Get yourself some sandeel or Mackerel belly strip and take your light gear to Goswick beach which is only a couple of miles from Hagerston and fish close to the ship wrecks clearly visible at low tide and you will be in with a good chance of
plenty flounder with the odd decent turbot for good measure. The 1st 2 hours of the flood will be best. Spring tides fish much better than neaps so avoid the smaller tides if you can. If the sea is calm then the Turbot will be a obliging and if there is some sea on then Bass are a possibilty but the light gear could be a problem as it weeds up with some sea on. Best of luck.

Hi

Baz crabs not much good for the turbot but will sort out the flounder and maybe a bass. The Turbot seem to like either sandeel or Mackeral belly strip which I suppose looks like a sandeel in the tide.


John Park at cottage on left about 200 yards before the Beachcomber campsite and go through gate to the beach and keep walking till you get to the sea which is a long way at low tide. Alternately when you reach the Goswick golf club go straight on and park up at fence next to path and walk 100 yards to beach and pick any feature on the beach (there are a few gulleys etc) and fish here, its not so much of a walk to the low tide mark here.

Alan.
