Hi
Ive recently bought a small -very- dayboat and moored it at brightlingsea.
its just a Mayland 14' with a 4hp engine.
ive never boat fished before so i really need some advice eg - is there much fishing on the colne near brightlingsea- any advice on rigs bait etc.
as i said it is only a small boat so i would have to stay within the colne boundaries really
any advice would be greatly appreciated
cheers
Nigel

There's plenty of shallow bars to fish over at low tide for Bass. The deep channel off Mersea Island will fish well sometimes (but stay out of the way of boat traffic). As you learn your way around you could fish near the bar for Bass - but be especially careful on big tides and rough weather as the bar can get nasty. Try Pyefleet Channel for some good Eel fishing and fish on the edge of the deep channel out from Batemans Tower for some excellent Whiting fishing in the season (Oct - Jan).

That should get you started.:)

many thanks for that- I'll give it a go- just got to buy some cheap sea fishing gear now
When you get your gear sorted out let me know - I live in the town so could perhaps meet you at some time with a chart and give you some more exact marks.
