On my way home this afternoon I spotted a likely looking beach about 7 miles along the coast from where im working so thought it would be rude not to go and wet a line for a couple of hours before getting into the Dumfries rush hour and then the M6 madness Mad

Southerness was the place looking straight across to the lake district, it felt odd that earlier in the year I was on that side looking across to Scotland and now im on the other side staring back Exclamation

Its a massive beach with very few features so I just headed straight out from the car and hoped I would find a good spot fishing

Armed With some frozen Lug that had been defrosted and refrozen so many times that I wasn't sure if it would be any good at all I set off across the muddy sand to fish the last hour of the ebb and the first hour of the flood fishing

I had three casts on the ebb all of which were fruitless and two on the flood, the weed was a reel pain so I ended up cutting the shock leader off as the knot was collecting loads of the stuff  Mad  
On the last cast just as I was praying for a pin Whiting a lovely plump Flounder took the bait  cth

After a quick photo shoot I let him swim off to grow a bit more ready for my next visit cheers

After this report, I have been bugged by a fishing report I read while in UK 5 years ago, it was about a spot in that area, fishing from low rocks at low tide with a lighthouse or pylon behind the angler. After much Google earth searching the Southerness lighthouse looks to be the nearest to the description I read and saw from photos.
It was probably summer, but it was known as a bass and flounder spot. It looks to be an interesting coastline heading west, an area I have never explored.
