Work on and visitors staying so not much fishing at the moment. I managed to find the time today but it was always going to be a struggle in a strong easterly wind against a larger-than-expected swell off the Atlantic, and bright sunlight. I picked some limpets for bait and headed off to one of the few rock marks that would be sheltered.
I alternated between floatfishing the limpets for wrasse - all small as it turned out this early in the season - and spinning a redgill for pollack. There weren't many pollack about but I lost what felt a really good one when it dived into the kelp and then landed one about 4lbs that felt small by comparison. Towards high water the swells came up even more and I gave it best.
