Visited Milford on sea last tuesday, 3rd.
Set up to the left of the rocks, about 100 yards towards the castle.

Beautiful morning, got there about 9:30am, finished to about 5pm.
Wasnt too cold, sun was out, almost flat calm.
Tides weren't high. So enough water throughout the session.
2 rods out. 1 rod Pulley style dropper. Pennelled. Bluey, squid and sprats.
1 rod, clip down 2 hook loop thing! Name has escaped me!
Playing around with rag and tipping it with squid and sprat.

Slow start. Hour in, the pennell gave me a nice 42cm bass. Reloaded. Back out.
Then shortly after another bass, similar size.
Needless to say, I got rid of the 2 hook clipped and the rag. Loaded up a bluey with squid on a pulley pennell and in came a dog.
Couple more bass all around 40cm up until I packed up.
4 bass and 1 dog in total.
New to the salt fishing so that was a good day for me. Made the drive worth it.

Could of stayed there well into the evening but light was fading, didnt plan on being there into dark, so no torches. Plus dinner was on the table!!!

I spoke to a couple of guys on the beach who fish the shingle and castle regularly.
They were saying the shingle does throw up some Ray's.
I'll be going back, further towards the castle and no worms. Just fish baits!!

Lovely day on a new mark to me.
Anyone fancies a tandem session, let me know happy to join in and make friends!!
Couple of pics below of some I caught.
All released to grow and be caught again!

If anyone has any tips as well. Will be grateful of them, although I've been reading a few posts from months and years gone by on the forum.

Cheers

Cheers bud,
Am in good hands, mrs brother and old man are keen as mustard for the salt water angling learning loads from them and loving every minute.
Work a lot of weekends, so find myself on my own on marks and teaching myself, but as I say, it's taken over my life away from work and I love it!

Nice report, glad to see some reports from there as I'm tempted this weekend.

I've had some great days at milford, always get a bit more variety on the worms but better fish on squid/fish baits.

Hi Jimmyion how's it going mate? Looks like you had a good day at Milford. I went down there last week but got blasted off the beach by the south westerlys! Tried casting 7oz' with blueys but couldn't get past the breakers and every rig was tangling up so I went home! Anyway, I see that you're quite new to sea fishing and looking for someone to go with so thought I'd say hello as I'm in the same situation. I get out every weekend around the same area and have had some brilliant days on marks between Hurst and Poole targeting Rays and hounds. I'm happy fishing any tide and almost any weather, just to get away from the misses . Let me know if you want to meet up and we'll arrange something around that area.
Cheers, Rob.
