Double bass

September 22, 2009


Yesterday I headed down to Brighton to get afloat on the Brighton Diver. I’ve not bean afloat on the sea for quite a while and always enjoy it. We headed out of Brighton at about 7:30 am and motored out to the spot the skipper Paul had chosen. this was a rock wall in relatively shallow water about a few miles out. The target species were to be bass and bream. After arriving Paul positioned the boat and I started by trotting a live mackerel back towards the mark, suspended under a Coca Cola bottle. After a few trots back and one aborted hit, Ste next to me had a hit on his mackerel fished on the bottom, so I took off the float and bounced the lead back to the wall. The rod wrenched over as a nice bass hit the bait. I’ve got to say this is an increadable way of fishing and very exciting. I quickly had a lovely brace of nice bass, before alowing someone else to have a go and I went to do a bit of gentler bream fishing. We all had a great day and we will eat well for the next week.
