Spinning near Chatham


I headed out to catch what I thought was a 5PM high ide. Turns out it wasa 7PM high. This gave me some time to have a recky around the area to let the water in. I headed around the bay at Motney hill towards the sewerage works. The water didn’t look too deep and it was very murky. There was another guy fishing who I caught up with later.

I headed around to near the sewerage point but decided to go check out another area also whilst I still had time. The point may be good with a weighted line and bait but possibly not for spinning and definately not for fly.

This shows the muddy channels that are around this area. You need to be careful as some of the paths are very thin. Do not slip in!!
This is the outlook to the bay with Motney hill over to the left.
This shows the point to fish from. You can cast into the deeper channel from there.

I headed to the other side of the outward lying area and the sewerage works. This had a sea wall which slopped down to the rocky/weedy ground before disappearing under the very murky waves. It was a very windy day which made casting tricky.

This is the sea wall

I had a few casts here and christened the area with a lost lure. I then headed to the area by the car park to go out on the arm again. I chatted to the fisherman who explained about getting peeler crabs if you get the tides right. I had a spin for a while and headed home expectedly with empty hands.

There are another few areas to try around here and they will be gotten to shortly.

About Chris Ainger

I have been working in IT since 1998 in the Public Housing Sector. I have worked with Citrix since 2003 in the days of Citrix Metaframe XP 1.0 FR2. Since then I have been through the processes of upgrading to Presentation Server 4.0 with a farm of around 150 servers. Since then I have helped create a farm of around 200 servers using XenApp 6.0 on VMware 4.1. This was a great experience which has only increased during the upgrades of the environment for out 2000+ users. All of our clients are the WYSE 10 series using ThinOS which I have helped configure for individual users from a central location making administration very simple. I gained my CCA qualification in XenApp 6.0 in January 2012. I am a big fan of SolarWinds also, which is a great monitoring tool. It is very versatile with a small footprint of resource usage on the targeted devices. I am currently designing the interfaces for the IT department for daily use and also a Service view for the Support Desk Team. I am also a keen fisherman, having restarted again after 20 years. I set myself yearly targets to try to complete which makes this more interesting and belong to several forums of other like-minded folks. I, on occasion, fly fish for trout as a treat once in a while or when the fridge gets empty and also sea fly fish for bass and mullet. My main area is sea fishing from either beach, harbour wall or pier. There are so many species of fish to catch around the UK that you can mix up the locations to try something different.
