June 28th at West Parade Hythe


I got there at about 5:30 and the water was very low, butt chucked a line out anyway and feathered for mackeral as well. There were 5 groups fishing by high tide. About 20 minutes after high tide I caught my first of the night.  He went back after a few pics, the first crab […]

Cheeky Monday in Hythe


Having fishing work at 3 and the high tide at 21:40, I sped home to get over to Hythe. Having set up a bit further up the beach than my last session, i managed a whiting on my first cast and then things died off. Nearer high tied the rod tips were bending again. I […]

14-1 Saturday Session


I headed down to West Parade in Hythe, parked up and set up at about 4. Things didn’t start well as my first cast broke the 60lb leader due to squashing my crimp to hard. I managed to find my tackle behind me on the beach a little later, so that was good at least. […]

A long, but rewarding day


I headed out on Saturday AM to meet a WSF forum member to learn a bit about pumping lugworm. We met at about 7AM and proceeded out to the spot for the worms. During the time out there I managed about 70 worms which I was more than happy with, but nothing in comparison to […]

Flattie but not unhappy


I headed back to Bishopstone for an afterwork session. It was pretty windy down there which made reading the rod tip difficult. About 30 minutes after I started I spotted a twitch that didn’t look like it was caused by wind or wave. I waited for the next twitch and lifted the rod and wound […]

Selsey Success


Having headed to Selsey for about 7:30 to see high tide in at 9:45, I set up and cast out. I was using combinations of rag, crab and squid and nothing was seeming to want to bite. Eventually at 11:45 I was getting what looked like my lead had lost grip again, so I wound […]

Hayling Island – Langstone Side


I went to Hayling and parked in the car park next to the Langstone entrance. I walked along towards the front of the beach and set up near the entrance to the harbor due to too many people being around. I stayed here for a couple of hours and then after pulling in tonnes of […]

Owls Castle Farm


I headed to the lakes and arrived at about 5PM, so only had just over an hour of good light to fish with. The leaves were starting to cover the surface of the lake but the carp were still around the top and loved the biscuits that got thrown in. I managed to bag a whopping […]

Chalk Springs – New PB


I treated myself to a session of 4 fish at Chalk Springs in Arundel. I have been here before and love the very clear waters and also the fact its only 10 miles from home. I turned up at about 9am. The fish weren’t the easiest to catch but that all adds to the fun. […]

Owls Farm Castle


I headed to Owls Farm Castle CADAC lake the other week for a quick afternoon session. I arrived at about 4 and left by 6:30. I wasn’t able to get to my normal spot so I tried a different lake there. I threw out a few dog biscuits and within about a minute the carp […]
