With reports of a few Bass from the mark on our doorstep and a decent evenings weather, the Joneses had a short session at Splash Point last night.

Freshly pumped lug and my new pulley pennels were the weapons of choice for me and Tom. My targets were a Bass or a Weever for the species hunt. Tom was just hoping to catch while Terry didnít want to miss out so met us on the beach not long after we had arrived.

We were only on our second cast as the tide turned. Fairziff had come down to see how we were doing as he passed on his regular castwatch shift and as we stood and chatted, Tom had a good knock. Laughing

We ran over to his rod and he picked it up and waited for it to go again, which it did almost instantly. While he was reeling in, I wasnít sure whether he had hooked the fish but as it got into the shallows it started running sideways and Tom walked backwards to expertly beach his second ever Bass. cheers

Smiley faces all round once he realised what type of fish it was. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy



Terry was next in with a Weever, my other target Evil or Very Mad and he followed this up on the next cast with a Dab.



Time was running out before I had to head to work, the light was fading by now and I was staring a blank in the face. Shocked



Terry had a crackoff ( using a fixed spool!!! ) scratch lol! so we wound in our last cast of the night.



I tackled down Toms rod then wound in my own and I was relieved to find a small Whiting had impaled itself on my hook. Embarassed I must have missed the bite while sorting Toms rod but it saved the blank so I didnít really care. cheers



Time for work but a very nice couple of hours spent at a mark we donít fish nearly often enough. We will be back!

Happy Days!!!

Splash Point is at the Eastern end of Rhyl promenade. See the map here

The point can be fished at high or low water and fresh Lug is by far the best bait all year round.

In summer there are Bass, Flounders, Eels, the odd Plaice and plenty of Weevers.
Winter will see Dabs, Whiting, Codling and lots of Rockling.
