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

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...
