Hi zedone and Mickey.

Are there any decent campsites near W/haven as I am off next week and your posts have got me interested.
Doesnt have to be fancy. I had planned to do nowt next week but Mrs Terry has given the green light for a few days away so I might as well put them to good use.
Any info. at all will be appreciated,
Cheers lads,
Terry F. :)

hello terry, the campsite at st bees is right on the beach and its sound as apound,you can fish high water from your tent virtually,or walk on to the head for low water fishin ,plenty to go at on there and probly the best option zed could tell you more about summer fishin off there or daz he fishes it a fair bit, i only fish it winter up to now always fish with rotten bottoms as the leads get stuck in the rocks a lot, plenty of species to go at tho. i like the winter off there meself but its a crackin place 2 b, best fished off the head a couple of hours down 2 low then a couple up then you need 2 b gerrin off, im sure daz or zed will advise you better good luck anyway terry.................mick

hi terry
mick has pretty much coverd everything
bait can be baught in 2 spots in w/haven jacksons boat yard and cumbria anglers
you will pay £3:80 for 10 black worm !!
you can dig blow from most beaches and sand eel are abundant at low water
mackrel are showing on w/haven pier now
north ( little) i would go for
can get more off of west (big pier) but long way up with full trace lol
baged 80 + on friday myself sparkley traces make the diffrence coverd in sheeeite i was
so, fish bait you can get for nowt
try sea mill of a night worth a shot
braystones is worth a shot too but as micky will tell yeh its a bit hit an miss at the minut
