only take 2 baits with you.. big and large rag. forget anything else and dont even tip it with anything like squid or mackerel.

so its rag only.

at the right time and in the right place lure work well but right now the water is coloured close to shore and bait fishing would be a better option.

You will catch bass on the plug from the North Gare, but not until the water temperature warms up and the sea is clearer. I would fish for them with either crab or frozen sandeel as that is what they are feeding on, fishing onto the hole off the block on the Gare. You also get bass in Greatham Creek, but i suspect if you fished rag there now you would just get crabbed constantly.

next time your there fish one hook with just rag and the other with anything you like. you,ll only take rag next time.

If you are plug or surf fishing then you will need to be wearing chest waders and will be in the water. Travel light and only take a rucksack of all the bits you need and a tripod or sandspike if using a bass rod or light beachcaster. I only fish one rod when surf fishing for bass and follow the tide, however this does depend on the venue though, the tide comes in quite quickle on the shallower beaches i fish on the south west coast of Scotland. If you fish the North gare though set up on the block and cast out into the hole behind the surf, as you are on a concrete platform you will not have to move your rod. Hopefully that helps mate, the Staincliffe is another mark where you may want to try for the bass.

True, Its hype. You do get the odd one or two bass and thornies caught at horden but cerntanly not in large quantaties that people seem to think. I wish we did though.
