Merseyside..........Eastham (High water mark)

Postby FishingFreakJack » Tue Jan 25, 2011 7:25 pm

Eastham is a good venue in October and November. The fishing can be mixed if there are no whitening as the codling feed mainly on this. The best rigs are pullys with rotten bottoms as it can be snaggy close in.

Winter fishing:
.Codling 1.5-3.5lb
.The odd flounder
.Occasional dab
.whitening

Summer fishing:
.eels
.sole
.dabs
.flounders

The best baits in the winter are frozen black and squid but crab can be good as the sport slackens off in January and February.
If you are just scratching a 2 hook flapper is the best with 1/0 hook so if you do get a coddie then the chances of getting it it are much higher.
If you are fishing just for a coddie then a single hook pully is best.

You can fish off the big jetty which produces the most off the catches.

If i may add a little more info...

Plain leads will catch 50% more fish. I know i may seem a bold comment but its true, many a day have a failed to catch at the same distances with the same baits on the gripper rod unlike the plain lead rod.

There is also another little mark on these rocks.

Image

To get there go left at the car park and follow the green railing for 150-200 yards then you will see a gate. Go through the gate and down the steps and you will see the rocks. Big casting is not needed but plain leads and wellies are as it is muddy but not deep so no worries. On a 25/24ft tide you can fish on the rocks all of the way up to hw from lw and can produce some good fish. I also like to double patt here as you may only have 5 mins of good fishing time in one session and is unpredictable and you will need to get another bait in ASAP
