I disagree

I love reading his articles but many are badly out of date these days, particularly his description of some bass venues and what might be there. The entrance to the Fleet at Ferrybridge is a classic example. I think many of the bass are gone (in terms of numbers) and the venue has changed almost bey...

just add re shell bay

I read in the Echo on Weds that Poole Dolphins Angling Club had a match along shell bay a few evenings ago and only two fish were caught all evening. Mind you one was an 8lb ray :lol:

no I haven't

only from the pier - for mackerel. Had some fun picking them up (strangely) on silver blue Rapala X-Rap several weeks ago, very exciting as they were taking the lure close to the pier. Out of the green and then whack within a few feet. It was brilliant. other times I have been and used dexters and c...

shore angler

I can't really help much re. boat set-ups. I've just posted a list of Poole shore venues under a different thread today. Big bass (doubles) are rare from the shore but I know they get caught in Poole entrance because I've witnessed it, these are what the guys trolling the entrance in small boats are...

suggestion

If you're bottom fishing expect plenty of losses and use heavy snoods for the the big wrasse!

The Swanage tackle shp are the best for advice, they may advise floating unless you know the venue really well.

Agree on the tide, too much kelp on the ebb.

I posted similar in the spring

Favourite spots: 1. Poole Entrance (the Haven). Easy parking easy access to bass spinning on hotel side (or Shell Ba...

adelaide

bream are sometimes caught in the Cove and from other marks, as are other species such as trigger fish & bass during day fishing. I have no doubt about that but I have not been successful during the day myself so can't offer any direct advice on tactics, this is word of mouth. we're talking about a ...

trigger fish

The Adelaide is locally famous for trigger fish, especially this month and next. Yes it is not uncommon to catch bass on feathers, I've seen it before on Chesil, the biggest I've seen about 10lb. I wonder if they are attracted by the distressed macks that are hooked - I have heard stories of very la...

I've caught very little from several chesil day trips this summer fishing the fleet entrance, the cove, the landing craft or abbotsbury - other than mackerel on Dexter wedges. I'm told this is not unusual 'cause like most beaches Chesil fishes better late evening and o/n. Alternatively I might just ...

As far as I know diving. To a couple of feet. They are nice to cast and their superb shape means they are relatively easy to get out of weed. I found tackleuk.co.uk the cheapest, Harris have more choice but expensive.

shore knowledge

is my bag but I've seen plenty of bass caught in the shallows just to the west of the Brownsea Island landing from boats. Other than that trolling near the chain ferry in the Haven is always popular (legal for commercial of course, don't forget the bass nursery area from Jerrys Point to Salterns qua...

hello

I fish a lot in the area, at least this summer I have been, having moved to the beaches in April. I can give you some advice on marks, as can geejay. Funnily enough I have never fished the pier, despite growing up here. What's it like? There are courses for beginners and I believe Christchurch have ...

do you really need a lure?

Don't get me wrong, I use plenty and my preferred lure is the silver blue Rapala X-rap 'cause that has bagged me the most fish from marks around Poole entrance. However, these have been relatively small fish (up to 2-3 lb) that I have obviously returned. If you are fishing over rocks you would have ...
