we had a double boat booking today with dad. i had 5 anglers aboard who have been coming out with dad and myself for several years now. we had heard of a few fish moving in throughout the week and so split up to try and find out where the best fishing wa to be. dad stayed inshore while myself and the lads headed about 20 miles from mersea to find out if there were any more offshore. we spent most of the ebb offshore with only one bite and hearing from dad and a couple of the other boats inshore we headed back in over the slack tide. when we got back inshore the tide took a long time to flood but when it eventually did we found a few fish and in about an hour and a half had a 5 codling around 3-4lbs, 3 whiting and a roker. the a few other roker have shown this week and some more today. this is nearly a month earlyer than last year and can only be a good sign. the sprats are thinning out a bit and these were very small tides so fingers crossed for good numbers next week.
