Walmer - 17 Oct 2016

After a lengthy break and a cardiac arrest thought I should once again start boring people here with a few posts. Fished Walmer (opposite the castle) yesterday from 10.30 am to 2.30 pm (2 hours before and after high tide). Nothing until high tide except tons of weed, even when fishing close in. As s...

Dungeness - Are there any fish left in the sea?

Fished Dungeness today for 2 hours before and 2 hours after high tide. Result: 1 feeble little Whiting. I was lucky though I think because of all the people there (I could see 20 plus rods) I and the chap next to me were the only one who caught anything (he had 1 feeble Whiting as well and was there...

Walmer 20/3/14

Sorry this is a bit late but......... fished Walmer 20/3/14 for 2 hours either side of high tide. Had 12 dogfish, 5 small pouting, 3 small whiting and a small codling. Used squid and mackerel fillet. Water was coloured but the sun was shining. Just wish I could catch something of a decent size! :-/

Sandwich Bay 18/1/2014

Fished Sandwich Bay yesterday (the Royal Golf Club). Loads of little pin Whiting and one small codling (less than 30cm but my first in over 3 years) in 3 hours using squid and mackrel. The breeze blew and the sun shone - a relaxing 3 hours. Dengemarsh next I think. If the have stopped ploughing up t...

Jury's Gap is at the far end of Lydd Ranges - the end nearer to Rye - and it literally where the range fencing stops. You will see some cottages there and a range hut. There is also a small works yard with a parking area in front of it. Parking is free.

Where is RRD by the way?

Regards

Jury's Gap 19/11/13

Fished Jury's Gap 10.30 am to 2.00 pm. Slow start with just a couple of Dabs but picked up after high tide (11.30) with 10 Whiting (3 or 4 were of keeping size but went back) and a reasonable Dogfish. Used squid and mackerel at about 100ms range. The sun was shining but there was plenty of colour in...

I have to say, after what can only be called a dire summer, I count any fish a success. There are times this summer when I began to question whether it was worth carrying on!

Walmer 5 Nov

Fished Walmer beach 10.30 to 14.00. There was a fair swell on and a lot of colour in the water; I used squid and Mackerel. I caught on almost every cast with a tally of 6 small dogfish and 20 plus Whiting of which about 4 were of keepable size. All went back though. It's the biggest tally I have had...

Walmer 11/6

Thought it was time to put a little something on here to see if it will encourage others to do the same. So here goes........ Fished Walmer 11/6, 1 hour before high tide to 2 hours after high tide. Used squid and mackerel. Results were 11 doggies, 1 reasonable pouting and a 7.5 lbs thornback, my bes...

Noss Mayo/Holbeton

Greetings all!

I'm visiting the Yealm/Erme area for 4 days next week and would appreciate a little advice on the fishing there. Is it good? How should I fish (spin, float etc.)? What are the best baits?

Any advice would be most welcome.

Cheers

Andrew

Dengemarsh 30/1/12

Spent 5 hours at Dengemarsh on 30th Jan, 2.5 hours either side of high tide. Used lug, squid and mackeral casting long and short............... Not a thing was caught - not a bite seen. Am I missing a trick here? I don't claim to be the world's finest angler but have never blanked at Dengemarsh befo...

I'm assuming that you will be at Kingsdown near Walmer/Deal. You are likely to get plenty of Whiting, a few Doggies and the odd flattie. There seem to be few cod around at the moment. I use 2 and 3 hook rigs with squid and mackrel or both. People also use lug but I have to say that I've not found th...

Walmer 30 Oct

Fished Walmer Sunday 30/10 from 11.30 am to 3.30 pm. Mackrel & Squid used on 2 and 3 hood rig. Sea was pretty flat and clear for the time of year so things were slow. Final tally - 2 Whiting (one reasonable), 1 smallish Doggie and one surprise Red Gurnard (never had one of those before!). I think we...

Geoff

Used a bomber rig with a 3/0 hook. The bait was mackrel and I drove a skoda scout there (a 4x4 estate with a raised suspension) but it would have been p[ossible in a car.

I smile everytime I think about the fish - pathetic I know - it's my best fish since taking up beach fishing 2 years ago.
