first time at the saltings

Post by stillsy »

having had a manic week had promised myself a days fishing before the school holiday ended. So accompanied by my brother-in-law and armed with freshly dug lug, herring & squid we set off to the saltings at South Fambridge. Fished from 3 hours before high tide to an hour after. Two other groups on teh sea wal with us. That meant 9 rods in total in the water.

Total catch was to one of the other parties - 1 school bass, 1 bootlace & 1 pin whiting

found it to be a great venue to fish from though shame the fish didn't agree. will have to try again, maybe with different tactics

Try rag and peeler for the bass.

All my bass have been caught on lug or mackerel strip. If he fish are not there no amount of peeler will get them.

I didnt realise you were familiar with South Fambridge Eccles.
Peeler might not be any good where you are but it is a top bait in Essex as is ragworm- nice juicy King Rag. You have to match your bait to the ground you're fishing.
