Every year, the one species I don't catch bottom fishing is Bass. I get plenty spinning, but not on the bottom. I'm thinking its to do with distance, so here's the question for those bass catchers amongst you, how far out do you fish for old spiky? I know it will vary from venue to venue, but just generally speaking.:g:

I was fishing the small sandy section of the white wall in penarth last year from low water upto high and it was a bit rough. I ended up with 2 schoolies fishing only just more than the length of the shockleader and in about a foot of water??? Granted they were only about 6ozs a piece but it still proves that fish can be right on the shoreline:blink:

I've caught bass like that up the ranny as well, right under the tip, but like yours, they were tiddlers. Most of the bigger ones from there that I've witnessed or heard of seem to come from a fair way out.

I was fishing with rockling that weekend and only had 2 bass but the week before that fishing at the same distance i had 14 bass in one session so i think you just got to keep hitting different distances to see where the fish are
