PostSubject: spinning a tale - weaver city at splash point   Tue Jul 21, 2015 6:01 pm

After the bowls centre escapade (bowled over at north wales bowls centre) i had repaired the rod eye, stripped cleaned and respooled tge multipliers and collected a few more lug so it was time to hit the beach again. with the Ffrith not producing much, i decided on a change on venue so headed off to splash point with the youngest in tow to see if the calmer winds had brought the flatties in close, as has often been the case in the past. arriving an hour before high water the winds winds were off my back so my sons rod with single paternoster was cast approx 80yrds with lug being the bait of choice. my rods were fished with 2hook clipped down paternosters with some old manky lug i had left over from a previous session, saving the best for my son in the hope of him getting a better chance of a bite. my rods were fished at the 100yrd mark into open water, my sons being close to the groyne. the wind swung direction coming in from kimnel bay direction and gradually gained strength increasing the swell as the afternoon went on.
unfortunatley the flatties (or anything else!) failed to show but i managed 5 good sized weavers to save a blank on the most disgusting lug ever to grace a hook - little more than tarry lug skins really! My son got into the action with a weaver on fresh lug too. i snapped off on a cast (teach me not to fully bed in the line after respooling!!) and when the tide receded i managed to recover it all intact - complete with another weaver attached, still alive and kicking and buried in the sand. still, saved a blank and i got the chance to show my son what a weaverfish was and why not to touch them or wade barefoot in the sea. the sands off splashpoint seemed paved with them.
odd that manky 3day old lug outfished worms pumped out of the sand that morning, but there you go. no matter what range i cast to, i got a weaver! We headed home about 2 1/2hrs past high water when the water receded quickly and the weed built up so from weavers to knitting balks of weed, it was time for home. the boy was buzzing at his lil weaver and wants to get out again - another load of lug was pumped this morning hopefully for use tomorrow, gotta find the bass somewhere!

Great report mate and well done to the youngun,not a bad fish to start on when you think about it I remember being told about the weever and didn't catch one for years in which time I was dubious about touching pin whiting,slugs and scorpion and small pollock before asking what they were

Same here pal. i grew up on the south east coast and fished all along from eastbourne marina to bexhill, hastings harbour arm and pier to dungeoness and camber sands - all recognised weaver spots, yet those weavers were the first ive ever caught. i was lucky that i recognised what it was as i swung it to hand, i first thought it may be a small pin whiting or something until it was on the inswing towards my outstretched hand, then i twigged and allowed ot to swing on by before using foreceps to unhook and return the little prickily neuro-toxin inpregnated blighters!

Well done on the fish, and not getting spiked.

Pretty little things though arent they? Would look nice in a tank scratch

Yeah i think they would go nice in a tank. be fun cleaning them out when buried in the sand though!! My lad was happy and cant wait to go again now. although he wants to catch something for tea now! I need to sirt him out with a sandspike or an old tripod next as he's using garden canes cabletied together as a rod rest at the monent. looks dodgy and isnt great in high winds but it does the job ok for the moment.
