Get the jig right Smiley and the fish will come dancing. :D
You are quite right to save the 20p's, use the money to keep the brass monkies warm.

There are a good number of rock marks in the north east that hold cod all year. Also smoothounds can be had from some of the beaches, as well as bass and flatties with mackerel caught from harbour walls. :D

Fish finders are ok, but weed in the water will appear on your screen as fish. Perhaps you were just there and the fish were elsewhere. :(
Welcome to the forum anyway. >:D<

Definitely be around during Easter Andy, I know a lot of people with itchy fingers at the moment, so it may get a little crowded.

Yes very well, done. Lets hope the Manx government realise the true importance of angling to their tourist industry, and do something to stop or reduce this practice.

Lugworms, Razors, prawns and peeler crabs are all worth using in this area. Ragworms will catch flatties and the odd school bass but not much else. Yellowtail and prawns cocktailed tend to find bigger fish when they are about. Being close to the river, it would definitely pay you to learn which area...

If you have back problems go for the small bore pump, as it is a lot less stressful. Also use a small drop of cooking oil to lubricate the pump. As for method, some put the pump over the cast and some put it at the side and agle the pump towards it, I suggest that if you do get a pump, try both ways...

Try one booby bead on each hooklength, these rattle as the baits are moved by the tide. All flatties are very inquisitive and will move in to investigate and take the bait. Small harour rag in bunches and a small white rag for tipping off, are an excellent bait, but use fine wire long shank hooks. G...

30lb hook length should be fine with 60lb rig body, bearing in mind that both take the strain together and the thinner line will stretch more readily. Going back to the original problem of the snood tangling, this could be caused by backwash in the surf, as the bait is dragged around by wave action....

I run my running ledgers up the rig and over an inverted wire bait clip, then back down and clip the bait tight behind the lead. This allows a snood length to be varied, casts well and keeps good bait presentation. :)
