Morning Bill, i fished Rowhedge years ago and caught flounders and eels. i fished on the grass next to the Anchor pub. I would cast out into the middle for eels and fish close in for the flounders. For bait i used Mackerel and as i dug bait for a living i would use gutted lug as well, Rag is always a favourite. As for Tackle shops the nearest would be Colchester bait and Tackle on Harwich Rd. Never tried lure fishing but if there are any schooly Bass about you never know. Anyway hope this gives you some idea. ............. Cheers Lofty
