This looks awfully like a white bream to me, or do the juvenile black ones look like this?
caught on flattie rig, tide just rising, lugworm bait. Not what I was expecting (or looking for).
Now back on its travels...
Just moved to the island and decided to get back into sea fishing again after many years away. Used to fish the Kent/Sussex beaches. Looking forward to seeking out a few nice spots on the great southern beaches we have here.
Desperate to broaden my horizon, spots hit and species caught
A nice ray is on my list.
So I drive 2 hours , pay a decent amount for my bait , to be told my some young buck that the best way to catch rays is match hooks size 4,tiny baits and as close to rocks as you can. I was that gobsmacked...
Pumped for a sunny day with a little breeze , baits were prepped,all hooks changed etc , left the house in the Jurassic park wagon and I have to admit, I was quietly confident
Open the car doors and whoof, the hats flown off. Not a great sign.
Opted for 2/3s of the way up .
2 rods , both...
