I fished the Hoe a few weeks back,it was crowded then too - all eastern Europeans with their telescopic rods - and they were catching eff all !
Myself and two mates had dozens of makeral and loads of the usual small stuff too.
hiErr nothing too exciting to report
A few pout, a few small wrasse, one mackerel and a goby between 2 of us
Was absolutely packed down there, but didn't see or hear of anyone having much
