Hello all,

Im looking for some advice, as to where to fish on Canvey Island? Basically I would like to fish for anything that comes along. Also some advice as to rigs(inc. lead size), I will probably use rag, lug, crab and squid as i work in a tackle shop.

And advice appreciated, Thanks.

Thanks for the advice guys. After talking to a few regulars in the shop, I did have a feeling the Black Jetty would have probably been the best place to have a go.

What lead size and what rigs what you use of there. A few suggested something look a 2/3 hook flapper or a pulley rig i think it was.

Sorry for all the questions lol, but im a Carp Angler, so don't have the faintest at the moment.

This time of year use big baits/hooks and drop it straight down the pylons on the end platform for bass.

You will need a drop net, 30lb line/leader and I find I can just hold bottom with a 10oz long wire gripper at peak tidal flow.
