Dabs are an occasional visitor to the marina. Not a hotspot for them, I would say the nearest location where you might find a regular number is Pevensey Bay.
Sole can be caught all along. Nighttime in bays 40-57 (East) will see you good, or if you are lucky enough to find the very end peg free, this peg, casting toward the green channel bouy. Tiny (size 6 ) hooks would be my recommendation, as would be a three ounce back lead sitting above your trace. Inch and a half sections of king rag is as good as anything.
On very rough days, when the water is very cloudy, the biggest sole have been caught, inshore on the rough ground (East)

Thank you Rob,I am greatful for your advice there,its not too often I fish the Marina and a jeorney over there is always enjoyable.Even more so with a bit of local knowledge and a plan of what to target.I plan to fish the marina at night for the Sole probably tomorrow.Meanwhile a trip to my local beach in search of some GG`s is on the cards.Will post a report later,cheers ! :)

Your tides are slipping into daylight. A better venue might be the end of the Newhaven East arm, casting towards the Buckle area of Seaford beach. All of the flood in darkness, you will have good sole fishing.

I must admit dabs are rarely something I target, but now you mention it I have found dabs amongst the rockling along there!
