I suppose this is the start of the couple of months period where I kid myself I can go out with the chance of a fish, but where I don't catch until May. Last year was like that.. and the year before, I had one in March, and had to wait two months for another one.
Oh well.. look on the bright side.
Anybody else spotted anything around?

..and there are indeed suddenly many hundreds, if not thousands of thins swimming around my local estuary, over the shallow mud flats that are warm from the sun. Most around the 1lb mark, but here and there, a few much bigger fish. Also a fair sprinkling of those odd-looking "white" fish, that often get mistaken for true albinos..
..and did we catch? Did we hell.. the usual story of lots of fish swimming around our baits (bread), but not a touch..
I'll try a baited flounder spoon tomorrow, but I'm not that confident..
Still.. the weather's nice.

And with the afternoon sun on exposed mud it can come up a couple of degrees in a day.
Personally, I find 12C is needed to bring them onto feed, maybe a tad more.
But that may not be long now
