Not heard of that before- in order for it to work though you'd have to be able to throw as far as you can cast- but if you're fishing close in you could try throwing a ball of bacon fat, that'll keep them busy- crabs love bacon fat- plus the rind looks like white rag. You mean like ground baiting t...

A tip from John Holden is to wrap a plaster around your index finger to stop the line cutting you, but I think I will get myself a cannon. My finger still gets sore with a plaster and it sometimes gets in the way when tying knots etc.

Sorry Weedy but I need to tell you that unless something exceptional happens there is little point in coming after Christmas. We then enter what I call the dead zone when inshore waters are just too cold to encourage much fishy activity. We usually start again in late February/March when the plaice...

Cheers everybody, I enjoyed fishing your area and will do so again when I'm next back down, probably just after Christmas.

Hayling Island catch repor :D

Being a novice I asked for advice in the tackle shop on station road while I was getting my bait. I was advised to fish the section of Eastcote beach behind Southwood road, the further east the better but not all the way to the point. I was also advised to fish at just 20 to 30 yards for decent Bas...
