Hi Daz i had read your bit about grannies bay and followed everything except the bit about the clams didnt realise they were so effective, must admit never dug for those by the sound of it you get out to low water but what do you look for - yes got near the steps

flounder at fairhaven can be very particular with baits, at one time a lot were caught on shrimp, especially further down towards lytham (fairlawns), where shrimp boats landed. ive fished two rods: one with creeper rag and one with crab, the crab outfished the rag 14 to 1. He sells clams and sometimes razor fish at Lanigans in Lytham, check it out, also if he has any wild bass in his window, its worth a chuck because he nets them in the estuary.
