I work at Custom House and often see lads spinning and using lures for the bass in the docks - The one by Excel. Last year I saw a fella with one lure caught bass around 10lbs.

Hello Timmus,
Its not been good on the thornie side of things this year. I've been 3 times in May and june using blueys and not a thing. I haven't met anyone who has caught one this year. Whiting and pout and schoolie bass showing from most points. Mullet also around.
Good luck
:)

Thanks fella's. I just came back from Aldbrough fishing. I tried a couple of jackets on in Saxmundham Tackle. IMAX XXL gave me the right arm length but I think there was room for another person. I'll try the Romford Brewery thanks.
I must get one I came back soaked and frozen today.

We went about a week and half ago from the beech. We found piles of dead crabs washed up. We also found our bait coming in untouched. However I snapped up just before high tide and about a couple of ours later my mate caught the end of my broken line. I untangled it and managed to retieve my line le...

There's a lot of anticipation out there at the moment waiting for the word cod. On the East coast some small ones showing strangely in the shallower parts.

Walton Saturday

Fished Walton near the tower Saturday afternoon tide. Quite calm when we arrived but a strong wind was blowing when we left around 8pm. We fished lug and squid. No bites on the up coming tide but at high water and down we started to get bites, but we also started to get weed and by the end we were r...

Fishing at Fambridge is hard. We usually try the Island where you can still catch the herring on small feathers although it is extremely sporadic. I agree with you about the rubbish, although I reckon a lot of it get blown up from elsewhere. Holywell point has been reasonable this year although the ...

Sorry to hear your plight. I normally find Bradwell to be pretty clean. Do you fish there much in winter and if so have you had any luck. I've been trying round at Holiwell point which has been busy with lots of whiting and the odd codling.

Nice one. The drivers always lose! I fished the week before and was easily beating both my mates until the cod arrived. Both of them kept catching codling up to 4lb while I was stuck with the tremendous whiting. Still at least I didn't have to gut any fish at 4 in the morning.

Welcome.
You can catch herring from Southend Pier and around the River Crouch which is nearby. However they tend mostly to be around December and January. I don't know where they go after that.
