    Catch report from Brighton Marina. I havnt fished here for 15 years so this was a little bit of a redicovery for me. I got down for about 7 A.M and the idea was to fish the top of tide to see if i could find a smoothhound or maybe a Plaice. PARKING- I wasnt going to pay the extortionate parking...

    After losing what I thought was all my rigs earlier in the week I found an old rig that's been hiding away in the back of my cupboard which saved me a trip to the fishing shop, I stripped it for parts and made a new rig (a double hook rig for a big squid) and headed down to the beach now that...
