Shoreham Widewater KSF Meet

Five headed to Widewater in Shoreham to fish the beach, some trying for the Golden Grey Mullet. We turned up and it was raining farly heavily and the added wind made it less pleasant. There were rafts of weed crossing the swims between the stone groins. These proved to be the end of the fishing here after about an hour, of that picking weed off of the lines.

We headed to the western arm of Shoreham harbour and paid the £3 entry and the extra pounds per rod and spread along the arm. It was a great shelter from the sea and weed and the sun even came out…

During the day lots of species were caught. I manged to catch my first ever Red Mullet. It wasn’t big but water a lovely shade of red. Here is the little fella:

Not too long after I caught its friend:

A short while after came my first Bream. This was new species number 2 for the day. There was some thought it was a Red Bream, but after looking at a picture of one it looks more like a black one with a reddish back:

Lastly came the third new species for the day, taking me to 9 in my overall hunt, a Plaice:

None of the fish were big enough to keep but it was still a great day out.

Other fish caught during the day were Golden Grey Mullet, Thin Lipped Mullet, Shanny and Mackerel and Dab

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.
