hia bruce. you live handy to some good marks at broughton, and the shore at gutterby used to be one of them. you feally need to study the beach at gutterby, at low water on a big tide. at the bottom of the track and just to the right, you will find a sandy clean area and directly in front there is an area of roughish ground where you will probably lose quite a bit of tackle. as you go further left towards silecroft the ground gradually becomes cleaner. fishing after dark or just before dawn is often more productive. crab and rag will do the trick, but i always had best results on blow lug. dont know what the boat fishing is like now, but a good few years ago the quantity, quality and the variety of fish were second to none. if you want more detailed advice, the millom lads know there stuff.:secret::thumbs:

Thanks for your reply,I did loose plenty of tackle and was using freshly dug lugworm.I don't know if I was too far out or too far in.Also wether I was using the right rig,right hook size and enough weight.
I have tried off the blocks at Hodbarrow into the channel at low and high tide.All I achieved was a collection of bait robbing crabs.
I will keep trying as my wife doesn't believe I am actually going fishing.:wallbash:
