TAMAR REPORT 17/01/10

Post by PlymouthTaff » Mon Jan 18, 2010 9:44 am

Good morning

I fished the incoming tide from a mark on The Tamar last night (Plymouth side) from about 3.30 pm. Using a two hook flapper with mackerall strip and a 3/0 pulley pennel with lug tipped with squid. Had a few small whiting but then had a good knock on the the pulley rig and landed a whiting that was officially weighed in at 2lb 1/2oz. An hour before high tide the water went slack and became like a mill pond that killed the fishing.

Very happy with the whiting, by far my personal best, and I'm just about to sort it out for my son's tea!!

Cheers

Taff

Taff don't suppose you would like to share the whereabouts of your mark, promise I won't tell any body else.

Just between you and me it was North Corner, off the pontoon, fishing from the far left hand corner.

Good luck getting a space now!

Drove down Saturday night for a look around, really busy. Was hoping to take the boat out this morning, wher did all that mist come from, time it cleared we had missed the tide. What sort of fishing are you in to Taff, boat or shore?

Hi Guys ... i fished the Tamar before xmas (saltash side) opp Devonport .. no luck at all .. met a cpl of guys fishing the same spot and they'd had vry little either .. so it's good to see / hear its fishing better now ..

I'm up on the north coast near Bude .. myself and a few buddies have fished weekly from widemouth up to Duckpool .. serveral marks and apart from a few small bass none of us did vry well .


I think i may be coming back to the Tamar again soon .. 2010 has gotta be better than last year ..

nick if u ever need any deck crew pm me ;)

Hello Nick Nack

I generally fish from the shore, with my preference being beach fishing. BUT, i'll go where the fish are!!!

I live in Plymouth so normally fish locally but I do like Beesands - but it has died a death recently (Trawlers apparently)

I've recently joined Plymouth Sea Anglers so hopefully will get the low down on the hot spots!!!

How about yourself?

Taff, went to Beesands 2 weks ago, with missus and son aged 9. As its a long beach and wasn't sure what was about we threw out 7 rods between us.

We had a variety of bait, mackie, squid, rag, lug and even a few peelers.

We used 3 hook flappers, pully pennels and some flattie rigs with various hook sizes.

End result, 2 whiting that together would not have made a fish finger!!!

Going to try the Plym this sunday with the forlorn hope of a flounder or 2. Will be fishing just up from the Laira Bridge.
