  1. South Coast & CI Catch Reports
    Was fishing Seaford beach Saturday from 10am to 2pm, 12.00 high tide. Clear water, northern wind. Surprising only 20x anglers on the beach despite the perfect flat fish weather conditions. First fish came 5 minutes after first cast, 36cm long plaice, second fish founder 26cm, 40 minutes later...

    Hi all - had a few trips out over the last few days with varying degrees of success. Friday - tried a few drifts for plaice down near Bournemouth, lots and lots of nets, so drifts kept shortish. Had gurnard, dogfish, small bream and finally a small plaice. Spotted a few boats a couple of...

    Thought I'd chuck this on here to get some opinions... is this flattie which my mate caught a Flounder or a Plaice? I'm saying Flounder cos of the fins and the shape, other people are saying Plaice due to the spots! It doesn't look like a Plaice to me, but I may be wrong! What do people think?

    Obviously these is a lot of Mackerels about but no plaice or flounders. I was fishing for any flat fish yesterday 2hrs before and after the high tide but nothing caught. My both rods set up on 2 hook flappers with black lugworms top up with squid. Not a single bite from flatties only mackerels...
  7. East Coast Catch Reports
    I had a session at hemsby last night. I got there about an hour before high tide and fished one rod with a two hook flapper, both hooks were baited with lugworm. The whiting were there from the first cast and i had some nice ones although im no sea angler so wouldn't know what size a specimen...

    Well I've been meaning to fish Langney point for a while now. Went down on Monday on that glorious day we had. Just the wrapped lug on three hook flappers and loop rigs.

    Great trip out on my boat with my 4yr old daughter today. Fished about 2 / 2.5 hrs either side of high water. Started at anchor and were plaiged with doggies (she thought it was great catching ‘baby sharks’!). I think we caught about 10 in total. All on mackerel strips patonoster. Given the...
  11. South West Catch Reports
    Haven't posted on here for a while but thought I'd share this. Decided to head out on my own on Friday night ignoring Cod fever. I wanted a Sole and wasn't disappointed when I found one on my first cast. Ended up with 2 Sole, 4 Plaice and a dab. Best Sole going just shy of a pound and a...

    Hi all, Have recently bought a small Dory boat and looking to take it out on its first trip around the Dorset coast this weekend. Aiming to launch from either Swanage or Kimmeridge for a days fishing, ideally for Bream and Plaice. Could anyone recommend a couple of good marks to get started...
  13. South West Catch Reports
    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...

    Evening all, Just got back from fishing princes parade. Absolutely glorious sunshine and not a 'ting in site :D Really quiet on the flood, then we started getting a few knocks on the ebb which resulted in a beaut of a Plaice for my father in law. Pushing 40cm and I would guess 1.5lbs...

    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...
