Big eyes

Sunday, 10 November 2019 at 15:00

Big eyes Whiting have dark-adapted eyes and therefore hunt best in low light - dawn, dusk or turbid water are favoured conditions. You can still catch them during the daytime but even then they bite most readily when clouds obscure the sun. The image shows a little whiting I released (lugworm) eighteen months ago: the relatively large eye shows up very clearly. Today it was noticeable that (despite a favourable tide) the bites dropped off as the autumn sun rose towards midday.
