Hi there, I have been thinking about fishing the Tyne for flounders and eels at the Copthorne hotel and similar marks. I was wondering if anybody could provide me with information on the best times of year, best tides, baits etc. I was thinking of havin a light beachcaster chucked out into the channel fishing a 3-5oz lead with either crab or rag for bait. Another lighter bass ord lobbed 10-20 yards out fishing crab or eartworms. If anybody could provide information on tactics and timing i would appreciate it. Many times i have driven over the bridge and seen people fishing and thought i must give it a go.
