I'd suggest asking on the regional forum page, and say where you fish and what method.

Plugging can be especially tricky, as in deep water plugs may not go deep enough a dexter wedge or weighted shad could be better.

Dont be disheartened We have all experienced this at 1st , i started off driving 130-500+ miles each trip to try new marks all over the coastline blanking on several occasions , what i started to learn about the ocean is its very big and unpredictable place ,so you need several methods and tactics to fish to make it productive , i dont know how you were fishing , maybe you were trying everything!! but thats what i do now , im not buying £50-60 worth of petrol to get to a mark and blank NO way.... so i take everything at my disposal maybe a bit OTT but i haven't blanked for the last 18years ,the previous years dont count because i was learning all the tricks!! this time of year i will take
spinning gear loads of plugs dexters etc , float gear , bottom fishing gear , every bait i can get my hands on fresh and frozen , and just recently ive invested in some salt fly gear Why not!!
every trip can be a learning curve , studying the marks at high and low water can give you an idea were the fish might be for example:- on a holiday trip to Brixam Devon with my family one year we were stopping at a Haven site , the sea was walking distance from our caravan
so during the day it was low water we all went to the beach , like normal families do with bucket and spades towels etc , i sat studying the beach the part i was interested in was were the sand turned to be mixed with biggish rocks and out further was several very big rocks about the size of a small car i made a note of were these were so as not to be casting on too them later at high water .
Later that evening the family settled for the night and off to the beach i went with some nice juicy ragworms and some squid , all the rocks were now out of site so my 1st cast went on to the smaller ones i had my eye on i thought THATS were there gonna be feeding ......so 1st cast about 5 miniuts later bang my rod tip went , to a scoolie bass about 1lb
that was my 1st ever sea bass!! 2nd cast 3rd cast now two rods out
, both rods went!! 2 more scoolies! bit bigger this time , the light was now starting to go and the fishing just did not stop till my bait run out!!
i had 8 scoolies and a few decent pouting , i kept 2 of the bass they were just in size to keep , great session.......DONT GIVE UP......

Check-out Phil Arnott on this site. A better sea angler I have yet to meet, he is also a qualified L2 coach, so you will be in safe hands.
