The sun's been out for a week or so and I'm already thinking about mullet, mackerel, gars and bass. Itching to get out the floats and spinners. I know there's been a few bass taken pretty much all winter but what about the others? Any catches or sightings? I'm in Shoreham and look optimistically in the river everytime I cross the Adur footbridge but the water's still a bit murky so who knows if there's any grey ghosts making their way in yet.

Fished on the boat on the Middle Grounds at Selsey today. Saw dolphins on the way there. Caught one common smoothound on squid at 7lb, two bass at 3 and 6lb, six plaice (four of which were over 2lb) and a 17lb blonde ray.

Looks like summer is here BUT they are forecasting heavy snow for this region on sunday/monday - what is going on!!

He he, glad to see I'm not the only one who gets over optimistic at the first sign of spring. Every year I go mulleting too early, blank then try to remind myself not to get my hopes up until late May. This year really seems different though, sea temp (according to http://www.shorehamweather.info/boarders.html ) is already 9.4 degrees. My suspicion is the water never got as cold over winter as previously so will be warmer earlier; any ideas?
