Smoothie hunt

August 18, 2009


With reports that the smoothhounds were rampaging off the shore down in Selsey and off the Witterings, Danny and I decided to see if we could get in on the action. Unfortunately best laid plans don’t always work out. And we struggled to find any fish on a poor neap tide. Trying to find bait was even harder as the tide refused to go out and reveal the pools of crabs. Bait ended up being bought and we headed off to the first of 2 marks on the advice of the local tackle shops. We fished through the high tide without any smoothies showing up and again the next day we fished a different mark through the high into darkness and they failed to show again. We did catch bream and bass though and Danny had great fun in the sea and it was hard to keep the boy dry, he once agian showed just how much he loves water and I have to say I’m rather getting into this sea fishing lark. Every time the rod banged over there was that feeling that this could be it. You just never know just what is going to grab that bait.
