Hi Mate, I fish Salthouse when I can and I think that it fishes better at the low end or dusk, you will get a few trippers and twitchers at times but pretty safe. The car park is free at the moment, anywhere along that bit of shore carries a good shingle bar appx 40 to 60 yds out but can be a bit ab...

Salthouse report

Salthouse. Dug some worm bait and arrived at about 2pm tide was well down, some 12 other anglers there who had fished over the high tide. I set 2 rods and 2 hook trace with very small hooks. Slowly the other rods left the beach with only 2 others still fishing. No sign of crabs although bait was dis...

starfish stranded

Has anyone seen the internet news stranded starfish at Hunstanton? The report stated that thousands of starfish were stranded to die by receding tides, this happens now and then but I for one have never witnessed it. It may be as well to avoid fishing there for a while. Will

Echo what baldness said, I had a good day with good company I ended up with 6 pin whiting to throw back not as good as 6 to take home. I guessed that the fish would show a bit more at dusk. What makes a day like Sunday is the people one is with, the sharing, the banter, thank you all. The Norfolk me...

What size must they reached before commercialization took its toll? In the museum on the island outside Penzance St Michaels Mount there are lobsters mounted as wall hangings that are well over 3'' in length, they were caught locally, I must add that this was long ago. Will

I am not sure about the absolute rule regarding lobsters but it must be logged rigidly somewhere. What I have been studying is Haaf netting, similar to the shrimp net but longer it is also now illegal to use them without licence with the last usage under licence on the Solway Firth, they carry the l...

Depends where you are going in Bawdsey. If you fish the estuary at the seaward end it is very snaggy, the ferry area is good, on the school side there are toilets & fresh water, good parking but the tide roars through, fish at either side of the slack, this way you will hold ok. I have not fished on...

wobblywick

After a few poor trips I deciced to venture to areas not usually fished for a change. I travelled tp Walberswick yesterday [Wednesday] with some very fresh lug, sand eels, shrinps, 4 peelers & some stinky frozen lug. The day was warm with bright sunshine, with shallow water & bright conditions I was...

If my sand eels are frozen as they usually are then I use a baiting needle, passing it through the eel when frozen does not break it up as much, then as seaotter states use elastic to secure. I thread mine so that the finished eel is head first into the tide, whether this make a difference or not I ...

I used to use braid, but for me the complications with it cause me to change back to mono, this was many years ago when the spool strengths were poor. As you experienced the line can cut in deep on the spool, in addition line can overlap on the spool, this tends to happen if the line slackens at any...

If this new ruling is sanctioned the policing would most likely be hit & miss with the chance checks similar to the fresh water style of doing things. I suspect if a fisherman is caught without 'licence' or 'above 'the quota then an example would be given, a heavy fine media cover anything that publ...
