I lived in Woolwich Dockyard, south of the river, until about 10 years ago and remember a young girl catching a decent size bass on raw chicken breast when fishing with her Dad. I didn't see that but did see about 60 blokes out blanking with packs of chicken breast the next weekend. I don't think th...

but it takes 5kg of fish to make fishmeal to convert to 1kg of salmon grown in a fish farm. Didn't get to see the documentary but that's the bit that's really frightening. I believe that this fishmeal typically comes from countries where 100,000s of tons of illegally caught fish is processed into t...

http://www.barbel.co.uk/site/articles/t ... curves.htm should give you a good idea. Think of the Bass rod as a bigger version of the match rod and carprod as the avon.

She could probably handle a bass or flattie rod without problem. Whilst pike/carp rods are ok for casting a few ounces (my boys used 3.25lb 12ft pike rod when they first went beach fishing at about the same age) they wobble too much, so little change of bite detection, and you will struggle if you g...

Fished Ilfracombe when on holiday a couple of years ago. The harbour was too busy with boats and many people fishing in the daytime, though I did have a couple of flatties out of the inside harbour.

After dark there were plenty of fish about, both close in and out towards sea. Take a good lamp!

Boat Reel?

Could I get away with using my ABU 6500 Mag for wreck/drift fishing? I'm more worried about reeling an 8oz lead up and down all day long, rather than the prospect of catching anything, (I'll leave that to my wife and kids). Don't want to bugger it up for the beach!

Or try a baited drop or crayfish style net (cheap off E-Bay) if you are near a pier/harbour. Dead easy and gets a wide variety of creatures including prawns.

I like Gamakatsu Aberdeens, Aberdeen Wide Gape for chunky baits. Size 1/0 or 1 will do for most purposes.

This question has been on the forum before, I believe that the response then was that WD40 contained fish oil and could be used as an attactant many moons ago, but no longer does.
