Hi everyone hope your all ok and ice to meet you ! I've just joined the forum I don't normally go on forums but got so many questions and I can't find the awnsers online
I've only been sea fishing off Bognor pier for a month and a half and I love it ! It's my favourite thing I love doing it and so far I'm the only women up there ! I have made some great friends, the first day I never been fishing but caught a small smoothie
But since haven't caught anything I've been getting loads of bites but not catching , I don't strike straightaway, I wait but then I reel in and there is nothing there. I'm using size 1 and 2 hooks Aberdeen and using Aberdeen size 4's and using mackerel and rag as bait. Someone said to me the weight should just be bouncing on the seabed, is this true ? And if I'm casting out far how do I check it is bouncing I'm using a 2 flapper rig and a boom rig with a distance lead , everyone on the pier is catching fish and I'm blanking every time does anyone else fish up there think I need a fishing session with someone who would see what I'm doing wrong.
Thankyou for all your help ☺

Like Alex says come along to the meet we are all friendly people :) Alex will be giving us all tips and fishing instructions for the local area he's the local guru and know's the pier extremely well he's blanked there lots too :Dso your in great company (in fact the meet was going to be on the pier but we was worried about it collapsing under the weight of 20+ people) and maybe the lack of room ;)
Anyway please pop down we'll be glad to have you and any friends you want to bring down too, more the merrier :thumbsup:

Shame he don't know about where the fish are ;) :D problem with Bognor it's a summer season town and the fish seem to know it too, they see the gates to Butlins closed and bugger off
