I was planning a day out on the yak today but I had a short notice invite to fish on a friends boat ,  I didn't have to think twice about having a motor on the back instead of paddle power!
Wayne's a member of prestatyn sailing club so it was a nice easy tractor launch at the start of the ebbing tide, the plan was to fish for the bass for a few hours then to fish for the hounds with a few crab we had between us.
We where using soft plastics and redgills on light gear for the bass, the 1st hour was fruitless but a change of lure brought me good luck, my 1st bass of the year was landed, about 4lb



Wayne was in next with a fish about 3lb, and then I had another tiny one, a few of the boats had a few but it was pretty quite on the bass front, at one point there were 10 boats drifting the same grounds!
We moved on after a while and dropped the anchor over the rough ground, out went the crab baits and we were instantly into the hounds, we must of had 20-30 between us by the end of the afternoon.



Was an enjoyable day out and change of scenery

Looks like you are getting it right Dan,nice one. lol!
I know it can be bad there because of the algae,I think the Dee is a lot of the cause of it.
Fished the shallow sandbanks there with a mate from the club,plenty of Bass when there is no algae.

The algae seems to of disappeared now, no sign of it, the water was pretty clear for there I was told, looked a bit murky to me but for a fast flowing estuary it was OK, I'm used to clearer water this way Very Happy

That's good news about the Algae Dan,it's been putting me off launching at the club.
I've got a mate that's a member,I can't remember if they launch non members at the club with the tractor.
(I think they charge £25)
The tides don't matter too much at prestatyn,and launching at Rhyl next week I would have to launch 2hrs after high,and stay out for 7.5hrs,that's a long day with travelling from Manchester and back,and I'm no spring chicken.
My mate's a dab hand with the Tractor.
