yes, i had 3 3lb schoolies last week in the surf on single lugworm on a fixed paternoster clipped down, cast to where the waves began to break. lost another, (hook pull) not heard of anything large coming out, but i am still trying. was expecting a few more schoolies han ive had, but its quiet all over at the moment. ive been pestered with pout and rockling all this week, then snapped my beachcaster last night after my tripod collapsed and the rod fell over a concrete groyn, snappin the tip off. peelers are not around in abundance, the only ones i can find are small immature crabs, probably on their first peel, so ive left those alone, they were to small to think about using as bait.
Fished 1 hour before low to 3 hours afterat Shoreham harbour wall one good bite 20 yard run and missed it. Very little caught - one had 1lb bass, 2 flounder, 2 mackeral, another had a small smoothound. Others like me nothing.
