How To Fish

 

This venue is predominantly known as a great place for Flatties. Using lugworm as bait on a spoon rig has always caught lots of good size Flounder and Plaice to 2lbs. Also here you will catch Silver Eels, the odd Bass and even a rare Sea Trout

In the winter you now get a large run of Codling to 3lbs caught on lugworm wrapped in squid, Whiting to fish baits and also the occasional Bass.

Do not fish here after heavy rain or snow for the fresh water coming down from the hills kills the fishing. The river also has a Bore which on a spring tide can be quite large. This venue is best fished on a 24-25ft tide.
