A lesson perhaps

Fished Deal this PM and discovered an "Open" in progress, about 700 rods so
I was told..
Very little action from what I saw of it having, with care and agreement,
slotted myself in-between 2 guys fishing well apart.
One of the guys next to me kept getting his weight stuck in the bottom and
each time had to work hard to free it..
Anyhow about an hour from the end he put a sliding rig on and made contact
with something tasty, a bass I believe, having seen it on the top a couple
of times as the guy struggled to get his weight free (again).
Up and down the beach he went trying all the angles of pull until his line
Bottom rig, sliding rig and fish all gone.
Poor bugger especialy with the best fish or was it biggest, worth a grand.
Anyhow he said he had to use a wired lead in a match, when the tide pulled
to keep his tackle from drifting in front of anyone else .
But from about 2 hours before and after high waterI held bottom with a plain
bomb without causing anyone a prob.
Perhaps he was casting out further and his drift would then cause a prob
whilst I stayed in the gutter (where many say I should stay :-) )
I wonder if things would have been any different if the guy has experimented
a bit rather than stixking with the traditional..
I blanked as well.
