Hi, I guess my suggestion maybe too late? I'll give it a shot anyways....

The sailors around here that suffer, all seem to swear by ginger nut biscuits! Maybe the 'key' is ginger? Or said biscuits have magical properties? Apparently a few, a couple of hours before keeps the stomach settled.

Hiya..... I had a couple of eels out of the Crouch yesterday, about an hour before HW and I was near the old Crane (Rice & Coles) Boatyard. Both were about 12"-18" long and about as thick as a broom handle. Hardly a spectacular catch, but a catch neverless. The day before I was sippin' a beer on the...

there is a house on way that sells bait tho not used it at Latchenden ... Froggys is in Latchingdon, just off the B1018 on the Steeple Road, approx 500mtrs on the right-hand side, you can't miss it as their are signs advertising live-bait outside. Same main road takes you to Bradwell via Mayland,St...

[quote=]Fished a few thames marks over the last month or so and can honestly say I have never known the fishing to be so poor[/quote] You should try fishing the Crouch then, I must be well into double figures the trips I've had with a "nil" score. Tried fishing the flood tide, ebb tide, bit of both,...

Cool yer jets dude! If this is how you treat other sea-fishers when they ask for some advice, then please don't bother responding to my post! (A) I ain't whinging! (B) Someone mentioned South Fambridge, which is totally in the opposite direction to where I choose to fish & on the oppsite side of the...

Let us know how you get on mate? Cheers macer Hiya, I was kinda looking towards you "seasoned" sea fishers for a bit of help/guidance. I've only been fishing for 13mths, and had a long lay-off over winter/spring. At the end of the day I ask everyone who claims to fish the Crouch for their views/tip...

I've often wondered about the Southside (Wallasea Island) of the Crouch, heard various bits of info from locals that it's meant to be good or at least better than the North (Burnham) side of the river. I purchased an Ordnance Survey map (explorer series) No: 176 which covers the area Southend to Mal...

Just a quick update from me.... I spent 5hrs (3 before + 2 after) HW on Saturday & Sunday, and blanked on both days! Same again on Wednesday too! I was up opposite the Roach on the Burnham side of the Crouch. I used Rag/Squid/Mackerel in various combinations. My tan is looking good, even if my freez...

Hiya, thanks for the responce. I should of mentioned that I live near Burnham on the North side of the Crouch. Whilst I was picking up some bait yesterday, matey was saying that he's had more luck on the Blackwater, near Steeple, I'll maybe give that ago next week, but for now I want to ease my way ...

River Crouch...

Hi Everyone, My question is, what's about in the Crouch at the moment, any particular hot-spots & what bait is everyone using? It'll be my 1st trip out in 8mths!!! (I know shame on me) but I've got a weekend pass from her indoors and I'm going to take full advantage of it :D Thanks in advance for an...
