The sixth month of the year already. The first June weekend had great weather. I was out on Sunday in Bracklesham Bay after my first bream of the year. First cast a bass. Why does that always happen when there is a ban? Then a right old mixture of a small tope, 12lb undulate, smoothhound, mackerel (yes – 4) and finally a bream, albeit a small one. And about 50 dogfish of course. word on the pontoon was the flood is fishing a lot better than the ebb. Good to know. By the way this is the bass, I prefer to unhook fish I am not keeping while still in the water, it causes a lot less damage and stress.
