Spurn point report

Post by Devvo »

set off for spurn to fish it two hrs before and after high tide and decided to fish the very tip and strangely there wasnt a sole in sight ( excuse the fish pun). The weather was not bad apart from it being thick fog which u coudnt see 20 yards in but there was no breeze and it was quite mild. Both me and my dad set up two rods with paternoster rigs and used squid and lugworm. Conditions were perfect until we reeled in to masses of red weed and thats pritty much all we caught...getting quite used to this, 5 blanks :(( and still going strong.

Dev :D

point end is best fished at low tide, having said that the last time i went a couple of months ago,all we managed between 4 of us was the same masses of the dreaded red weed, Was thinking about going there again monday but thanks to your report,think we might venture elsewhere, cheers for the insight HAPPY NEW YEAR ALL!!

Dont worry m8 im sure you will break your duck. Had my first blank of 2010 the other day. It happens to us all and gets you down sometimes but like i found out you can have a crap session one day and a few days later it can be great. No tide is the same and its something i cant work out.

weve had south winds so you dont fish spurn fishing the point at spurn is a gamble now as all the crab pots and nets that are lost in storms are washing in to the deep water channell and are the reason you can loose a lot of gear spurn is a funny spot to fish you want a really big tide in one spot and just a short distance you need a small tide im waiting for a certain tide now we are in to january and i know ill catch cod

Spurn Head

Post by stores »

Having just retired and moved to Lincolnshire (from Norfolk) thought I'd better join a sea angling web site to try to get some info on fishing on a coast that I have never been on before. I have been fishing a few times since retirement on the Lincs coast but with negative results. I am not new to fishing and have had my fair share of blanks but the Lincs coast is not for me which is why I am trying to get further afield. I have read with interest the Spurn Head reports and would like to try a few hours on this beach. I would therefore like to pick someone's brains re places to fish along the beach, times to fish ie half water to top, from low water up etc. Bait I'm not too bothered with as I normally fish with mussel/lug/squid/peeler and find that a combination of any of the above will catch fish from Scotland to Plymouth.

Any info/comments would be appreciated

Hi Stores and a warm welcome to the forum!
In Grimsby myself and I'd recommend Humberston Creek.
