    Hi all, Been a few years since I was on here as had an extended break from fishing. Got back into it recently with my 2 sons and planning a trip to Chesil, in particular the Ferrybridge area, this week. Just wondered if anyone can advise of the current state of affairs down there... Any...

    I wondered should I write this report or not because this happened two months ago but decided to do it anyway. Ordered one pound of blow lugs from Abbotsbury Fishing Tackle on Monday for weekend fishing session. Collected bait around 11 am on Saturday and what surprised me how big, lively and...

    Hi, Going down to Chesil with the family on the 6th May bank holiday. Checked the tide times and it'll be low tide during the day when I'll be fishing. Does anyone know any good low tide marks on Chesil and any tips (bait, fish species) would be appreciated. Thanks

    Halfway between Abbottsbury and West Bexington. I have been looking online and several posts reckon it's a fairly good spot about a mile from Abbottsbury car park? I got a great homemade stainless steel trolley so can walk it easily. From the forecasts on the eve of 16th and 17th nov, it could...

    Myself and brother Ben hit Chesil on friday fishing for Plaice from low through to high tide. Things started off well for me finding one on my very first cast. Unfortunately things were actually slow for most of the day but we managed 5 plaice between us and I found a nice flounder too. All...

    (This is going to be a long one, sorry) With my recent success at chesil the other night I decided to do the same thing again, another 19 hour session but this time I fished during the day before the night, as i found it a bit tough fishing on no sleep! I opted for a two hook flapper with rag...

    Morning guys, Here's a vid of Rob @pair of danglers fishing on Chesil beach a couple of nights ago, the target for him was plaice/sole and to see what else may be tempted by a fish bait. The vid is 8mins... The bike I borrowed to get down to the beach felt like it was part of me after 10...

    It’s been a few weeks since I’ve been able to get out there and wet a line. Ok, I’ve been over to the field to practice casting, but that isn’t fishing. So, after not going Friday night, I managed to grab a few hours Sunday morning with the old man. The conditions weren’t great, the blazing sun...

    After a last minute decision to take a spot on a boat out of Weymouth on Saturday morning I thought my fishing permission officer would have put a stop on my planned trip to chesil for Saturday night! But NO, she decided that she would like to join me in trying to see if the rumours of mr cod...

    Haven't reported anything for a long time so thought this was a good time to let everyone know that I'm still fishing and with great success over the last couple of months. This time the destination was Newhaven Pier which I hadn't fished on for a good year, bracing strong 20mph winds I arrived...
