    Hi there, I don't post on here very much (don't catch much worth commenting on normally !) but I just had a good session at Whitehaven last week. Now I normally fish the North East, Roker, SS, Hebburn, Etc., and I used to post on the NESA site from time to time but not for a while. Originally...

    Fished down to low on the big tide a couple of days back. Fairly quiet at first with just small whiting and dogfish coming out. Rays came on feed about 90 mins before low and I had two..one of around 2lb and another just over 9lb. Just before low tip wrapped over again and a good scrap...
  5. My first Ray North Beach

    East Coast Catch Reports
    Finally after many months of persevering I caught my first thornback Ray using a loop rig with size 2 hooks with Bluey as bait. Wasn't huge maybe a couple of pounds but a welcomed sight nonetheless. Also had some very small smoothhounds and plenty of whiting. No weed which was good:)

  10. Boat Oystercat 25/03/2016

    South & West Wales Catch Reports
    Friday is the only day of the bank holiday weekend that was remotely fishable, one of the other skippers already had his name down to take a trip, so I put my name down to join the trip - all I had to do was show up and fish. 7:30am saw us almost leaving one of the anglers in the marina, but...
  11. Shore Thank cod for rays of hope in February . . .

    South Coast & CI Catch Reports

  12. Boat Oystercat 10 - 11/01/2016

    South & West Wales Catch Reports
    As I worked all but the bank holidays over the Christmas / New Years period I thought I'd take this week off to use up the holidays I had rolled over from last year. Obviously we've had plenty of set backs in regards to weather, luckily the 10th's forecasts were varied but mostly reasonable -...
  13. Boat Lady Jue 11/12/2015

    South & West Wales Catch Reports
    The wind has been pretty relentless for more than a month. Only small chances of getting out have shown them selves. Out of Swansea a 12hr drop in wind speed doesn't always mean good conditions to head out in as we have the swell to contend with also. Luckily, Cardiff doesn't really have the...
