Hi everyone, this is my first post, we're hoping to try Chapel St Leonards next week on the midday tides but I've noticed they are pretty low tides, just over 5m? Will this affect the fishing and which methods and bait would you recommend please?

Tight lines

Hi and welcome to the site. Its always good to greet another fellow fisherman. Regarding Chapel St Leonards there is a pretty good article on the site about Chapel Point. You'll find it at the top of the page under "Fishing Marks". Another good idea is to use the "search" facility also at the top of the page. If you type in "Chapel St Leonards" you'll get hold of lots of info!!
Trunch Lane is another good venue at Chapel St Leonards. There is a big car park there and a tackle shop at Lakeside Leisure which sells bait. They will also be able to give you up to the minute advice regarding bait, what's about and where!!
Personally I quite like the smaller tides. Weed has been a bit of a problem recently, but I find it tends to be less of an issue if the tides are smaller and the weathers kind. As for bait frozen black lug, squid and/or mackerel will certainly catch fish. As for rigs a pair of 2/0's pennel style clipped down or a pulley rig with a 2/0's pennel would be my choice. The pennel, I find helps with presentation.
Best of luck and please send us report after your session!!
THANK COD FOR FISHING!!

Hello matey
Like you i am fairly new to this site. Been fishing around Chapel over the last few months and have drawn blanks nearly every time. My mate however has caught a nice size plaice and small dab and a weaver for which i got stung by (oouch) No sign of smoothhounds or bass though. We have tried nearly all baits suggested except peeler crab, and different rigs but i just think the fish are not around. It appears to be quiet in most places. Locals are a good source of info and well as the tackle 4 u shop at Ingolmels. We have tried the beach from Chapel point, six marshes up to Huttoft and yesterday we tried Sutton on sea now the holidays are over and i caught a small Dab on the in-coming tide (yipeee) The best thing about all this is that no matter if we catch fish or not it is a great day out and so so relaxing.
Hope you are sucessful and that you enjoy yourself and i hope to bump into you on the beach for a chat sometime. :bye1:
