Sea’s Alive

I haven’t managed to go fishing again since I was out SUP fishing on Monday, but I have been swimming a couple of times and the sea is alive with fish at the moment. It’s madness.

Fishing Bait at Ynyslas

Our fishing attempts have still proved fishless – I think it must be time for a change of tactics. So far all we have managed to do is catch one tiny little half-dead crab, some weed and we have managed to lose a lure. Not much success. We did try digging for bait on Thursday though and...
