I've tried on a couple of occasions over the last 4 weeks at eastney but no plaice. The water clarity just hasn't been good enough. However with the current easterly winds the water should start to clear. I'm sure the plaice are about, they just can't see the bait and bling!

there been a few small ones and a few flounder but again small, the whiting are taking everything that hits the water right now and not giving anything else a chance, so they might be there, so like the rest of us mate get down there and give it a go you might be the chosen one, but please let us know if you hit one.

Thats the key on Brighton shingle this late in the plaice season. The fish start at the end of January, and are right up to the edge of the shingle. Unfortunately, the weather prevented that being shown this year, unlike last years very calm if cold February. Then, they slip further and further offshore. Its perhaps the only fishing where I can say I have seen a direct correlation of distance to results for flatfish. If your father is poorly, I would still recommend Brighton, but from the marina. There is wheelchair access, and no energy sapping shingle to be walked on. East arm anywhere from bay 13 to 22 (the current max).
