Friday 17th November 2017


On Friday the 17th we launched Four Buoys from Burnham-on-Sea, we had attended the clubs AGM the night before and had a very enjoyable evening, luckily our heads weren’t too sore!! 

On board with me were Richard & Roy Saxby.

It was a pleasant change to launch at a civilised hour and with a perfect forecast we headed out to sea.

First stop was on the local banks in search of a late season bass.

We caught fish from the off with a steady stream of rays, congers and dogfish.

As the sun rose the air temperature started to rise, a lovely bright and warm day was on the cards.

With no bass showing we decided to take full advantage of the conditions and head down channel.

First stop around Dunster and we were into fish again with a few whiting thrown into the mix.

As the tide had died away we moved out in front of Minehead hoping the deeper water would give us a bit more flow.

Again we caught quite quickly here and not longer after the turn of the tide I had a very different fight which turned out to be a nice haddock of 1lb 15ozs, a first on Four Buoys.

There was to be another first on Four buoys as I landed a spurdog which we weighed at 10lb.

With no codling showing here though we decided on one last move back up channel to Hinkley.

Again we were in to fish quite quickly here with lots of small rays and small congers.

Although we didn’t find any codling it had been a very enjoyable day’s fishing in good company and a beautiful warm winters day.
