Sea Fishing: A nice window of opportunity when it gets warmer

The weather has held sway over the region's beaches with many unfishable for days on end.

There were a few codling along Lowestoft north beach in the run up to these easterlies, and I'm sure there will be a few more out too once the seas ease a bit.

A few hardy souls have braved the weather and I've seen and spoken to people about reports from Weybourne, Cromer and Trimingham, nothing much to report aside a few rockling and scorpions.

The east Norfolk beaches have been all but unfishable with white water as far as the eye can see, though you'd have to fancy a few feeding fish once the sea is fishable.

Below Lowestoft and there are still a few small whiting and immature codling from Aldeburgh and Orford.

By now we are usually seeing a few dogfish and perhaps some school bass, though I think the unseasonably cold four degress sea temperature might be holding things back a bit.

It can only be a matter of time before sport does pick up, and with winds poised to turn northeast through the week and keep the swell and rough seas above Yarmouth, it may be that there's a window of opportunity along Lowestoft north, Aldeburgh and Orford.
