Hope this year is going to be better than last. At the moment, fishing is very poor. just Pouting and the odd tiny Bass, terrible. Hardly a decent size fish in the sea. Even boats are only catching tiny four pound Codling. Not even big enough for the pan. This might be my last year if things don't improve.

Don't know, all trawled out I guess. Hythe used to be a good spot, but apart from Whiting in October, I have caught hardly anything all Winter. I am banking on summer Bass fishing, it might be the only time worth fishing in the year now. Winter and Spring are dead on the Kent coast. Next year I might fish from June to December, and forget the rest. Saves on petrol and bait. Who in their right mind wants to spend money to catch blasted Pouting and 4oz Dabs?
I had Bass to 5 lb last year concentrating on just that species.
I used to like Sole fishing, but there are hardly any left.
I think we have to be much more selective in the way we fish now. It's no good just going to a beach and chucking out the bait anywhere. I am going to study beaches at low tide, fish small beaches in coves, more productive than long open beaches. Fish near rocks and groins. Anything to increase my chances. Might be more interesting.
