Shoreham seems to have got progressively worse over the last 5 years, so I would fish east arm of the Marina, on low tide try using up to one ounce of lead like a ball weight on the mainline, with a rubber bead then a swivel. Then use a size 2 hook with a single rag or lug on a 2ft trace. just hit t...

Never had much luck with the slipper limpet on the Brighton coast as they dont seem to be native to that area. Move along the coast to Normans bay tho and you gotta dead cert!

Carp rods can be used to great effect if used in the right way. I sometimes use my Shakespeare ugly stick 3.25lb test alongside my beach rods like the century c3 or K2 team extreme. Carp rods can be used boat or beach and a friend of mine regularly uses the same rod as me on the boat off Alderney to...

Not fished Selsy myself so I'm not sure what you get down there but I know a few people who get some decent catches down that way. Brighton Marina can be good but you need to be there on a night time high tide for best chances, usual 2 hours either side. Bait wise Rag and Peeler, lures I havent fish...

West Arm is great for bass on the float or lures recent catches up to ten pound from what ive heard. Fish the bottom on the west and youre like to lose rigs so rotton bottoms needed. Or fish any tactic you like off the east arm and you can catch a good variety of species

You have lots of options, depends what you are fishing for. You can use any standard beach rig really. I find clipped down rigs safer as you dont have flappy traces to catch up on if you have limited casting space. Boom rigs can also work well as they help prevent tangles in this situation or you ca...

Ive been using a Ron Thompson for 3 years now and have even lived in it for two ten day sessions in the summer on Chesil and a few weekend sessions at Dungy and Normans Bay, so they are a good size, stable and weather proof. Even stood up to force 9 cyclonic winds at ferrybridge which we fished thro...

The best thing about Lazy Lug/Rag is its preserved in Ethanol so you get high when you use it. However the bait itself is rubbish. As a last resort when Bait is short get some mackeral and prawns or fresh seafood mix from the fish counter at your local supermarket.

There was a review on these in Sea angler a few months back makes a great light to have in your shelter for baiting up and sorting your tackle out and should be bright enough to illuminate the rod tips too.

mackeral, mashed up with a bit of bread, maybe add some fish oil and herring pellets. Mesh bags pegged down on the low tide mark can work but you gotta be able to cast to it consistantly!Or use a swim feeder, theres a couple of other topics on here along this line, have a look at the spodding topic.

Seaford for whiting, dabs and maybe the odd bass and codling if your lucky. Lug tipped with squid, mackeral and shellfish all working well there.
