Hi all

Been hunting plaice for the last month or so on my local Pompey beaches with nothing to show for my trouble and only hearing/seeing the odd small one come out so when I got an invite from a mate of mine to fish Brighton for them on Friday I could not say no especially since I have never been there before.

I was up at 06:30 and picked up and on the road by 07:00. Stopped off to pickup fresh blacks and squid.

Arrived to a surprisingly empty beach, flat calm and gin clear water. Had baits in the water by 9:30 blacks tipped with squid strips on a wishbone dropper with size 2 hooks.

My mate was in first with a flounder followed shortly by me with nice plump 33cm Plaice, BOOM YES target achieved on my first cast, thought to myself this is going to be a good day!!

We traded blows cast for cast with a couple of double shots (a first for me too) too until just before high when the action stopped and the bites died off. Packed up at 16:30.

Finally tally for the day was 11 plaice to me and 12 plaice and a flounder to my mate!

Not a single plaice under size all between 28-34cm. No monsters but no baby's either.

Cheers
Brenden

Nice report there chap I fished at hove . Fishing was slower and less fish . Still a plaice on the beach is better than a plaice in the bush so to speak . Hope the weather holds up . We will be moaning about May rot next .

Nice going. Funny how it's very hit and miss on the Brighton beaches at the moment... Let me guess at the distance thing... Err long range? Lol

Thanks chaps. Yeah it was at my max range, I have never measured my cast but I reckon 80-120. Nothing came in on the short casts.

Well done on the session fellas ,only ever had 3 in my best plaice venture. Is there no free parking at all on the Brighton front Asada used to be free for 4 hrs and the multi carpark we used to stay all day and night free of charge ?
