Mullet Fishing 2020: Fishing Days
Latest: 22/09/20: 2/00
20/08/20: 2/11, 6/00 - the second fish, exactly what one would expect; felt like I'd hooked the bottom, then the inevitable hammering runs and head-shaking. Totally brutal and uncompromising, and took what seemed an age before it showed even the slightest indication of tiring - a proper 'tank'.
13/07/20: 3/00 - didn't get it wrapped round the big post, didn't get it caught in the bladder wrack, didn't cut the line on the barnacle-encrusted stonework, and after a few attempts, in no way assisted by the fish itself, got it in the net. Sweet.
10/07/20: 2/08 golden-grey, another shallow-water missile. Remembered thinking, 'this one feels a bit odd...'
16/06/20: 4/03 - way down a narrow and claustrophobic channel, and not at all a sensible proposition. Evidently, we don't do 'sensible'....
09/06/20: 2/00 - went off like a moderately-sized torpedo (and a much larger bass) in about twelve inches of water, and didn't stop, for a while. Then the thumping started... Must've fed on groundbait with a high Weetabix content - magic.
13/05/20: 2/06 - great to be off the mark in 2020, after the recent and continuing grimness.
