At the Southern end of Arran is Pladda. Excellent Pollack fishing around the 2 reefs and lighthose area if you can charter a boat. Plenty of rocky coastline for shore fishing.

Did you make the mistake of casting into the bait fish shoal? It is best to cast to the edge of the shoal as there is more chance of mackerel attacking the stragglers at the edges after they smack into them and stun them. If you cast to the middle of the baitfish shoal then everything is lost amongs...

Brighton

Hi all,

Can I have some info on beach and shore fishing within the Brighton area around September.

Having never fished the area I am seeking info from those that regularly fish the area.

All comments appreciated >:D<

A few mackerel were caught by the rod anglers but do you NOT see what I mean in comparison to the "netters". As soon as you say, "I seen" in this instance... All year long has a little RED "allegedly" Boat been sen trawling the area. Consider this!! "An average caster gives 75M from the shore. THEN ...

A more appropriate question may read, "Where can I fish as I am disabled".

That statement may produce more replies.

May I ask, without being intrusive as to the extent of your disability? Thereafter others may be able to assist with your answers?

Puddle.

Have you considered asking the local Boat Owners the same question> perhaps they are better qualified to answer your questions? On the 13th and 14th of november SSACN is holding a tagg...

Thanks Sportstar, I chose braid because I assumed that its much finer profile would enable me to use less lead with strong tides and also I would detect bites better, as well as having more 'feel' with the fish. However, after your comment, I will look into it a bit more. Cheers, Geoff :D :D :D Was...
