On Thursday i headed of to a new location for flounders , i blanked found it hard going with the speed of the incoming tide , but it was worthwhile as a recce , especially for other species .
That night Brian phoned and before we know it i was allowed to go fishing again on Friday. We headed to our new favourite flounder beach, with a few Blueys for bait , and before long Brian had the first flounder followed by the next and the next.
Heres another interesting catch ,a reverse sided Flounder.
On the way back up the road we stopped in at the place i fished the day previous with no result, but the target was differant , mackeral with the fly gear. We set up walked along the breakwater and waited for a "Blitz" .
Next day found us heading south for a change on a flattie mark, with the chance of a Turbot, we lasted all of an hour before feeling a bit discouraged with untouched baits , so we headed to the harbour, lovely looking place , but apart from the tap tap of tiny wee coalies we could not get a bite from a decent fish . We felt like Ducks out of water in all honesty. It's a learning curve this saltwater angling and we are still fairly new to the game. But thats what makes it so engrossing. The mackeral tasted great!
