Fished West Arm this morning 6 am - 9.30am. Cold N/E wind.

Managed to christen the new reel with this 2lb Brill ( Am sure that is what it is but have never seen one off Shoreham before.)


Rig was 1 hook flapper and caught on small strip of mackeral.. Had nowt else ..

Hook came out clean so back it went as it promised to return in June..

More importantly no birdies or crack-offs, Thank Mesito for your advice.

PS where the hell were you. Mate,?? No one else there until 8.30am , am I using the wrong soap,??

Nice fish, it's always nice to get something completely unexpected. I caught a brill from Newhaven East arm about 5 years ago, only one I've ever seen.
Thanks Tiper

Must admit was the last fish I expected to see come over the wall..

Seriously well done! - been a long time since I've seen a turbot on the wall, in fact over 20 years.
