Just got in from a 4 hour session between the ship and lobster and shorne fort. Fished 2 hours up and 2 hours down. The flood was definitely more productive with 70% of the fish coming in the first 2 hours.

The whiting were in abundance, caught about 20 all in. Some small ones, but a lot were of a decent size. The crabs came out on the ebb (managed to actually reel 4 in!) and they were hungry!

Interestingly on two occasions where I wasn't quick enough to reel in the whiting's I had on the line were actually attacked by something bigger. They came out with big chunks missing. Couldn't catch whatever that was!

That could have been squid! I had a few strange bites off the kayak on lures the other day. Managed to hook one bring it to almost the surface and it broke loose but left me with one of its suckers on the hook.
Just a thought!

Hi Shaneo, thanks for the report. I'm not familiar with that area. Is that fished from the path/seawall or is that a trek across the mud? I often take my boy on the Tilbury ferry. Is it worth fishing near there? Cheers

At high tide you can fish from a path. When the tide is out there is some mud. It's also worth using lead lifts as there are a few snags.

At this time of year it's full of whiting, so if your son is like mine and he just likes catching, it's pretty good fun.
