Hi all. I've just started back sea fishing after moving to Cumbria a couple of years ago. Heard quite a bit of negative stuff about the fishing here but not doing too bad. Only one blank out of 5 sessions anyway nothing shaking the record books but decent Thornback off St Bees beach last night...
I'm based in South West Cumbria and wondering if anyone knows any good low water venues?
I often fish silecroft but I only ever see people about at high tide - as with most of the other marks I fish.
Anywhere from barrow/walney up to Whitehaven is well within range. I don't really care...
I'm trying to get my hands on some live sandeel and wonder what are/is your preferred way of catching them (from the shore).
Some of the methods I've heard about are -
Catch them in a pushnet just like prawns,
A bigger net pulled about by a couple of people,
Dig them out with a fork...
