Was anchored up. I fish some mussel/Welk beds just off of Southsea. These are basicly a flat seabed and feels shingley/sandy. Do some forum hunting and find out where the area's are up by you.

I used lug on Wednesday and had no luck, but I see no reason why they wouldn't take it. Even though there were over70 boats out today, not all caught. I was listening to the Radio and there were plenty that didn't catch.

Haven't really decided how to cook em yet. I usually shallow fry them in seasond flour or egg and breakcrumbs. Might try putting a knob of butter, ground pepper, squirt of lemon and some Thyme and ground ginger in a foil parcel and baking them in the oven.

Any other suggestions out there?

I like flatties fried best , but as you say , dry em off.. egg 'em, then I make a breadcrumb mix (from old ends in the bread bin) with some mixed herbs and garlic salt.

I use oil and a butter mix then cook on a low heat so the crumb goes brown and doesnt burn .. IMHO you wont have to go tell anyone its time for tea ,.. they will come looking for you

I like the Idea of the herbs and garlic.

I cooked ours tonight by poaching in the oven. That way they all got served at the same time. My one was cooked in the thyme, gound pepper, lemon juice and ginger with a knob of butter. Was delicous! The others I cooked with just the butter, lemon and thyme, just to be safe.

Hopfully tomorrows plaice will be big enough to take some fillets from.
