Coalhouse fort today 24th march

Post by RichB »

Hi everyone

I fished Coalhouse Fort today on bottle beach, only fished for 3 1/2 hours and caught 6 sizable flounder nearly a fish every cast, only 1/2 of either side of high water was there a quiet period. Best fish went 33cm for about 14oz. with the smallest just sizable.

Weather very good a bit windy at times but comfortable, bait lug & rag with fish coming on both baits, rigs - two pats and single hook pulley.

I did not plan on going to Coalhouse was going to do the point on Canvey, was only when picking my bait up at Canvey angling did the man mention Coalhouse and as i have not fish here in a few years i thought lets go for it - thanks Canvey angling and great bait again. If anyone gets the chance get down to venue a very good session as i only fished 3 1/2 hrs.

Nice report rich!
That part of the thames seems to be fishing really well at the moment.
I had a great day last weekend just up the river from where you were, loads of flatties and small bass thrown in, loads of bites, great sport :D
