Last year I found these two hooks particularly effective (from the boat). I often fished them with a very small muppet above it (got them from weymouth angling). Hook size either 4 or 6, with a 5cm strip of squid above. Did try aberdeens, but found they sometimes bent. Mustad Red Baitholder 92668N M...

Don't know who would be best for flattie fishing. Been out a few times with Dave Pitman Breamfishing - haven't failed yet. This year tiny muppets above the hooks seemed to be the buisiness.

Depends what you want to do. If you fancy a general trip Dave Pitman (Atlanta) is good, the two you mentioned are also good.

Small pic, so a little hard to see. Probably a common blenny. Also heard of it being called a sticky finger fish as they will attach themselves (by biting) to your finger (doesn't really hurt).

Give it a go. In some ways the winter could be better than the summer. An inshore/general reefing trip could be a good start as not so much time is spent steaming. In terms of clothing warm clothes and waterproofs are fine. Footwear should be non-slip, have fun.

Agree with Rabbi, you should put on rubbing leader of mono as braid is vulnerable to waer and tear. 30lb braid is a good general purpose line. 20lb would be ok for bass and mackeral. If going for bigger stuff and wrecking I would scale everything up to the 50lb mark.

I am certainly no expert on the area, depends what you want to do I suppose. Hopes Nose is worth a go, but can be a trek. The piers are worth a go.

Have a look at deepsea - http://www.deepsea.co.uk/ports/ports.htm - I've been out on a few and on their day most can be good. Depends on what you want to do really.

Another one for you - Actually got to go out today. Only second day this year. Took out some special needs students to do some end of term mackeral fishing, they all caught. But I managed to catch a twaite shad, never seen one before.

When boatfishing the reasonfor using a length of mono at the end is to protect against abrasion - would this not be needed if beachcasting? - the only stuff I really do off the beach is spinning or plugging so I tend to use braid straight through

Could be the braid cutting the nylon. Try moistening the nylon when tightening the knot, like fly fishers do, to stop friction generating heat. I use the Sebile knot which reduces bulk of knot, mind you I've not tried it for beach casting as it's not really my bag. Instructions - http://videos.sport...

Pirates lines are great - especially for the price. I use them for freshwater fly-fishing. He is planning a saltwater range soon. Not yet ventured to fly fishing in the sea yet, slowly gathering the tackle: rod, waders, a reel and line - so nearly there. Summer - Hopefully.
