Rough Weather and a Dirty Sea - 30th September 2019

Rough Weather and a Dirty Sea - the Fishing is Good - even the odd Codling! 

(For more recent Sea Angling Catch News - Click Here)

The recent rougher weather has stirred things up a bit meaning the sea is dirty and some nice fish are showing off local beaches!! 
Recent catches in Pevensey Bay have included bass, sole thornback rays and dogfish as well as pout and whiting. There have also been reports of the occasional codling.  John Philp is pictured with a 4lb 2oz codling caught this week in Pevensey Bay on lugworm bait - great to see!

Also pictured below is Jim Whippy with a sole of 1lb 3½oz and Colin Findley with a bass of 1lb 12½oz, both caught in Thursday's Anderida Beach Fishing Club Competition held in Pevensey Bay. A thornback ray of 3 lb 3½oz and a bass of 1lb 10½oz were also caught by Tim Lane. Keith Hesling also caught a sizeable bass and Matt Cox caught a 1lb sole. There were also some nice dogfish caught in the comp.
