Sea Fishing: Quieter time for anglers on the region’s beaches

As the holiday season gets into full swing, the region’s beaches have been a little quieter.

The beaches in neighbouring Lincolnshire are still producing good numbers of smoothounds though the 20lb+ fish seem to have had their litters and headed offshore, there still seem to be some nice fish up to double figures though and plenty of them.

I would still expect some of these same fish to show on the wash beaches though I haven’t seen or heard any reports from there; if you have a report for the area please email me on ianholmes1964@madasafish.com.

The shingle in the north has been slow, there is plenty of bait fish in the water though there seems to be few bass chasing them, some school bass have shown to both plug anglers and those fishing baits.

The beaches below Sheringham and down to Sea Palling have been busy with holiday makers, evening tides have produced school bass and flats.

Below Sea Palling down to Hopton and there have been a few hounds though they are generally smaller than the beasts off the Lincs beaches, they are still excellent sport.

Lowestoft has produced some nice sole as has Southwold and Aldeburgh, I note that there are few slips in the reports and most are reasonable fish 30cm and upwards.

Building tides with evening high waters in the south of the patch should keep sole on the menu below Lowestoft as long as the wind doesn’t get up too much. In the north there should be some mackerel about with winds off the land and dusk high waters and there should be chances of bass to the plug too.
