I`ve seen reports of Ray`s bream being caught on rod & line from North Wales coast, normally good sized fish 4-8lb.

They certainly look like they would put a good bend in the rod.
Nice fish dog you`ve got there tina , whats it like at digging worms. :)

It`s a Ray`s bream. There seem to be more getting washed up every year. They do NOT like cold weather. http://www.google.co.uk/imgres?imgurl=http://www.glaucus.org.uk/Ray%27sBream1099-MM.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.glaucus.org.uk/Bramabrama.htm&h=527&w=814&sz=133&tbnid=9c18j9Bf8cep2M:&tbnh=93&tbnw=144&...

Your build and strength will have a lot to do with how big a rod you can handle. If you are 6ft 6" and built like a brick outhouse you may be ok with a 16ft rod and 8oz of lead. If you are 5ft and 7 stone it isn`t gonna be a good idea to go over 12ft.

The old hampshire fishermen always called `em channel-whiting and pout-whiting, don`t know how far east or west of hants/dorset they call `em channels.

I`ve been threatening to put a couple of the cod liver oil capsules on the top hook of a 3 hook flapper and give it a try when the whiting are biting.

Easy to use and slow release it might work IF i can remember to put them in the tackle box. :D

Slide some pieces of plastic insulation from electric cable onto your grip wires , this will make them 3 times the diameter of just the wire and harder to pull through the sand. If you also put the elastic band around the wires and leave a bigger bow in the line as suggested earlier you will find it...

Hi f1td. If you have a look at the commodores letter it says you will be accepted if nobody objects so it seems you do not need to be recommended by a member. I have fished from there and been to several of the angling sections `do`s' as a guest they were all excellent. Perhaps a phone call or email...

Have a look on you tube and there are a few video`s on home anodising. I was thinking of having a go but you need aluminium only parts and its not easy to get the acid (battery electrolyte).

Interesting though. :)

I agree with Andy1 i only use a little veg knife for bait and gutting on the beach or boat. I take a longer filleter on the boat because there is the likelihood of more and bigger fish which get filleted on the way back in. The long knife stays in the tackle box till then. I don`t like folding knive...
