Last minute decision to try a local mark at low tide using my spinning rod and a float. I waded out a little bit and started off with a bit of ragworm but looking down into the water I could see lots of little minnows, shrimps & crabs, so since I brought a bit of mackerel I took a slither of the belly and put it on the hook, cast it out as far as I could, left it a minute and then slowly began to retrieve so the mackerel was just off the bottom fluttering about. Next thing I felt a bite but not a full take so I kept reeling, then bang it was hooked and a fight ensued. This was my first time catching a decent fish on my spinning rod and it was brilliant, the fish put up a good fight and I definitely want to do it again!
