Sea Fishing – April 2012

Actually the title of this should really be called…”Not Sea Fishing – April 2012” because thanks to the fine weather that the UK has enjoyed 😉 I’ve barely got out to wet a line, and I know I’m not the only one. The one glorious week we had in March on light winds and hot sunshine seems like such a long distant memory! In April we’ve been treated to the coldest April in 20 years in some parts of the country, the wettest April on record and in others and just to top it off, above averge winds from a horrible northerly direction for just about most of the country. Not good.

But we did manage one trip from the shore to see if we could pick up one of the many Flounders that should be showing by now. Six hours later and without a bite (not even from a crab) we gave up. On the plus side that was at least some signs of life about with Sea Trout hovering around the harbour and the first large shoals of Sandeels. Things have got to pick up soon haven’t they?

From the boat we’ve not been out at all but there have been local catch reports of the first Tope of the season being caught. If May will just let us throw the ropes off I’d love to get out there and give them a go, I’d really love to beat my 70lb+ specimen from last year.

Until that happens though and with the wind locked in a rubbish direction for at least the next 4 days I’m going to bin work tomorrow and go and try my luck for a trout in the reservoir.
