Fishing has picked up on the north coast shoreline in particular from the surf beaches.
Recent sessions have produced some decent bass up to around 2½lb along with hosts of smallish flounders. The flounders can be a pain when targeting the bass as even the smallest flattie will attempt, and occasionally succeed, to impale itself on a lug stuffed 4/0 hook.
Several good seatrout to 5lb have also put in an appearance from the beach and the seasonal mackerel and pollack are showing up to the anglers fishing the rockier marks. The settled spell of weather should bring the ballan wrasse in to the shallower kelp beds. This month should also see the first of the shore caught spurdogs being taken from the deeper water.
