We tried a Bass fishing trip on the 28th August out on cousin Chris’s Boat!
The wind was gusting 35 knots so all our usual fishing spots were going to be too uncomfortable.
We picked up a mooring opposite Levington marina in the River Orwell. Chris and I used Lugworm for bait. I dug about 80 worms on the wednesday so we had enough worms. I also bought a back of prawns to try.
The trouble was that the wind kept swinging the boat about through 180 degrees and with the wind, it was nigh on impossible to register any bites. We persevered until about 3:15pm and gave up. Chris caught a small bass (on Lug) which went back in the water.
See photo to prove we actually caught one. It is the Royal ‘We’, because I only caught weed.
On the way back we saw some lovely storms (in the distance) but luckily managed to dodge them.
Better luck next time.
