My Pal Kieran and I fished the channel today 3hrs up to high. I was the first to strike with a double shot of codling both under size biggest maybe 12oz or so and one half the size. Not long after Kieran banked one under size again. and I had the final fish of the session with another small codling last cast. we were by the Diesel tanks on Barrow Island. A few other rods were about. Don't know how they fared. We were hoping for a plaice or 2 but Sadly they never showed. Still a good day and we were lucky with the rain staying fairly dry. Bait was mussel and fresh blow with both baits accounting for 2 fish each. Crabs were not really a problem today which was a nice change!! A good day had by all all fish swam away unharmed.

Thanks Guys. hopefully the bigger codling will move in when the crabs start busting their shells em mass. Looking forward to what looks like a good season ahead. lets be having em. Im Gavin by the way. nice talking to you all. Been Lure fishing for pike up till now this year but the focus is back on the salty stuff now. Let the pike spawn and fatten up a bit again!

Sounds like a good little session, where's the gas tanks over barrow island? I went on a scouting Mission the other day down the deep water birth and found out it's all blocked off now. I spoke to a jumped up security guard, 'I asked if there's anywhere down here where you can still fish legally?" He said " for a start your on on private property!" Enough said. Does anyone fish from channel side walk way to the right of the dock museum?

the first accessible bit as you get to the end of michaelson road past the flats. theres wasteland to the left and a little layby and to the right you can see the channel. the diesel tanks are to the right as you look at the channel.you cant miss em. id imagine they would be easy to spot on google maps. any bigger than an 8m tide is too big to fish there. the channels full of good marks. have a walk down at low and you might find your own gem of a mark

Theres plenty of good spots along that stretch. just dont try fishing it on a big tide unless you fancy paddling/swimming back. can be a dangerous spot if you get caught out. better safe than sorry
