Having planned a day out fishing with young Tales I was surprised when he decided to stay home and cuddle up with his cats and watch a mix of films, in reality it was just what he needed however he spent a good part of the day checking weather forecasts, tide times and recent catch reports on the iPad in preparation for a day out on Sunday to Seaford to target cod and flatfish.
The weather has changed and with the westerly winds and slightly warmer temperatures young Tales is optimistic about his chances of catching fish. With a 6.4 m tide on Sunday late in the morning he will have a good a chance as any in adding some more species to his catch list, in fact I wouldn’t be surprised if he caught a bass from this under rated venue.
It was Seaford where he first witnessed the thrill of sea fishing and where he really did get hooked on fishing. As he says ‘he loves fishing, football and formula one’.
Another surprise for today was the win at White Hart Lane for Spurs against their London rival Chelsea, 5-3 was not a score line I would have predicted, however I was pleased to see the blues buckle for once, it was back in the golden years for Spurs in the early 60’s that the whites hit five goals past the blues in a 5-2 victory.
I’m predicting young Tales will spend most of tomorrow planning his Sunday trip, tackle bags are already packed and I’ve been instructed to take the Igloo with us so we will be in for the long haul on both sides of the tide. I hope to detail a positive catch report on Sunday evening.
One addition to the blog in 2015 will be an increased focus on vintage tackle and items for sales so hopefully this will be ready over the next couple of weeks.
