Ground Fishing It is recommended that those new to a rod, reel and line get to know their tools in a more controlled environment where the boat is stationary at anchor. The depth is probably no more than 35m so the tide is less, so less weight is required. One fishes on the seabed, which is generally broken rough ground or reef, where catches will include whiting, dogfish, ray, tope, spurdog, smoothhound and perhaps conger. Over winter, cod are fished for in this way
Wreck Fishing For the more energetic and experienced angler, a day’s fishing the many war wrecks off the South Coast promises catches of fine pollack, cod, ling and conger. The former are usually taken when drifting across a wreck trailing artificial lures, whilst conger fishing entails anchoring up-tide of the wreck, fishing into it with baits. Tackle loss can be quite high whilst drifting, but the rewards can be much greater.
Baits During the summer months plenty of mackerel can be caught for bait on feathers outside of the Marina before venturing further of to the fishing grounds. This can be supplemented by frozen squid and lugworm purchased in the Tackle Box on the quay just above the boat’s berth in the Marina. Sometimes cuttlefish is available. Best artificial baits for pollack and cod are usually red gills, and perks, although different lures may produce good results. Experiment!
