Hi all,

The missus and me :clap2:, are going to set off for our first sea fishing trip of the year together, and wondering where is good at the moment, we were talking about Dungie as a possible at the moment...

Any suggestions?

Also, for Dungie what weights would you use?

And Tide times?

Well the three rods we will be taking are

Abu SX, RX and for Mrs her Stigma, and possibly her Enticer (oo er)

With those, 4-6 oz not a problem, if it does get that Windy, then there is always the Prince of Wales as it is sheltered.

Gemini's added to the shopping list :D

Just finished de-lining the multipliers and oiled ready for the first trip of the year, and cleaned the boxes out, seemed to have made good friends with the cat, wonder what he wants...:g:

the wind won't be a problem tomorrow but the lack of fish at dungie will be especially if your day fishing.i'd try the prince of wales or even better get out on the breakwater.a mate of mine had a few on there today.....dave.:)

Will bear that in mind, so far we have fished the following last year in Kent

Deal Pier
Prince of Wales
Admiralty
Reculver
Sun Pier in good ole Chatham :D
Kingdown
Dover Breakwater

So any other suggestions in the county greatfully appreciated, we normally end up at the Prince of Wales, and this has nothing to do with the cafe (and I refute calims that sales go up when I am there of bacon sarnies lol)

For fishing Dungie use 6oz long tailed breakaways, these have far superior holding power.
Cast well uptide, put the rod in the rest and let out enough line so that in points straight out to sea or even a little down tide. Let the pull of the tide tighten the line, if it starts to point up tide or pull really hard then let a little more line go.
I live near and work at Dungie and have fished it for about 20 years, I never need to use more than 6 oz breakaways.

See the forum below for what has been caught at Dungie in the last couple of days.

???????? Loads of fish at Dungie at the moment. Small Dabs and Whiting but sure to out fish other local beaches.

I agree better stamp of fish maybe available on the Breakwater but if beach fishing is your thing then Dungie is fishing OK

Might also like to try Minnis for them Rays

I use 6oz soft fixed wired impact leads at Dungie. Great for holding and will pull out the line snags better.

I agree that if you fish it correctly a 6oz breakout will hold at on most tides.

Minnis is producing well at the moment and is without a doubt the place for thornbacks in kent.
