up agreeing it had been very enjoyable. We all used similar tackle and bait, pulley and flapper rigs baited with worm and squid did the trick and long casts weren't needed, most fish fell to the rods cast short. All local marks appear to be alive with these small codling at the moment and with summer species showing already, it's a good time to get out and give it a go.
