Skeggy beach fishing

Post by Steve D » Tue May 22 2018 21:17

I visit Skeg a fair bit in the summer and the beach is a 5 minute walk from the van we stay in, I've only had one bash with some lures in the past and caught a carrier bag ๐Ÿ™„

Is it worth lure fishing off the beach or I'm I wasting my time? The area is near Butlins.

I don't own any proper sea fishing gear to bait fish with so would just stick to using lures like Toby's etc.

Cheers.

get yourself up to Chapel Point---need a wind blowing onto the beach, can be some cracking bass action (if the seals arnt there)

Let me ask you one question. Is your money that good. Will it buy you forgiveness. Do you think that it could. I think you will find When your death takes its toll All the money you made Will never buy back your soul.

Yeah that's what I'm thinking Andrew,( ref blasting lures about.)The thing is the pub we normally end up in during the evening is right on the beach front so the plan was to have a few pints then have a bash :gulp:

fished in front of that pub at jinglebells----wacked a couple of marshworm baited hooks out and had a couple of flatties (better than lugworm round there) whilst sinking a few bevvies
my mate had a biggish thornback on (at least we think it was one) took him down tide and broke him off---this would be early summer.

Bait fished along that area using 3.5lb tc pike rods, the mistake many make is trying to cast too far, catch a rising tide at dusk and baits only need to be cast to the 3rd breaker or so, and rarely did I cast more than say 70 yards.
Beach tripods are cheap as on flee bay and you really don't need much gear, most of which you will already have.
As for the lure fishing, as I always find it difficult to lure fish and drink, I dont lure fish!
