As reported elsewhere on the Forum , I have returned from a trip to Lagos in Portugal.
I took some basic fishing kit that fits into the suite case as the estuary in Lagos is very fishable with coarse gear. My first trip out proved good fun, fishing a waggler set up size 8 hook, bread flake and basically trotting it through on the slow movement of the water. Within a few casts the float went under and I struck into a good fish which was a black bream Very Happy
I managed to catch a good amount of these, they seemed suckers for the bread flack just off bottom. They all went back despite some locals wanting them for the pot.
On my second trip out the tide was at a different level and bites were not as forth coming. There are plenty of mullet to be seen actively feeding in the upper leaves but on my previous visits I did not connect with them. I changed to a smaller float and fished the bread flack around 12 inches under it, cast out the flake would float and then slowly sink. The mullet would come up and attack the flack and if i was lucky I would catch one in ten.
A great way to spend a few hours while on holiday.
I will add some pictures later once they are downloaded to this device.
