Post by wakeywildcat »

Hi, we're coming down to london next week and I intend to have a couple of days fishing from the wall at tilbury fort, can anyone advise me what bait to use and what I could expect to catch. Thanks in advance.

Hi wildcat,
Someone may correct me but i haven't heard of much coming out at tilbury wall.
The past few weeks i have been fishing just up river a bit at east tilbury and having nice flounder with the odd schoolie, coal house fort doing well also i hear. All fish on worm, lug or rag will do the job.
Good luck,i may bump in to you :D
