WHILE COVID-19 IS DISRUPTING OUR LIVES IN MANY WAYS and causing confusion, it seems the initial national lockdown has also been used, in conjunction with health and safety concerns, to ban angling from a popular venue in Scotland. It all centres on the fishing port of Peterhead, where oil services firm Asco has a lease of 999 years on the town’s north and south breakwaters and has decided to ban public access. In what is a long-running dispute, Peterhead Angling Club is fighting the ban by Asco, which rents the breakwaters from Peterhead Port Authority. The club members say the facilities were donated to the community by the Admiralty in 1959 and that five generations of local families have fished the two piers, which are regarded as public assets. Having closed the facilities…

platforms for success

EXPOSED AND ALWAYS TAKING the main brunt of brutal sea conditions, breakwaters offer shore anglers the perfect opportunity to experience unbeatable sport. These long, man-made structures poking out to sea provide instant access to deep water and fast tides, which normally can’t be reached from the beach. Fundamentally, the ground can be harsh, especially close to the structure where the foundations and rubble that was dumped during its construction is waiting to eat up any baited rig that falls into its traps. However, hone your tactics perfectly and the rewards will be memorable. Although breakwaters are superb fishing venues, winter shore anglers have a constant nemesis in the weather. These hardy structures are designed with a purpose, and that is to prevent heavy seas pounding an estuary or harbour. An onshore gale…

autumn harvest

MOST OF MY AUTUMN fishing will be dominated by the weather. In a season that brings wind and rain, it is these conditions that decide where I will fish and for what species. Fishing can be really productive at this time of year, as long as you can find a sheltered place to fish. Everything is still feeding heavily, cashing in on the baitfish while they are still inshore. The clock is ticking though. I have to take every opportunity to stay on the wrasse , especially on the east coast of Scotland. The North Sea wrasse disappear after October. After that it is unlikely I will encounter them from the shore until June next year. If the wrasse aren’t playing ball, I try flattie bashing and it really helps that the…

it’s an obsession!

OBSESSIVE BEHAVIOUR, SUCH AS constantly checking tide tides, weather apps and other anglers’ social media, grips me for several days when planning my next fishing session. This time, with a little luck, the low pressure would move in over the South Coast and bring cloud and rain to provide a break in the sunshine and some different conditions to target rays. I settled on visiting Highcliffe beach in Hampshire, which I had not fished before. Venturing into unfamiliar grounds always adds that bit of extra excitement, along with an almost deluded expectation of something new and better fishing. At home in Surrey the night before the trip, I checked everything over and over again, including my bait (mackerel, bluey, launce and cuttlefish) in the freezer. Next day, I set off on the 90-minute trip…

adventures of a junior shore angler

MY LATEST ADVENTURE SAW me heading north to the beautiful sandy beach at Druridge Bay in Northumberland. The fishing here is very easy and laid back, where plenty of fish can be caught almost under the rod tips. My main target species was flatfish, and in particular turbot. There is only a handful of places in the North East where you have a realistic chance of catching one and Druridge Bay is a well-known hotspot. The venue is also superb for targeting flounders, so I had plenty of options to locate a bite or two. My choice of rig was easy, and I opted to use a long flowing three-hook flapper. One of the snoods had a pop-up bead placed above a size 4 Owner Pint hook. My bait bucket was filled…
