Lure fishing today.

I went out to a well know spot near the mouth of Cork harbour today.
The plan was to do some Plastic lure and jelly bait spinning for Bass on a flooding tide, but when i got there the water was churned up and brown. It was well sheltered from a south westerly which was blowing hard, but i failed to connect to anything more than weed.
Another angler was doing something very similar to me and he had no luck also (this makes me feel a "little" better)
Of course we could both be wrong!!!
It felt warm and the moving around had me sweating in my gear....
