A First!!!

November 30th, 2011 · No Comments

Venue - Kinmel Bay, (20yds west of) Ty Melyn
Tide - High
Time - Day
Bait - Fresh Lug

On my last outing, the old faithful Harbour 9000 fixed spool reel finally gave up the ghost.
It was a £29.95 cheapo from Rays shop on the pier, a good few years ago now and if I could find another one, it’d probably keep me happy for another 5 years or so.

This morning, I had no other option than to blow the dust off a Penn Surfmaster. (850 I think)
It was a reel bought about 4 years ago that I had high hopes for.
It disappointed then, with lots of niggles that had me migrating back to the cheapo Harbour 9000.

Having re-learnt how to tie on a tapered shockleader (it’s been a while since I’ve had too), I headed to Geoffs for a pack of Fresh Lug.

At Kinmel Bay, a strong Southerly, with a bit of Westerly thrown in, had a nice fishable surf on offer.
The usual setup was used. A Jensen 1up 1down flapper and a 4oz gripper.

First cast and my knot tying abilities were called into question as my rig headed for the horizon minus the mainline!!!!!

I retackled, and tried again.
No rookie errors this time :)

With the end gear finally out there, I was able to have a bit of a ponder and a forage.

Was that Wormdrowner to the West??

I got a bit distracted high up on the strand line and when I eventually remembered the rod, it was twitching :)
A double header greeted me!

Next cast saw a better bite. Well, a small pull down actually!
On the last day of November, I caught my first Bass of the year!
