I had many plans for the month of May but life got in the way instead.

I mentioned previously that the site was going to take somewhat of a new direction and this is the first step – monthly reports. Why?

It started on Thursday, a message came through asking if I’d like to head out for a beach session on Friday night. It wouldn’t be like me to say I didn’t want to go fishing!

It was very cold last night when I was packing the car and I knew this morning was going to be no different. Still, I wasn’t going to miss an opportunity so like a lunatic, off I went.

We headed off this morning without checking the tide. On reaching the top of the hill I could see that it was very much out so we turned around and went into town for a some shopping instead.

The weekend had landed and I had hoped to get out yesterday but a combination of a late start and some heavy fog kept me off the water so I went for a family hike instead only for the fog to lift soon afterwards!

Today was a typically Irish January day except for the temperatures which hit 14°C, a big change from just a couple of days ago when the heavy frost had descended.

It was a particularly chilly affair this morning with overnight temperatures dipping as low as -4°C. A heavy frost had descended and the water butt that I use for aquarium water changes is a 100 litre block of ice!

I have been doing a few shore sessions recently. With weather and time constraints it was impossible to get the kayak out so the next option was to fish from the shore.
