Good catches on the south coast

RECENT matches and visits have shown there are good times to be had by anglers who are getting increasingly frustrated with the seemingly ever decreasing catches from local waters.

RECENT matches and visits have shown there are good times to be had by anglers who are getting increasingly frustrated with the seemingly ever decreasing catches from local waters.For the keen angler there is good news, drive to the South Coast. Pack a bit of lug worm or rag worm and take a mackerel. A relatively short drive to Chesil Beach and surrounding beaches for miles are awash with whiting and some good pouting at night. Fishing these common marks will produce a bulk amount of good whiting and some nice pouting well within casting range that are indeed tasty fish. Fishing in the dark is a must. This fishing is particularly enjoyable for a bit of fun with friends and family as fish cannot be missed.There are many ways to cook small fish such as whiting but none better than "poor mans scampi". Cut the fillets off the fish into strips, dip them in a whisked egg then into some plain seasoned flour and drop into a frying pan with some already hot oil, wait until the coating goes brown and remove for eating. Squirt a little lemon on them. Bluewater Group Financial Investments are sponsoring a Weston Outcasts Open on March 22, sign in from 10am at the Bayview Cafe on Burnham seafront. Fishing is from noon to 4pm.First prize is �250, second �100 and third �50. There will also be a bulging raffle table, plus other prizes. Contact Stuart on 07811 338841 for details.
