Fished Witches today on the point with K.O.L from 07:30-14:30. Baits used were macky, sandeel, squid and rag.

First cast KOL managed a pouting, I had a pin whiting. Second cast I pulled in another whiting then all went quiet for an hour or so. Pulled in a tiny black fish, think it may by a goby or a blenny, anyone??? I then chucked out a whole large squid sprayed with prawn spray, and had a lovely bite on it and reeled in a greedy turbot of just over 1lb.

All was quiet for quite a while, and then as the tide turned I pulled in what we thought was a whiting, but on closer inspection looked more like a pollock, due to the mouth pointing up and small black spots on the back, a little to light than other pollock I've seen. What does everyone else think, I.D would be appreciated.

I managed 5 in total and KOL just the pouting. Possible three new species ofr the list for me. Used my brand new Carbon Metal with new 525 Supermag extra, both were a dream to fish with. £350 well spent.

I've only ever fished the point before, and in an effort not to climb the hill on the way back we went around and saw quite a few anglers fishing the ledges further around. Has anyone ever fished these before, if so what are they like, similar to the point? Clean ground or not???? Will probably give them a bash tomorrow.

Answers to all my questions posed would be appreciated!!!

I prefer the ledges to the left to the point. There's rough ground for about 20-30yds or so then clean sand. In fact, the further you go round, the less rough there is. I find that most of my fish are caught here at short range - 50-60yds or less. I've had a lot of rays from there including my biggest small eyed of 12lb 10oz and a spotty of 5lb 4oz. How was the swell today? It was pretty big last night.

nice days fishing there, the ledges around the corner, cast out over sand, bit more comfortable, same type of fishing maybe a better chance of bass.
i often walk another mile or so to the first outcrop, fish the first of the flood, had some nice bass, top water, cook them on superheated pebbles, and you can get that all over tan, if you know what i mean.:secret:
