Never again..................

Fished Walton peir on wednesday what a complete waste of time and effort. I think its gonna take some convincing me to go back any time soon. All i had all day was 1 small pouting. I didnt think the peir had any snags around it but i lost a fair amount of tackle it was getting as bad as clacton peir...

I would suggest getting a T bar. They are very effective at getting hooks out without loads off tugging and pulling. You should be able to pick one up new for about five quid. As regards cutting off the hook and leaving it in the fish this has been disscussed sometime ago in a fishing mag and at the...

looks a great way to fish and good to see such a variety of species caught :) how easy is it to get set up for kayak fishing? Any advice for someone who knows nothing? Hi stillsy, as mickmull has said look at the anglers afloat site. If you do want to get afloat choose your craft carefully. I have ...

Hi macer,
if you do manage to get out make sure you bring some Bluey with you, seems to be the best bait for the skate at the moment.

Went south...........

Had a day out yesterday, went out from the river crouch and headed south. Had a good day apart from the rocking and rolling due to the wind. Had plenty of fish all day mainly yting. Had some good keepers for the dinner table. 3 skate came aboard but slightly undersize so all went back and one doggie...

I think you will find southend is near dead at the moment. I was fishing opposite clacton peir to day on a boat and had a right result. I kept 6 sizeable coddling, we had about a dozen or so between us plus all the whiting. Try Clacton or if you can have ago at Deal. The codling that were caught was...

Fantastic sight

I went for a paddle on the thames yesterday and was suitably impessed with what i saw. I started heading towards the pier just as the tide started to come in, the water was like a sheet of glass. In front of me and around me there was plenty off fish swimming about. Ruddy typical i decided to leave ...

That is one reason why i didn''t go out on mine, wasn't feeling to good saturday so had no chance getting up that early today. I did see you paddling back this morning as i was down on my bike. I was on the s...

Weather is a ruddy nitemare at the moment. :(( . I haven't been out on my yak since my last post. I think the only people that are gaining from all this wind is the kite surfers and windsurfers. I've been out on my mates boat once or twice, but even that has been hard work and not over productive be...

Mickmull have you had the chance to go out fishing yet on your yak. I've been out on mine a couple of times but only for some exercise. Went out today for a while. Not nice having that wind blowing and as soon as that cloud came over the temp dropped like a sack off bricks. Gagging to go fishing of ...

Gotta invest in a dry suit. Have you thought about going down to old leigh near the marshes. I have seen plenty of fish there w...
