Report:

Fished to the left of Fort Perch Rock(left hand side of groyne), 2 up, 1 down. Used Ragworm on size 2 hook (3 hook set up). Second cast had a bass of about 1 1/2 lb (33cm). My first ever bass! The Euphoria was short lived when i later caught an eel from hell! big and nasty, made a real mess of my rig so had to set up again after he had done his worst. Nothing else but plenty of bites, particularly after the turn of the tide. Great way to get back into sea fishing, 6 years since i have been. Told the bass i'll be back for his Dad soon !

Bait: Mackerel/ black lug/ snotty rag

Report:

Fished 2hrs before & 1hr after 29' tide at Town Hall Steps. Cracking day, bright sunshine compared to the weather the day before. Knock after knock with a total of 11 whiting all good size, 1 dab and 1 small codling. Best bites on macky, connected with something decent but rolled on the surface and got off! What a change from last year - fantastic. Anglers hauling either side with some decent dogfish coming out. I wish some people would stick to catch and release or learn how to kill a fish quickly - why would anyone want to eat a small doggy from the mersey....

Bait: fresh blow lug, mackerel & squid

Report:

Fished just before the clown round about, 2hrs up 1hr down. The weather was overcast and threatening to rain with an off shore wind. I used two rods both on braid with 2 hook flappers with size 2 hooks, I used blow lug tipped off with mackerel on both rods. Put the first rod out about 150 meters not a touch and I had to re-bait every 10mins because of the crabs. I chucked out a second rod about 25 yards to my left just off the rocks, only two knocks on this rod missed both. The guy next to me had two rods out and only had one knock. 7 hooks out between us and no fish for both of us.

Report:

This one will give the lads at WSF a chuckle or two. Especialy Big Kev? YOU AINT WRONG WIV DA ODDS M8 Seeing it was raining for most of the day, and all the chores in the new house are upto date, I decided its time for a fish. Checked the reports and thought I would give The tunnel vents a go. As it is only 10 minutes away I thought the walk would do me good. Got there, stood on the prom quite puzzled? This water isn't as high as it should be, I mumbled to myself? Lit a fag and continued to study the form, I used an old washed up shopping trolley as a guide, (only on the wirral, lol) After 5 minutes it dawned on me that is was going out. ARRHH O.K. Back home in to the car and head for New Brighton. Set up and cast out, only to see the wind had caught my bag and the Raggies were making a bid for freedom? after shooing of a few Gull's I managed to round up what was left of the escapees. Sat down and poured a well earned coffee, lit up a fag with the ever faithfull Zippo only to have the wind blow the flame back and singe my eybrows, then I stood up to rub my singe knocking my coffee over. Something tells me I should have stayed in bed? Now to the fish>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> > > > > WOT FISH? YOUR AVIN A LAFF AINT YA??

High/Night14-01-2006
Bait: Lug, Squid

Report:

Encouraged by reports of codling and decent whiting in the area I decided to have a solo session at New Brighton. As it was my first time fishing there it was a case of look for areas of the sea wall covered in dried lug and rusty hooks and hope it was a good mark. Perch Rock lighthouse was about half a mile to my right and I was near a slipway (hope it helps). Early flood produced nothing but whiting so I upped my rig to twin 6/0s, 3 or 4 black lug and tipped with squid hoping for the elusive cod or bigger whiting over higher water. All I mananged to see was more whiting rattles as they pecked away at the bait and avoided the hooks. 2 other anglers near me had same fate. All being well will try again later in the week.

Report:

Fished for about 2.5 hours down to low water and an hour up, ended up with 3 whiting and one dab, all small. The kids were out on their floating lawnmowers, good luck to them is what I say, they look so cool and one day they might just move up to a Raleigh chopper if they're very good and Santa is kind.

WHATS GOING ON?

Bait: Black Suey, Squid

Report:

Blanked the second time in a row. I was using black suey and squid I ran out of suey and went over to the groynes ang got some mussels to use as bait someone lent me a bit of suey in the end but if you run out of bait and theres know one around run over to the groynes and pull some mussels of the rocks use three or four at a time depending on hook size, and lash thenm on with elastic thread. Anyway There must be fish there I saw three caught (dabs). The lead kept sinking into the mud on the bottom and was hard to reel in due to the suction. If you fish the side of the bank on the left as you come up the road to the carpark, take 40 paces away from the groyne coming from the fort, because if you fish next to the groyne youll be constantly getting snagged unless you hve a hell of a long cast, 40 paces away from the groyne there is a pool where the current whirls around thats why i call it the whirlpool ive seen lots of fish caught from this mark. All I caught was a cold and a crab I also gained a painfull slash on my left index finger after repairing a birds nest the line cut though it like cheese wire.

Report:

Fished the W.S.F competition in the day,.but I blanked (not even a bite) and believe me I was not alone. I think the comp was a great success though, All juniors got a prize whether they caught or not, and congratulations must go to Chris (Webmaster) for making it happen.. So I've got all this bait left, decided to fish the low water with me mate Steve, And the difference in fishing was amazing, we where getting bites every cast!, total bag consisted of 2 plaice a few whiting,2-3 small codling, and Steve also landed a nice 2-2½ Cod.

Fished above venue, bit of a last minute thing, waste of time really as all did not go well. Was very cold and windy and after two hours caught nothing so decided to pack up, just as reeling in there was a dab on the end of the line-so at least didn't blank. Not much was pulled that night so wasn't that bad I suppose. tight lines Steve H

Report:

Hi Chris went out fishing on Saturday night just down behind the Chelsea night club. Bait I took were mackrell,lug and rag worm. It was not a very low tide and we fished it out from 2100hrs until low which was about 2350.Unfortunatly it was a very unsuccessful night as we caught absolutely nothing all we done was fed the crabs. Well that's all really for now I think we will try again in a few weeks time so tight lines for now Steve Come on people if you read this please place your report as it all helps me enjoy other venues as I pass all my back for everyone else to use!

Report:

Fished the low water at New Brighton (opposite the pumping station) Fished just to the left behind the breakwater bait used mackerel, sand eel, lug and razor fish. Fished from about 18.00hrs until 22.00hrs weather was good and the sea state very calm, The fishing was slow to start and we landed a few undersized whiting and 1 small codling, We also landed 5 dabs. Not much was caught with the outgoing tide but seemed to get more knocks on the incoming tide, they seemed to prefer the mackerel as bait. That's it really other than to say if you have logged on and are reading this report please send yours in about your next trip and everyone will be able to enjoy what is left of the fishing before they go back to deeper waters !!!.
