I should have known better and stayed at home. Having decided on an evening session at Seaford beach, all the signs for decent fishing were absent. Slight breeze from the NE, small tide, clear sky, flat calm and clear sea with no movement. However, always the optimist, I set up opposite Edinburgh Road at about 6.30pm. I had earlier obtained some quality large and lively King Rag worm and Peeler crab from the tackle box at Brighton Marina.

One set up consisted of running ledger baited with Peeler on size 1/0 hook. The other was 2 hook flapper baited with worm on size 1 hooks.

In the next two hours, the only thing that happened was a bloke brought his kids, plus a dog and decided to let them go swimming about 20 yards away. This bloody beach is miles long, so why decide to have their enjoyment near me? Did I look like I wanted company?

High water came and went without a single bite. And that's pretty much how it stayed until I left at about 12.30am.

Did manage to get a couple of pics of the sunset though.

I was just about to ask if anyone's fished Seaford this week as I thinking about it tonight. Maybe I'll give it a miss.

And you're not the only one blanking Vic. I fished the Adur last night and had zero bites in a spot where I had very hectic flounder action just 4 days ago.

The water in Seaford Bay is very clear and has been for some time,a good blow from the South West is what is needed to liven things up,a few Mackeral are starting to show but not a lot else.
