Can anyone offer advice as to the best tides and weather conditions to fish the Rame Head area. I'm relatively new to this and need all the help that I can get. Got some holidays coming up and want to spend a good bit off it around that area.
MODS - please move this to the SW Section for better coverage.
Rame itself fishes over high and you will catch mackerel, gar, pollack and wrasse over high - neaps or springs.
Rame itself is actually pretty steep in places and only really accessible after there has been a sustained period of dry weather. I ventured that way a few weeks back and wouldn't do it again in a hurry as the ground is thick with bracken and gorse.
You would be better off fishing queener point, which has better access, although still steep!
Try a search - there have been a few reports from that area.
Not fished Penlee yet. If you park where you are allowed to park it is a bit of a yomp. A few marks that will be obvious if you get down there - Wrasse, Pollack, Mackerel, Gar and the chance of a Bass. Rag, Lug Crab (Peeler or hardbacks) will find you the wrasse. Mackerel strip under a float will find you the mackerel and gar. Sandeel will find the pollack.
Not fished Whitsands yet wither - I must do that. The cliff path puts me off though!! Several spots along the stretch of beach - good for Bass. Lug and crab for the bass. Sandeel for Ray.
