  2. Fishing 4 spurs Bristol channel

    Boat Angling / Angling Afloat
    Hi guys just wonder as I've never actually targeted spurs before, where to are the likely areas in the channel off the boat would you go after these species? Not asking for secret marks just point in the general direction. Based out of Cardiff I am. Thankyou I advance

    South & West Wales Catch Reports
    Due to poor weather and a lock closure for maintenance we haven't been out for a month or so. With a reasonably favourable weather forecast falling on a tiny tide (very rare occurrence at the moment) I decided to target some of the offshore wrecks. Long story short, it was pants!! We covered...

    South & West Wales Catch Reports
    A very small lull in the weather saw us heading to an area that normally provides good general fishing; to start the swell was fairly sizable but as the ebb started the swell eased so did the wind. Fishing here was slow; this could have been down to the seal feeding behind the boat, along...

    South & West Wales Catch Reports
    Smallest of weather windows presented its self on Sunday; the tide was small, big westerly swell and wind were from the south-east, which meant fishing locally would be difficult to find somewhere where we'd hold reasonably well, so we headed over the other side to fish one of the wrecks...

    Fishing has taken a little bit of a back seat as my first child was born on 04/12/2017 - Joshua Gifford, weighing in at 6lb 8oz, That said, I've had a lot of time off work, so I've managed to sneak out a couple of times when my Mrs has had plans with her mum etc. 18/12/2017 There were a number...
  7. Bristol Channel fishing for Spurdogs

    South West Catch Reports
    Hi, haven't done a massive amount of fishing in the Bristol Channel and am hoping to get out and try and target Spurs. Am I correct in thinking that Porlock or Bossington would be a good place to try? Has anyone got any advice they could offer me on say the best tides and conditions. Cheers

    South & West Wales Catch Reports
    I've been fishing plenty but not had a chance to put a report on here; With the forum seemingly being taken over by people preaching about the morality of keeping fish, I thought I'd use my work break to knock up a report in an effort to get this section back to being related to "Catch reports...

    South & West Wales Catch Reports
    31-12-2016 New years eve we decided to have a run over to the other side for a change. We left Swansea on the first lock, arriving in blue anchor bay at around 9am. Bites came pretty quickly with a few small thornbacks, conger and whiting - but bites died off after a few hours, so we moved a...

    South & West Wales Catch Reports
    17th: A fairly late start @ 8:30am, it was the day after my works due so I didn't think it would be wise to start too early! Thankfully as we made our way out into the bay it was mirror flat!! So the hangover wouldn't be amplified by the boat slopping around. We started the day on a small bit...

    South & West Wales Catch Reports
    Tiny tides and a fair forecast saw me put down to take an offshore trip, only 5 of us wanted to go; so I decided to stay a little closer to home than originally planned. 7:30am saw us all aboard and heading out through the locks out onto a glassy sea. It didnt take too long to get to the wreck...

  13. Advice Spurdogs

    East Coast Catch Reports
    I hear that the Suffolk long-liners are having problems with large amounts of spurdogs, for which they have no quota. How come these never turn up in shore anglers catches, especially the deep marks like Orford? Wrong baits? Probably not, the liners use squid the same as us. Spurdogs are even...
