    I would probably be late arriving.

    I have to pick up a Kayak which is being delivered at around 12:30pm but hopefully could collect it earlier. So might not be able to get down there until mid-afternoon but that still leaves plenty of time for a fish.

    I might also be able to arrange for someone to collect the Kayak for me if that is the case I would be able to get down their earlier in the day.

    Low tide is at 1:33pm and hightide is at 7:48pm. (give or take).

    Been into town today and brought myself a new ‘jig rod’ it is a berkley dropshot (quite good rods) and is rated for 6-10kg. Very light weight and a pleasure to cast. Would probably use it off the wharf at night.

    Also brought a kg of Squid and pilchard.

    I have organised my sister to collect the kayak for me, so if everything goes find I would probably be down there before lunch. Maybe even first thing.
