Set off again and James came on the radio saying about the sand eels and then Gary replied saying there was loads at Waxham end, they seemed to be everywhere now! I trolled up and down with no more joy on the bass front. James came on the radio and said he had a string of macks on the last reef!! I was about have way down the reefs so a quick paddle to where James was, put some hokkais on with no joy then tried sabikis with no joy also. I gave it half hour then spoke to Gary who said one more troll backup to waxham then he was going to call it a day so we set of trolling again but with no joy.
On the way back James had found the mackerel again in the middle of the reefs, so I changed back over to hokkais with but no joy. James was getting sand eels and the odd mack in the mix. When the shoals were coming through you could see the gulls diving in the distance I wasn’t getting a sniff so I changed over to some small sabikis. First drop a string of five mackerel, dropped down again and had a string of sand eels, by this time Gary was back on the beach so I called it a day. James followed me back in as well. It was a really enjoyable day with great company and lots of sunshine and over six hours afloat on the Tempo.
