BRIGHTON MARINA FISHING for the East and West breakwaters

BRIGHTON MARINA FISHING for the East and West breakwaters

shop news and a round up

I spent the day on the east wall today monitoring those ppl walking on & off etc, being a general pest to those wanting to wander along the wall for fun who read the sign in front of them & then think it doesn’t apply to them!
YUP they all got turned back politely :).
Regarding the fishing , well it wasn’t too clever to be honest with most people struggling on both walls.
A few plaice , some bream and 2-3 gurnards with a small flurry of stringy gar fish really summed up the day and other days this week… oh wait , I forgot , 4 mackerel were caught at 4 am !

Now here comes the BUT yes it’s a big but as im told that the last few NIGHTS have been very good
Many ask me re nights if the horse mackerel are in and im told that yes the horsies have arrived, and not only that the normal mackerel have also been swimming with them and are making the jump into the somewhat green cloudy water(to be fair it did clear on the front end –higher bays)
The low bays are still being impacted by cloudy water, my guess caused by spoil from the cliffs and recent rain…. Back to the night fishing , as said its doiing quite nicely thank you šŸ™‚ šŸ™‚ the moulting crabs are bringing all sorts in on the feed. Smooth hounds, plenty of bass are active, 2-3 types of rays are being drawn in as well as the horse mac & mackies all ready mentioned !
Even the boss has remarked how well the night fishing has been and what with the dredger working the harbour entrance it has been stirring up sand eels of which the bass are now spoilt for choice on chowing down.

In essence , if you haven’t given the walls a go at night now would be a good time to try it.

And finally as the title says I have some shop news and will updtae the site as needed šŸ™‚
an normal we have an 8am opening but any boats having an early departure can access some early bait if they ring Dave early enough to sort out a pick up while the shops front door is shut.
CLOSING times have returned to summer times and with close
Mon-Thurs 8am – 5pm
Fri/Sat 8am – 6pm
Sun 8am – 4.30pm

the tacklebox will be on the move again in the next few week. The new location when its ready with be alongside the rear of the West Quay in the Glassed square build that was going to be used as a bus waiting lounge when plans were to re route the buses so they picked up opposite where they do now… Thats been scrapped & the Tacklebox as I say will move into what was going to be a bus waiting lounge. Its almost back to where it was prior to all the shifting about’s.
more updates to follow when I get them.
