Sunday saw Dan and I fish a mark in Portsmouth that we’ve fished countless times before but that didn’t stop us learning something about the movements of the resident Bass population. We fished almost an entire flood tide on a fish holding structure that goes from fully exposed to fully submerged. At low tide the structure offers security for a vast amount of baitfish – including these baby mullet pictured here. The moment the sea level breaches the top of the structure the odds turn in favour of the Bass as the tide flow rips over. These mini mullet were caught at my feet with my landing net as they literally had nowhere else to go but the shore. Matching them with an Ecogear Grass Minnow M in Super Glitter / Dark Smoke Back and dropping one over the back of the obstacle on a 4g jighead saw a number of fish in quick succession. Great fun in the fierce tide flow
