If you are not catching, and there are other marks nearby,
then move on, spend no more than 10 minutes in one spot without catching one. That should be enough time to explore both
depth and angles from that spot. I find doing a bit of jigging can be quite productive too, especially if you’re near a
deep drop-off. If you’re on a heavy clouser, then jigging it 10 or 12 ft up and down near you can sometimes provide heart
stopping moments as you see a biggie chase it up from the depths. Something to be very aware of whenever you’re on the coast, is the tide. It’s all too easy to get absorbed in the fishing and
not notice the water creeping up around you. Always know your exit, and don’t go anywhere you can’t see an easy return route from, it
helps to imagine that extra 8ft of sea which could strand you.
