When we were there a while back, maybe 1 or 2 km further east, whilst my daughter was laying on rubber ring maybe 20 feet our and 4 or 5 foot dept, there were some massive attacks of predatory fish, more like Florida than France. We never saw what it was, I would have guessed tuna but too shallow. If there were jacks or barracuda in The med I would have gone with this. The only Fish I saw people catch were the small bream on poles from the rocky groynes.I had a few unproductive hours on the beach along with 3 others Frenchmen each with 4 rods out and none of us caught a thing.

My cocktails baits, prawns and squid stank to high heaven but didn't induce a bite. I set up two rods only to discover on the second one that the handle screw on the reel, an Agility Surf seventy, had fallen off so I couldn't tighten the reel handle. I spent another unproductive half hour trying to find it to no avail. Very annoying. I shall see if I can get a spare somewhere.
The billowing clouds are over the Alps and threaten heavy rain if they descend. I came away just in case. It was hot though in the sun even with a parasol. A cooling dip was very welcome.
