Well bait was ordered last week
Things weren't looking great from the tackle shop reports
And reports were thin on here

So nothing much expected today
Junior myself and my dad off we set at 7 this morning
Collected bait from Hastings angling centre
Cheers martyn

Arrived to a lovely chocolate sea with a fear few rogue waves
I was caught out a couple of times and junior once
But then realised he could be quick on his feet :eek::eek:

To say it was slow would be a understatement
2 hrs up and nothing baits coming in as they went out
Single 2/0 beaded trace for Junior on a running lead simple set up

Myself 1 up 1 down with beads and the rig had the bait clips in the middle of the rig with 1/0

We tried herring , squid , yellow tails , fresh blacks , frozen blacks

Dad was first blood a ling ? :rolleyes:
The yellow tails were bigger :confused:

Second myself with a ling
Then another
Then 2 whitting so small the rod tip didn't move

Dad carried on with his ling
Then a major reel explosion :(
Then low and behold he had another :mad:
So he stuck to his fixed spool :)

Then I had a completely different kind of bite a rattle rattle rattle
Which resulted in a spotty

Tally for the day 6 spotties
1 dab
6 rockling
2 whitting

Then me and junior watched RX427 a trawler come in with another simultaneously
Then we watched the beach turn into a grave yard
And did it make my blood boil :mad::mad:

Where is the justification ?
Cod
Ray's
Dabs
Plaice
Dog fish
A smooth hound
It really p##sed me off ! !

I thought the nets had a size limit ?
I saw thawnies on the beach not much bigger than the palm of my hand
Perfectly good dogs , bigger thawnies , a smooth hound pup , and cod just chucked
If they reach the quotes stop bloody fishing !
Ruins it for everyone else

Bit confused here people are thinking you caught these fish but the report sounds different, or is it just me being stupid?

I caught the plaice with my son

Then the beach turned into a grave yard as the 2 trawlers in the picture came back
If they've reached thier quota then stop bloody fishing !
Don't carry on and ruin further stocks
Anymore bans on pleasure anglers and it'll be a sport not worth doing

Has anything been usual with the fishing with the recent weather patterns ?

I'm not the only one who's had plaice so far from the Sussex coast
That may well be the case mate but in coloured water ?. Dabs and flounder avidly feed in murky seas but plaice do not. Obviously you get the odd flukey fish in muddy water and the odd one at night (rare). Many top anglers who target place would be extatic to catch 6 plaice in the right conditions (ie clear water flat calm). You must be one lucky guy. Anyway a good net result for you.
