Hi have been catching plenty of Mackerel in Rye Bay from the boat but there has also been loads off the shore at Winchelsea beach within casting distance (especially when the seas flat and its high tide n sunny). Rob.

Theres been loads in Rye bay lately, especially when theres a high tide and the suns out and the seas flat. The birds have been going crazy and the white bait have been "beaching" themselves to get away! I think Rye bay is around 20 miles along the coast from Newhaven tho. Rob.

I agree with "Steveseagull" congrats to your pal but he done the right thing keeping quiet about the location. As fisherman its nice to sometimes look for new spots /places/venues for ourselves, its all part of the game! If you find a decent new venue, just take a few nearest n dearest fishing there...

Hi i use fresh Black Lug that i pump myself whilst fishing.

If you cant pump your own, try to get Fresh Lug (un frozen) as its a natural food source for Bass when the surfs up, as some lug naturally get washed out the sand as the waves pound down.
Good luck Rob.

Maxi-Flex Sand Eels

Hi all. Has anybody else tried the "maxi flex" sand Eels? I have used them on the wrecks twice recently and they out-fished Redgills/Jellies etc by a long way. They are pricey but they seem to work very well. Has anybody else had any expierience with them? Cheers Rob.

Hi, Down in Rye Bay/Winchelsea from the beach we are getting Plaice, Eels, Bass and a few Mackerel as well as still getting the odd Codling but due to the NE winds we seem to be having lately the beach fishing is more "hit n miss" than usual with most fish staying offshore. Boat fishing has been goo...

Mackerel!!!!!

Hi all, not long now before the mackerel return, along with larger numbers of Bass and the under-rated Garfish, who always put up a good scrap on light tackle. Bring on the summer fishing!!!!!!!!!

I know they usually turn up in May but has anybody had any early Mackerel yet? Thanks Rob.

Hi Whitey, thats a loaded question as there are so many species and venues to fish from in a boat. Then add seasonal migrations etc into the mix and it is hard to generalise!!!!. I find the ground fishing goes a bit quieter this time of year as the Cod run has all but ended, but the Wrecks etc can s...
