Hi Mark

You'll be basically on the River Tamar which is fishing as good as anywhere at the moment. If you come over to the Plymouth side, just to the right of the Torpoing Ferry is a spot called Pottery Quay, its a piece of wasteland that you can just walk on to - you wont go far wrong there. You can catch most things off there including Bass, Ray and they are still catching some codling! normal baits.

There are a few bait shops in Plymouth but try Toms in St budeaux he and his staff are helpful and will point you in the right direction. If you find yourself at a loose end give me a pm on this site and I'll see if Im around for a session.

Cheers for the replies guys. Will definately get out for a session or two. I was down visiting Raleigh on Wednesday and saw a couple of blokes looking for crabs i think so must be some peelers around there. Looking forward to it.

Taff i will not have a computer to sent you a PM mate so keep your eyes open for me on the shore and come over for a chat, i'm a bald geordie so not too hard to miss!

Thanks again guys
