Shoreham to Brighton Fishing Outing Tomorrow

Post by acidcloud » 13 Apr 2018, 11:47

Short notice but we will be taking the T38 out from Shoreham, East Sussex Harbour tomorrow morning and fishing down to Brighton piers. We launch on natural beach launch next to Shoreham RNLI there is a free carpark and easy launch and retrieve directly into the harbour opposite the harbour entrance.

Weather and waves looks good
Plenty of Place / Flatties about, few early Mackerel and herring have been caught of marina wall
Chance also of a Bass (catch and return) and some Pollock seen

Arrive 9:00
Launch 9:30
Probably come back in around 16:00

Any ribs or sibs wanting to join are welcome.

Phil

Waiting for sea mist to lift - Shoreham Harbour East Sussex
Sorry about short notice but I am still working not fully retired yet and often make decisions to launch close to day as whether can change right up to launch time.

Slow start as a sea mist came in just as we arrived in the morning, had to wait until 11:00 am before it was safe enough to leave the harbour.During the morning and early afternoon the mist came and went but still plenty of viability to stay safe. By the way there is a wooden jetty but you cant use it at very low tide, we tend to go out mid tine and come back in mid tide to use jetty.

First launch this year and the T38 and Suzuki 20HP injection were up to it. We have replaced the original launch wheels with larger wheels an that made a big difference on the shingle beach. Suzuki started first pull after being stored all winter.

We fished four different marks but only catching Place all day, but did end up with a nice 2lb Place caught on a whole fresh lug.
There is a tackle shop near to launch site that sells good bait.

The most surreal part of the day was when we were fishing off the old west pier and we started to hear music and a cruise boat came out of the mist with a party on board all in sea themed fancy dress, I think it was an alternative wedding. The bride was dressed as a huge Squid, the groom was dressed as a shark. We were so stunned we both asked , "did you take a picture" as the disappeared back into the mist.

We met a Ribs and Sibs member Steve coming back in to Shoreham and helped each other up the low tide beach. Good to meet you Steve thanks for the help, look forward to meeting again.

I will post a few photos. The mentioning sea mist probably sounds too risky to launch but we did have a good area of vision at worst times and was clearing. Im all about safety first and consulted the RNLI officer who came out of the Shoreham RNLI building next to the natural slipway. There were a lot of sibs going out that day.

Nice one acidcloud and glad you managed to get out on the water to catch a few fish :mrgreen:
Yeah a few others reported that the mist along the south coast closed in really fast during the day in various locations ..... not good if you're a long way out :no
I must get down to that area again, I haven't boated there since my teens and that's 40+ years ago :shame
Thanks for sharing :TY
:cheers

Ya cheeky feckers :Boxsmile
Mind you you're both old enough to remember the Brighton Pier fires in 2003 when the Pavillion was set on fire in March and the Concert Hall in May of that year :finger
