Hi - anyone fished Barn pool, off of Mt Edgecombe, plymouth sound? I fished there last winter, caught a couple whiting but that was it - i was just wandering what sort of things come up from there in the summer?
You hav'nt said if you intend fishing from shore or boat, I fish from boat and if the weather restricts me from fishing my normal marks, than I have been known to frequant Barn Pool on the odd occasion. Fish caught over the years have been mackeral, bass, pollack,pouting and one cod (71/2 LB). I hope this is of some help.
cheers for that - i meant shore fishing but thanks anyway - i sometiems get out on my neighbours boat so maybe i can persuade him to go there. would mind trying to bag a ray, i guess prawn is best for those? ill love to try it in the winter for cod though too.
BArn pool is roughly between Mt edgecombe and drakes island - copy the whole next paragraph (below) into your browsers address line and it should take you to the right map. if it doesnt work go to www.multimap.com, type in cremyll and zoom into that area.
park at cremyll, near where the ferry comes in from devonport. then walk into the mt edgecombe park - u go through the main gate where the gift shop is and walk around left and go through another set of gates - thats where the cafe is.fish from anywhere you can get to the water should put you into the deep water. alternativly u could fish from where you park the car - from the beach by the ferry.
