Chesil Beach Holiday!

Post by Geggy_poos »

Hi,

Booked 3 nights away at Sea Barn Farm Campsite which is near Weymouth and 5 mins from Chesil Beach.

Will no doubt do some fishing while we are there and just generally chilling out. Can anyone reccomend spots along Chesil to fish preferably near Weymouth and what baits etc to take and rigs etc or just any generall adivce. I'm not really after any huge fish just prefer to catch some stuff and have some fun but wouldnt mind a BASS!!! Going a week Sunday so not long to get whats needed.

Hopefully land a few new speices and have a good time :D

Thanks in advance!!

Greg

The fleet is always a good bet 4 school bass and does throw up the odd 5lb fish to plugs plastics and spinners. Tides will be good for chesil dont be afraid to use plugs close in if you can find the space. BIG mackeral baits 15 yards out often produces. Worth trying hermit crab for an early codling. Portland is also a good bet 4 bass and pollock. So many marks so little time.

Dont seem to be able to get it to work. Dennings usualy has a good supply of fresh and frozen bait best to order pealers and you take pot luck with live hermit as they dont keep

Weymouth angling has fresh bait, it is situated opposite the swing bridge, only difficulty is parking.
