Bait: mack feathers and anything else I could lay my hands on

Report:

Fished the piers and jetties - few fish about but plenty (read - bloody hundreds) of salmon under the woodwork and overhangs - bailiff was out watching out for poachers - need more water to run the rivers apparently - was sorely tempted to foul a few with a treble, but resisted and caught a small dab instead.

Bait: Peeler/Black Lug/Rag/Mack

Report:

Fished a WSFA summer league match from 12noon til 5pm (high water 4pm) from the beach on the left of the harbour.A few plaice and flounders were landed,but a lot were small.I took 1 plaice and 3 flounders mainly on lug tipped with mack.A couple of undersize codling also came out.r It`s a very good deep shingle beach,which is well worth a try in winter,particularly with an onshore wind.

Bait: rag, lug, mackerel & peeler

Report:

Went to Workington on Sunday to take part in the WSFA summer league. We had a bit of brekkie then a drive around to find a suitable spot. The best marks were taken because of the Maryport Open, but we did find a good beach just to the left of the breakwater. The fishing was fairly slow with a few fish showing during mid flood. There didn't seem to be any consistency to the preferred bait, rig or distance, but each change seemed to eke out another fish. Seeing Gary catch a codling, I though I'll go for one those. Chucked on a couple of big lug and a little tippet of mackerel belly just to keep the hook point clear, and hey presto....... a nice plaice of 1lb 4oz. Caught 2 plaice and 2 flounder, with 3 in-size fish to win the match (makes up for blanking at the last one).
