Not great there last night, me and Jems called it a day at 12.15 keep getting weeded out and lost quite a bit of terminal tackle. We were at the groin just to the left of the pipe. Essex D, two groins along had a few, but we were fishless.

Also fished there last night but we had 4 between 3 of us to 14lb 3oz. PB's to me, my brother and dad. All fish came at distance, as the weed buried our line close in and we had to pull for a break.

Congrat's on your PB, I think mine and Jakes pb's could have been broken if that band of weed in the surf wasn't around. The forced change of took choice I made didn't help, because I couldn't get the ones i normally use.

But hay ho it was good arriving early watching the tide come in and chatting with you guys.
Dave and Jake.

Congrats on the PB.

I packed up at just after 12, fishless, I'm glad to know what I wasn't the only one having serious difficulties with the weed, every cast in under 2 mins had 5-10lbs of weed on. I just got fed up in the end... What was really annoying is the guys fishing on the beaches either side of me both were catching fairly regular by the time we called it a night.

On the upside though, I think Ferring is a very under rated Bass/Mullet venue... I will have to go down there with my light gear and see what they're....

If you start fishing while the water is still 10 yards off the end of the groynes you'll still catch and should have about 2 hours before the weed gets irritating, though seems that some groynes are worse than others...

We fished the groin right near the pipe. The groin next to us was elevated and P Puff and Essex D were fishing there were getting weed but not the lumps we were getting. we called it a day at 12.15 as were getting through too many rigs and leaders. We fished just as the water approached the groin at about 9.45. set up by 8 though and just waited.

..f/m,.. ferring/goring are indeed magnificent venues for bass,cod and huge smoothies, if u know how and when to fish for them.!!. ie tactics bait/tackle... its all part of the fun of angling ,.try the long pipe off sea lane, 400 plus yds off the beach in calm spring tide conditions.. big bass can be caught on both sides mainly on the left in the lagoon of water about 3-4 ft deep.!! this is all bang low tide fishing ok ??. lug,crab,mackie,spinner and fly all work in the right conditions.. foxy52..
