Enjoyed a first for me yesterday....chasing mullet from the deck of a converted Boston Whaler giving casting platforms front and back. This certainly took the British Bonefish aspect to the next level and if the skies had been blue instead of murky grey we could have been in Ascension Bay rather than a Dorset harbour.

A few hours into the flood things suddenly came alive and we came upon a shoal of many hundreds of mullet feeding hard in twelve inches of water. We decided to wade into position to cover the fish as a gusty wind made casting from the deck a tricky affair. Several fish were lost, including one particularly powerful specimen before skipper Paul Jennings and I finally got fish to the net, a plump golden grey and a feisty thin lipped mullet. A red-headed diawl bach brought most of the action.
