Hi all

Firstly thanks for all your replies to my original thread. Just thought I would let you know how it went today

Arrived at 6am after a very foggy journey from Whitstable. Took the long walk to the diamond and the two of us set up two rods each. Conditions were not ideal as it was very foggy but the water was clear and the sea flat calm.

All I can say is the plaice never came out to play for us. I ended up with 1 dab and 3 rocking. Mark just had the solitary rocking. We packed up about 12.30 and headed off back to Whitstable.

I must say that despite not getting a lot it was just nice to get out and have a go. Have been working like mad all winter indoors and it was nice getting out and enjoying the fresh air! Thanks Mark for the cracking egg and bacon rolls too!

Good luck anyone else going down there

Paul

Hi Shorething

I am a bit of a novice at catching plaice but I tried a 3 hook flapper with small hooks and coloured beads on one rod and a wishbone rig with small hooks and beads on the other one. Bait was lug. Tried at distance and close in. Good luck tomorrow.

Hi Goldie,
