Hello,

I'm trying to organise a trip down to Brighton or Seaford this weekend, but I have been stifled by the rough weather. Its exposed a glaring lack of fishy knowledge when it comes to catching something other than mackerel.

Presumably, the sea will still be too murky to yield those tasty maccies, even by Sunday. Thus, I am stumped as to what fishes will be on offer and how to catch them.

Wouldn't have a clue what to target during daylight hours. At dusk, would it be worth trying out some plugs for bass?

Also, not sure what day would be the best, fri/sat/sun. Any advice would be gratefully appreciated! :)

Tight lines all

bass are really thickening up now,this weather ,although not ideal for us,is ideal for the bass especially down here,so grab yourself some good heavy gripleads and have a bash in the rough on friday night,the wind is easing on sat night,so lighter leads and gear might be usable,as for spinning/plugging forget it the water is going to retain too much colour,my advice would be seaford.low and up to high into darkness ,mackeral baits on a 5/0 kamasan b940 hook,and whatever lead you can hold out there with,if its rough(it will be friday night) try and hold your gear out there behind the first breaker,big gulley,if it does calm right down ,switch to sandeels/freshouts or even livepouting,although the latter will probably be to hard to find,good luck,craig

If it does calm down at all then it could be good for sole on the marina in daylight. King rag on a size 4 running ledger should do the trick.
