Hi all,

Posted a minute ago about where to fish next Saturday day tide, after Dave Oldman's input (cheers Dave), i have decided to give good old Dungie a bash.

I have never fished at Dungie before, so just wondered what part you guys would advise to fish? Preferably a spot with limited snags and plenty of fish! Isnt there a huge tide run through there at high tide? Is the weed bad there at the minute? I will be fishing the tide up and down during the day.

Also, what baits would you suggest? What can i expect to catch there during the day? Much at all?

Sorry about all the questions, would just like to be prepared so all thoughts and past experiences (good and bad!) welcome.

Cheers guys, tight lines,

Will :fishing1:

Behind the powerstation is productive, as is the beach by the new lighthouse at the end of the wooden causeway.

Black lug is the bait of choice this time of year although blow works pretty well also.

I also take fresh peeler and a fish bait to try to seek out bass/early codling.

Casting distance is important as at dungie, many people have poor results as they cast over the top of the fish.

Behind the back of the powestation would be best, but during the daylight I wouldn't expect much, its much better at night. As for distance well at the point you want to cast far to reach the drop off and even behind the back of the powestation for the codling ( a bit early yet) you still want to cast far but for other species bass/sole you don't need to cast far.
Goodluck

low water and behind the power station for sole.

i'll be there next sunday evening if the weathers alright.
Agree with u Dave, can fish most of the way up sometimes too, lug on a short running ledger (can be clipped up if needed)

Caught sole at all distances there so keep an eye on ya neighbours n see if they're getting any and adjust ya tactics accordingly

Always a chance of a bass round there too

Good luck

i'll have to try a short ledger on my bass rod down there next week,never used one for sole.

i like to use a 6 foot paternoster with all the hooks above the weight.short snoods spaced out on the trace to cover more ground.i keep the rod low in the rest to try and keep it all on the sea bed.

i usually do alright for sole this way.

Thanks for your responses guys, so looks like we all agree that behind the power station seems to be the favoured spot.

Is it snaggy behind the power station at all or is that generally a clear spot? Is it as good fishing the tide up and down as it is fishing low water? Because due to the time of the tide Saturday i will be there during high tide.

Thorbackflounder, you said about pumping lug there, i didnt realise you could there, do you have to do this at low tide i assume?

Also can anyone recommend any good bait shops in Dungeness? Ideally as near to the power station as possible. I would like to get some lug but don't really want to buy them where i live as they may blow on the way to Dungeness (its quite far for me).

Cheers,

Will :fishing1:

To be honest I think the down tide is better espically in the winter at the point. Also round the back of the powerstation I have caught a 8lb bass on the down tide, so I wouldn't knock it.

Thanks again for your inputs guys. I guess like most venues different tides produce different results at different times. Because of what time high tide is i will be fishing it up to high tide and part of the way down so i will see what happens.

Does anyone know if the weed is still bad there? Thats something im hoping is gone.....:whistling

Is fishing behind the powerstation relatively clear snag-free ground?

Thanks for the name of that fishing shop Dave, i will look that up and see what they have. Any other trusted bait sources in the Dungeness area people know of??

Fished dungie yesterday.

The weed was a joke until the last 2 hours of the flood when it let off substantially.

The fishing was pants however as it was blowing a hoolie and making it very, very rough down there.

All we caught were pin-whiting (which were livebaited of course) and that was it.

Amazed me that the tinsel chuckers were sticking to it in very coloured water, that was very rough, and with a casting distance of 17 yards or so with the wind they were chucking into!

Bit of a long shot but does anyone know of a decent cottage to rent (Weekly)in the immediate area. I would fish 24/7 but my other half needs a comfortable base or I am on my own for the week. Actually, thinking about it that does not sound too bad :whistling

Thanks

Hmmm, i am really not sure what to do now, i would love to fish dungie but if the weed is going to be a problem is doesnt sound too appealing.....

Where else could i go, would Deal beach be a better option?? Or Hythe??....:wallbash:

Have you thought about a static caravan at Romney Sands Caravan Park?
