Nice one, that sounds like a busy session.

Can you recomend a rod thats not a porky pig, I was tracking one on flyby but the auction has gone above my budget which is £50.

Cheers
Richard

Excellent session, well done. :clap2:

Were you float or feeder fishing?

any thicklips about,i have a passion for the bigger fish?
In the ouse around and above Lewes most of the mullet are thins, if you want thicks you really need to be a bit nearer the sea Craig.

Out of interest, from Lewes town centre up stream, fishing is by permit and the permit required depends on which bank and stetch you wish to fish. These banks are baliffed from time to time. From the area below the tunnel is free as far as I know.

In addition if an EA officer appears whilst your fishing in the area you may have difficulty convincing them that you are fishing for sea and not freshwater fish especially if your using match gear so it would help if you have a rod licence.

I suggest to avoid any hassle anyone wanting to fish the ouse around Lewes checks the exact details in Percy's, the tackle shop in Cliff Hight Street, Lewes.

Fishing can be exceptional, but a little muddy! Also beware on spring tides as the current can rip through.

Hi please can you show me or supply a link so i can see what i spinning mep is.
I did look first but only found cartoons ?
Do a search on this forum for thin lips or Mepps and you should get a couple of pics up showing a couple of different spinner types from this years posts.

Lovely session MrP + friend :1a:, I haven't got around to the Thin lips yet but I'll be going for a stroll on Sunday having a look for some after your session.

My choice for the area you fished is a 1.25lb test curve avon rod with a nice through action.
would that be enough to convince the chap from the EA that you
was'nt freshwater fishing then?...:doh:

Lol, I don't need to convince him as I have a rod license, and i buy permits to fish the Ouse above the Cliff High Street road bridge.

I have fished the area for over 40 years as you found the fishing is excellent, and there are also shoals of quality bream and roach, large carp and chub along with the mullet which is why I purchase a rod license.

i was just a bit confused when you said about useing a match rod,it may be
difficult convinsing the chap from the EA that you were not freshwater
fishing!!!
and then saying you would use a avon rod..lol...:giveup:
