Thanks Tony Wright for these great photos of smoothhound catches from an Eastbourne beach this weekend. Tony said:
'Thanks for the bait Friday, best of three hounds caught on squid/ ragworm wrap at a local Eastbourne beach. Regards Tony'

Kevin Morgan and Gary Banfield are pictured with catches of smoothhhound from Cooden Beach. Half a dozen hounds were caught between the pair with Gary's biggest at 8lb 10oz and Kev's at 7lb 15oz.

Smoothhounds are probably the most exciting sport fish that we catch from local beaches. They are a powerful, hard fighting fish, a member of the shark family (although they have no teeth) and are normally caught between late May and August.

Good baits for catching smoothhound are ragworm/squid cocktail, lugworm/squid cocktail, just squid or crab baits.


Young Jack Ripley fished Eastbourne reefs with his dad Luke and caught smoothhounds to 9lb 4oz, conger eel of 8lb 1oz and a 2lb bullhuss. Well done Jack!! and thanks to Luke for sending :)
