Does anyone know how it's been fishing here as of late? Me n my mate are going for a bash tomorrow from high tide down to low. Hoping for a few whiting or maybe even a codling if the fishing gods ate with us. Will post a report after. Thanks

Well what a night friday night turned out to be! Bites a plenty, great conditions and even a surprise of a dogfish!
Me and craig set up 2 rods each using 2 and 3 hook flappers.... the sea was like a pond and it was on the peak of high tide so we used 4oz grippers.... Craig opened the scoring with a nice flatty to which i managed a response with a 6" whiting. For a laugh i set up a 9ft telescopic rod i've got with a 030 size RD fixed spool on 6lb line. I used a donut weight and a single hook flapper with a lump of squid on it.... 5 minutes later my rod nearly shot off the pier.... after a good fight with it and the rush of knowing i only had 6lb line on i had a nice 14" whiting... (i caught something else about 15 minutes later but it snapped off) :oops: .... anyway back to the main rods..... as the tide was receeding we carried on with a steady flow of whiting and flatties.... then craig had a massive knock on one of his rods and fought for a couple of minutes with a fish and struggled to get it up the pier with me hauling it up by hand in the end. Much to craigs and my surprise it was a little dogfish of about 16-18" long. We had 2 8"whiting and another flatty before calling it a day. Apart from craigs tea (my14" whiting) all other fish were put back. we were fishing on frozen calamari with about half of a 5" squid on each hook.
