we fished deal mid November during the day and had 5 codling to 3lb, 8 good doggies and countless whiting.
The thames and medway are alive with codling and whiting at the moment too.

so basically because you have a problem with jetskiers you expect them to ride miles offshore. They were designed to be raced and to be had fun on!. And isn't it down to the harbour board etc to police the harbours for riders doing excessive speed or riding dangerously to deal with it? And kite surf...

Not being funny but windsurfers and jetskiers and anyone else for that matter have just as much right to use the beach and seas just as much as us anglers do. They probably moan about fisherman as well having to dodge our lines in the water. Its not like they scare fish away is it!!! We don't own th...

these look very interesting, I defo think they could work as ground baiters. maybe stuff them with fish bait and freeze them so the juices slowly release as they thaw in the water.

i thought barbed hooks went out with the dinosaurs!
personally i always use barbless hooks for easy removal and by hooking the worm over the eye and knot they stay on easier and dont slip down the hook lengh.
