If you are hanging for some mackies, get down the beaches at first light in the next few days. Watched the weed creep out to France last night, and at first light mackies and scad all along the Brigthon beaches. No bass for the third night running though..... :( Seas crystal, and with the wind set to stay in the North until at least Monday night, any fluff chuckers amongst you will find perfect conditions for fluff chucking fun on the open beaches for mackerel scad and bass first and last light the next few days.

Been brutally dissapointing for me also the last three nights. What a change today though. One encouraging sign was mackerel leaping for their lives at about 100 yards today. The mackerel and scad dont stop feeding just cos its got dark.

Thanks Rob, I've actually rather missed the mackerel this non-summer, so thanks for the heads-up.

You say last light might be good - will that still be true at low tide this sundown?

Last light will get better in about two days time. First light is the one to aim for for the next couple of days, and thats when you see Brighton at its best. IE No people!!

just got back from shoreham arm and there were hundreds of mackerel swimming around breaking the water on the outside. Just would not take to feathers! With in minutes of the sun setting they had gone. The northeast wind was really starting to pick up and left at 9 with out a single bite.

Unlucky, but not an uncommon situation. Some days the only way to get them interested is on a superbly presented mackerel strip. Other days you could fit a hook to your aunties dentures and catch them....!!
Always a good idea to try ultra small feathers in crystal clear water. My favourites cos they seem to find the few sandeel I have feathered around here this year as well, are the TRONIX tiny white ones. Cant remember what they are called. I think its something like micro rig.

Saw a very good shoal between the West arm of the marina and the black rock when I strolled downt to Asda's earlier. Plus a Yak setting up to raid them. Was that you Bruno??
