Hi Robbo

I am in Poole and at the moment it looks like the spider crabs are a problem all along the bournemouth/poole beach.... Poole harbour is a little queit too. you might find the fishing at sandbanks a little better although the lettice type weed may be a problem....

I suppose you could try Hurst castle or mudeford...although i don't know how that area is fishing....there could be a few sole about?

Hi robbo

As with most places rag worm is the No1 bait...sandeel dead or alive would would be a good second,and if you can get some peeler crabs...and then mackeral and squid. The problem at the moment is all the spider crabs....if you can use a rig that will hold the the hooks off the bottom.. you could try using a ball lead on the maine line with a hook length of about 3feet with a flonder float about 6inches from the hook.... I should catch you a few fish?

Hi mate,

Rockling, flatties and small plaice around at the moment, along with the occassional whiting/small pollock.

Bait to use would be rag, number one bait. Take some lug aswell if you can, make some cocktails.

I was down there a week or so ago to meet upw ith some mates, cocktails of rag/lug tipped with slipper limpet was working well to catch.

Good luck

hello people i fish everywhere lol... from hengistbury head to studland , chesil and abbotsbury ,hurst, ... and love the bmouth pier in the summer.. ...but at the moment groyne 52 to hengistbry head is producing fish, unless you just want mackies, then go to abbotsbury.

went to abbotsbury on the 23.05.10 caught 24 mackies .1 was freaking huge biggest macky i've ever caught thought it was a bass when it came in lol... almost as long as my mac keyboard lol... few joeys which are gunna be bait .

fished a couple of nights at christchurch with a mate. i caught :
2 bass, 1 flounder, 2 whiting, lost a big fish in the surf (probably bass or hound) , mate caught ,2 rocklings, 2 whiting, and a pout. ... all on rag, everything else was being left (squid, peeler, hermit)

its all about the lumi beads !!!

Dry suit it is then with 2 15Ltr airtanks and watch those spiders run! Think I'll quite this fishing lark and go back to scuba with speargun lol.
Went for 4 hours at hurst castle by shingle bank last week end and some people had a couple of bass but weed was a problem especially with light rod and tackle. Will give mudeford a go tonight in fact just walking out the door. Will use sand eels and may try spinning if light holds if not mght try on the float.
