If you were advising a complete novice, who wanted to get a few 'quick wins', what species do you think they should target? Taking into account: ease of access (not needing a boat or to cast to the horizon), range of baits, range of rigs, but possibly with geographical variation.

In Cornwall, my vote would go to the pollack with wrasse as runner up.

Along the Fylde coast I`d have to say the whiting.
They will come very close in at high water and a simple 2 hook flapper with a small bit of squid will see double hook ups galore.
Not everyone`s idea of fun but when the big baits are quiet it keeps you busy.

Im gonna dive deep here...

Ok so we know some species can seem very obliging at times, but no matter how easy you think they might be, when you realy want to catch them dont they bite you in the asss??

Likewise on days when you arent expecting much, or not particuklarly wanting a specific species, dont they just anoy you and take anything you throw at them!

On your avverage mark where Dogfsih are abundant you seem to catch stacks of the things.But if you say, yes i will go and garanteee as many as i want,you know what happins!

Colies have a habit of bieng relentless up here! As do mackeral, but then again, when you want to fill the freezer ive had some frustrating sessions searching!

Every species has thier day i believe.... Ive heard of days when anglers claim tope to start bieng a pain taking anything and everything! Wouldnt complain at that

:cool:

Definately the coalfish up this way. Sometimes I think they fight each other to throw themselves on the hook. But this is usually only the small ones. :(
