Thread: Sod the rifles it's that time of year

    Sod the rifles it's that time of year

    Cold spell is forecast for next week.
    My mind screamed " time to go dab fishing!"
    So into the fishing diarys to find if my instinct is correct.
    Low and behold. A trend that suggests that a week after the first frosts the dab fishing becomes excellent.

    Along with whiting and cod turning up of the south hants coast.! My favourite the flounder starts putting on a show.

    Also the trout fishing becomes "easy"

    So what are the anglers plans on here for the next few weeks until Christmas?

    Anything that puts up a fight on sensible tackle

    Im missing being down on the SE coast at this time of the year, waiting for the big blows to stir the sea up, fishing for late bass and early cod off the beach.. and of course, dabs! Theyre brilliant eating!!

    Do you fish off the beach mainly or the boat?

    Fishing in the NE is not a spot on fishing down in Kent.

    Beach will now be my main concern. I sold my boat to buy my rifles!
    Gilkicker piont will be the mark for the coming action!

    I have to say. I will be getting a boat again. A raider 18 will do. I only need a 2 seater that can take me +1 to Alderney.

    How do you cook your dabs? Simply fryed in butter for me!

    I'm waiting for my little river to fine down little then will have a crack at the roach and chub with a stick float.

    keeping an eye on the beach reports for when the cod turn up.

    going to throw some lures about for pike and big perch as well on a couple of still waters.
