We have had numerous reports of smoothhound catches from Pevensey beaches over the weekend, both night and day!
Thanks Martin Wright for this picture of a 100cm smoothhound caught earlier this week on lugworm bait, one of many catches this week!
Thanks Danny May who sent these pictures and report:
'Thanks for the Ragworm! fantastic session this morning by Billy’s Tower (Normans Bay). Unfortunately lost what would have been my biggest ever Smoothound at my feet but the session was more than worth it'
Thanks Nathan Lower who sent this great picture reporting:
'Fishing a local beach this morning. In the end I had 2 plaice on lug, 2 thorn backs and 4 smooth hounds, this being the biggest caught on a squid and lug combo'
Well done Nathan - great to hear .
