Hello all, hope you can help.

Heard some bad reports about the fishing out of Weymouth at the moment. I'm due out on a charter next week and wanted to hear some more opinions. Any information that you can offer would be greatly received. Thanks.

Thanks guys.

The idea was to go for flatties on the sandbanks but apparently water clarity is poor and it's really effecting the fishing. Anyone been or have some good second-hand information re plaice and turbot?

I fished The Shambles all day on Saturday. Conditions were not good but we persevered. We also fished the mussel beds for plaice over slack water. Not a sniff of a turbot, brill or plaice. Just one dogfish and a few launce and herring. A far cry from two seasons ago. I have 2 more trips booked, so I hope it gets better. I agree that lots of rays are coming from the offshore banks if you can get out over a neap tide. Good luck.

Thanks for all your help lads. All good stuff.

Skipper seems confident and I have since seen some reports of plaice coming out. We'll see.

I'll make sure to post a short report on this thread this time next week.

In fact, there is something that you all might be able to help with.

What is the best tactic for plaice in this part of the world. Coloured beads, hook sizes, bait/bait combinations etc? Anything that might be able to help!
