Hi Brummie and welcome to Plymouth. We all have to learn and I'm sure even the most experienced will admit they still are!! My good lady and I are both keen anglers and venture out to quite a few of the marks in the Plymouth area and beyond, furthest we've ventured so far is Chesil which is about 10...

I am not sure what the fish is called but they are abundant in rock pools. They look nasty but the worse thing they can do is gum you to death! Their mouths, although big relative to their size is design to crust small shrimplike creatures. They also breathe out of water for a long time! Caught quit...

True, true.

When you come down to play Plymouth bring your rods!

Lots of good places round here and happy to go Congering with you. Might even try to beat my personal best of 1lb 4 oz lol

You might change your mind when you find out I'm a Brighton supporter born and bred but live in Plymouth.

Hi and welcome to forums.

Hopes Nose in Torquay, left hand side (Charlottes Bay) is very good

Also try SToke Point near Noss Mayo.

Sorry to hear about your team today. Unfair to dock the points and doom you to definate relegation.

Rather than dismiss these conservation zones as worthless or assuming sea fishing won't get a look in, we should make sure our views are put forward at whatever forums are available. Clearly commercial fishing will have a much greater impact than angling, but that doesn't mean to say angling has no...

What a waste of time! Finding Sanctuary? Christ, you couldn't find you way back to this website for over 8 weeks! You say you post on over a 100 websites, how hard could it be to go to each one and see any comments left for you? I dont mean daily, but once a week would mean visiting 20 a day, hardly...

Hi mate, Not sure if this will help too much however I fish that area on a regular basis and it is reasonably sheltered from everything but a southerly wind. Waves are normally just a swell opposed to crashing breakers and leads hold ground very well. This would seem to indicate that tidal pull is e...

Thurlestone Sands

Hi all, has anyone fished this beach recently?

It is a bit out of the way but thought I might give it a go this weekend. Any tips of likely catches, bait etc.

Many thanks

We had a variety of bait, mackie, squid, rag, lug and even a few peelers. We used 3 hook flappers, pully pennels and some flattie rigs with various hook s...

Hi mate, Torquay is spoilt for good areas to fish. The best by far is Hopes Nose which is to the East. If you are driving then get a local map and head for Charlotte Road. You can park easily with no restrictions. There is a coastal path leading down to Hopes Nose. I must add it is about a 20 min wa...

Hi, Kingsbridge Estuary has been producing the fine Flounder at the moment. A competition last weekend produced many fish in the 3lb - 3 1/2 lb.

The further down the estuary the better.

As many people as possible need to get along to these meetings and air their views. Whether our opinions will be heard and/or listened to is another matter. Whilst I accept that protection zones may be needed along the same lines as we already have Conservation areas for other native wild-life I don...
