  1. Shore Angling
    Hi all, I recently purchased an old (fairly stiff) Conoflex beach rod and using with a Daiwa 7HT. I've loaded the 7HT with 30lbs 8x strand jbraid and 60lbs shock leader. It casts like a dream and bite detection is not bad with the braid, but had a snap off on my second session after dragging in...
  2. Shore Angling
    Morning all, complete beginner to fishing in general but decided to get into beach/estuary. I’ve had a few ventures out and as fun as it is feeding the fish I’ve had not so much as a bite! I’m sure I’m missing something critical but I can’t see it. I usually fish the Grays Wharf or down by the...
  3. Shore Angling
    Is it possible to buy just a new canvas for the Ian Golds Igloo shelters. Mine is getting very tired but obviously the metal poles are completely serviceable and would outlast another 3 or 4 or even more canvases.

  8. General Sea Angling Discussion
    This is sometimes used in course angling to hold boilies together, but I’m wondering if the same idea could be applied to big squid/lug cocktails to stop whiting and other small species tearing the bait apart before the targeted species gets a look in. Has anyone tried this before?
  9. South East Catch Reports
    Got down to the Point yesterday and decided to fish 3 hours each side of the low tide. A gentle SW wind got my hopes up for an elusive cod. Having had a couple of sessions there already this year, I decided to use pulley Pennel rigs with 7/0 hooks on lug and squid cocktails, but guess what...

  15. General Sea Angling Discussion
    ive been making my own rigs for a while now, and have made a few clipped down rigs. Take a pulley rig for example. I always have a shock leader 60-80lb and rig body will be 50-60lb. Snoods will be 20-25lb. Now, here comes my query. If I clip down my pulley rig this takes weight off rig body and...

  17. Beginners and Improvers
    A simple question: Is it the norm to always have the drag set down tight when fishing a beach caster from a rod rest - either FS or multiplier? I have been doing this and had good results catching bass and flatties - but I recently had a good smoothound that basically pulled my entire rod rest...

  20. South Coast & Channel Islands Catch Reports
    Still coming off the adrenaline of my second big bass and the first fish of the year, I've been hooked to the beach whenever the weather has been good, this evening was no exception.. Back on the squid, hoping for another beast of a bass but the blank was narrowly avoided by the help of this...
