Complete beginner

Postby wag111 » Tue Dec 26, 2017 10:50 pm

Hello,
Complete novice to sea angling as been a carp angler for 25 years. First session was at seacombe last saturday "tunnel vents" I think it's called.
Bit of a non event as I couldn't seen to hold the lead on the bottom and lost a few in the snags(There seem to be plenty) .
I'm looking at going on tomorrows night tide at 5.20pm. Any suggestions on where to fish 2 hours high and 1 low from the prom as I don't feel experienced to fish the beach yet .
Many thanks

Hi mate,
Try Guinea Gap double slope below the baths, perfect tide for there. Always plenty of fish there and the chance of a Cod too. You’ll catch plenty of Whiting and Dabs if the Cod don’t turn up. You’ll only need black lug and fish baits. Nice easy and comfortable fishing and you shouldn’t loose any gear to snags. :D
Try fishing it 2up and 2down mate. Can fish well on the ebb. 8)

You'll need to use around a 5oz gripper lead at least (more if the tide requires - you can get the tide sizes from the tide info on here). 2 hook flapper rig with size 2 to 2/0 hooks with a piece of lug tipped with a finger nail sized piece of mackerel or squid will catch smaller stuff, bigger baits (lug &squid) on clipped down rigs for the cod if they're about :thumbsup:

I am a newbie too and been on 3 tides now and fished king dock and marina wharf on liverpool side. Biggest tide fished was 9.6m which was more challenging. I caught whiting, Codling and Dabs and never blanked. It's good lighting and always a few lads to say hi too around there. I recommend it anyway.
