Last week Sharon and myself took the dogs for a walk along another estuary river close to where we live. The weather was sunny with a nice wind which kept you cool as the temperature started to go up. The tide was just starting to come in as we reached the top of the sea wall which meant I could see where the deeper water was.

We walked for about a mile until we came to a sharp bend in the sea wall and where the deeper water looked to be closer in. As i walked round a bush saying to myself how this area looked ideal for a spot of fishing in front of me were 2 old boys waiting for the tide to come in some more. After a good chat with them some good local information was given and greatly received. Apparently this is a good area for bass, with some good size fish being caught too, as well as mullet. Throw in some flatties and eels and alls good.

Well that made my mind up to give it a go here in the next couple of weeks when the tides right, as not only is it barely fished, its also pretty, quite and not too far a walk. Also i can bring the dogs along too which is a bonus. As Sharon and I sat on a bench near to the corner we could see a couple of seals popping their heads out of the water on the opposite side of the river. As Harry splashed about in the margins in front of us the seals got more and more curious and slowly made their way closer to us, popping there heads up every 10 yards or so. It was great to watch and was Sharons first glimpse of wild seals.

I,m right royaly chomping at the bit to get my bass gear out now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
