thanks for the comments guys. some interesting arguements made about scent trails. personally i think the fresher the worm or fish bait the better, especially in estuarine waters where the water is particularly coloured. i know fish do use sight to an extent especially in clear water but with murky ...

thanks for the replies guys.
maybe i better not waste money on it then!
i think i will go for getting some frozen blacks for the freezer instead then.
trouble is, local to me, blow lug and rag fishes better for the flounder and schoolies.

hi mate, Walmer is fishing well at the moment for whiting, dabs, doggies and the occasional codling. pick a day after or during a good blow though, a south westerly always seems to produce better for me. Hythe beaches fishing well for the same species as is dungeness. the flounders are starting to s...
