Gambia on the Beach

Our Impressions of the Gambia,long sandy beaches,hot sunshine,Lazy days ,i took some spinning gear with a few plugs and hoped for the best

 Carol my wife below enjoying a few rays and looking good we beach bummed it for our full week out there,i was watching the surf line like a hawk but the first couple of days but nothing,
 Here's my other woman below, Stella she came a long for the ride too and was always at the ready up in the canopy of our sun umbrella,on the 4th day i saw a few bait fish and risers around 150 yds off a reef at low i clipped on a Seaspin P120Q surface lure and made my way up the barren beach ,the rising fish looked a good size so out went the flashing plate surface lure was looking good but not far enough out ,,then BANG!!!fish on it came out of nowhere and then was off,felt a tidy fish Then BANG!! FISH ON again!! just back of the small surf line the seaspin surface flashing plate was certainly doing ok,,,these fish are certainly leap and fight like mad when hooked ,frequently slipping the hook,,

I had a lot of takes on the surface lure and was brilliant sport for the Fish the natives of the Gambia call the Nine-Bone, elops Senegalensis

Above the Seaspin P120Q in Flashing Plate i think in ghost a lure to be used in Ultra Bright conditions it certainly got the Bones attention this day,have a look here for a nice action with the lure,,

 Above a Nine-Bone of around 4lbs a fish species that gave me a load of enjoyment down on the reef and the beach difficult to keep on the hook but great sport on the surface lures,,
Check out seaspin lures here some really nice stuff,,

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter
updates. I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and
was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something
like this. Please let me know if you run into anything.
I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward
to your new updates.
