w660_1362751_charterboattheneedlesprovid

 

In partnership with the Professional Boatman's Association, the Angling Trust has published guidance for skippers and passengers for the safe resumption of Charter Boat fishing in England under COVID-19 restrictions. Boat skippers should adapt the guidance to suit the special circumstances of their boat, and passengers should follow the skipper's instructions at all times.

The Angling Trust has also published best practice guidelines for the safe resumption of shore and boat sea angling competitions now that further lockdown restrictions have been lifted.

Our Angling Support Hub contains a wealth of information and advice to support anglers, clubs and other organisations during the COVID-19 pandemic. It is regularly being updated with the latest Government guidance and the impact that has on angling.

Shoreham Port east and west breakwaters closed to public

Shoreham Port breakwaters will remain closed to the general public during the Covid-19 pandemic. Both the east and west breakwaters are very important sea angling venues in Sussex and visited by anglers from as far away as London, Kent and Hampshire, as well as hundreds of Sussex anglers. The port cannot guarantee everyone's safety during the pandemic and have had to make the difficult decision to prohibit all access until such times as the government deem it safe to completely relax the social distancing regulations.

Fish of the month: Turbot

It's prime time for turbot along the south coast at present. The best destinations are around Weymouth, drifting on the Shambles Bank or for a shore based venue try Chesil Beach. Alternatively, try boat fishing other sand or shell grit banks along the south coast like the Skerries Bank out of Dartmouth. End tackle can vary on location and personal preference, but basic flowing traces are best, between 5 and 10 foot long using 30lb mono and a single size 6/o 'J' hook.

Bait should be a long sliver of fresh or frozen mackerel, lance or a whole sandeel fished hard on the bottom. When drifting over banks, make sure your weight maintains contact with the bottom and keep your spool in the free spool holding it with your thumb for a quick release of line when you get a bite. Let the line out for at least 10 sections then click the reel into gear, lift the rod tip and start winding in.
