Oystercat Fishing Trip - Skipper Dean Gifford
Sunday morning, with everyone on-board, we headed out armed with a few pound of live eel, some worm and squid to kill time before the flood started. As we past the pier heads the sea state wasn't as nice as the forecasters had promised. One drift for mackerel out off the SWIGG saw us get nothing. We were side on to the chop so it was fairly uncomfortable so we tucked in off the Mumbles to wait for the weather to become more cooperative. Around 1pm, we made our way around the headland to find the sea sate inside the Mixon was flat, gutted we didn't get around there earlier. Fishing began with a few little hounds.
Then Simon caught a bass on a peeler, and John landed his first bream of the year.
The bream were driving us crazy with lots of small fish plucking at our baits.Once the tide had built up enough momentum, we got the anchor up and shot off shore to try for some bass. Yes! we picked up bass, throughout the tide, ranging from 2lb to 6lb – with a reasonable number of keepers.
We ended the day with a mad dash back to get in on the final lock of the day, 9.30pm.
Our final catch tally was 25 bass to 6lb, a few hounds, a few huss, only 2 bream (lots missed), dogs, a tompot blenny, a pouting and whiting.
We had a reasonable day, thankfully the weather forecast came good and conditions were fantastic. My original plan was to run further west, but we were all happy with the result.
