Until I took up sea fishing I thought it was fairly common to catch fish from the shore.
Now nearly every mark I fish seems to be empty.
Is this a bad summer for shore marks?

I have some good fun with light gear down there, a couple of years ag I saw someone catch a conger in excess of 25lb from there on 8lb line, took him over 35 minutes to land!

I have seen big shoals of big mullet down there as well! I have seen caught mullet over 7lb in weight, I have caught pollack over 2lb, bass over 5lb, seen a 6lb thornback ray caught in a landing net that was swimming on the surface.

I have also had some fun with the whiting on the float down there, when you get a 2lb whiting on the float, it is great fun!

Small world, after you gave him the conger we didnt see him for a few weeks.
He kept on going up to his car with the conger in a black bag saying, "me have sex tonight"

If I remember, you also caught a dogfish there as well!
