Fishing

We have been having a great time fishing with the family and cooking what we catch on the beach which has got me eating fish as it tastes so good.

We are only beginners so we have very little knowledge about sea fishing but the good news is we are catching fish!

Do you lot have any good tips? We fish around Southampton - Cowes area and hope to get a lobster pot one day

Been using a running weight with one hook and rag worm.

Feathers are good! have about 4-5 hooks on one line with a weight on the end, lower it all the way or close to the sea bed and just reel it off the bottom. Then just gently lift & lower the end of the rod.....and the fish will come! no bait needed either!

Is it true you should stop and try feathers where you see seagulls diving?

So all I need to do is follow the trawler, no rods needed

you'd need to keep it down overnight for best results


Seagulls diving into the sea in the summer usually mean fish are about ,, they hang around outfall pipes too .
