fished the ribble from 1.15 today to 3pm (managed to shake the family off for a bit) anf fished at the back of 'trax' on the ribble and caught 8 flounder. all fish were good sized and returned alive (as always with me) and all took mackeral bait. it was the only bait i had. h/w was around 1.40pm and i caught 4 in 15mins before then and 4 after. missed a couple of bites and the fish seemed to be biting hard today. :)

so if your after a confidence booster, then the ribble's the place to go. :clap3:

i had 2 chub on a 2 hook metal paternoster with garden worms and a beach-caster off the bullnose 2 years back ,
one was 2 to 3 pound the second was 4 to 5 pound i thought they were mullet at first


never heard of bass that far up have had them at lytham {seafield rd } but never any further :unsure:

Daz: I've caught hundreds of chub out of the tidal Ribble around the Old and Union bridges at Preston in my time. In fact, a guy caught a British record chub there but didn't declare it as he didn't want the place being overrun with anglers.

I was never sure how far downstream the chub go, but I've seen some pretty big shoals of dace not to far from the bullnose!

Hi. moncrieff...know what you mean about those mullet... impossible:giveup:

I used to have moorings down there, felt you could reach over and pick them out of the water because they came up that close.:boat:

Fysherman, we need to sought out a date with "billy no baits" and myself to test out the bait pump, looking forward to the fish&eat:clap3:

I'll drop you a line shortly..

Does anyone know what has happened to all the cormorants that used to sit on the old wooden boat mooring about a mile downstream from the Bullnose? (ie. About half a mile upstream from the canal link at Savick Brook)

A few months ago there were between 50 - 70 there and the numbers had been increasing steadily for a few years.

But now they have all gone! I wonder if anyone has been culling them?

Hi stroller - I was down there a couple of weeks ago walking and I noticed that there were fewer than usual but still quite a few.
