Brighton Inshore Fishing - Catch report 3rd August 2019

Out with Bruce and his son Oscar on a whole boat charter first sailing. Nervous that we might experience the same tough fishing as the previous day, I was pleased to find that was not the case. Fish were present, and although we hooked a fraction of the huge shoals we saw below the boat, it was still enough to make for a very enjoyable session. With some irony. Bruce and Oscar are both catch and release fans, so of course, many perfect table fish were caught, and returned. It was a very pleasant morning, with fish happy to feed. If only every session could be like that...

These words I found myself saying, when half way through a full boat for the final two sailings of the day. Running back to back, the afternoon was once more a struggle to find fish. I ran everywhere from Shoreham to Saltdean hunting. A couple of schoolies, a tidy wrasse, but no consistency. Some quirkiness, when Ian landed BIF1's second ever Brill, on an SG weedless head sporting a HTO mighty minnow body. Indeed, it wasnt until the final hour when we found good fishing. Fast and furious, with lots of surface lure action. It really did rather save the session for Ian, Paul , Shaun and Steve. Table fish were found, a big relief for Steve who was cooking paella later in the evening and really fancied fresh bass being in the mix. Big smiles, but hard earned. Thank goodness for that last hour...
