Last summer I took up shore fishing, mostly from a local pier on the Solway Firth. I have been pleasantly surprised at the range of species that I have had. It as been a learning curve as my previous attempts in the sea have been confined largely to dabbles on holidays.

 

I have been going to the pier as it is easy to park up and walk a short distance to fish, my mobility isn't getting any better. However what I have found to be a bit of a bind is the weather, or more specifically the wind direction. Some of the locals insist that it is a waste of time to fish in an Easterly wind, I have looked around online and as so often happens found mixed advice on this. This last week for example the tides were up at good convenient times for me but we have had continuous Easterly winds. I have tried it with the wind in that direction and although have caught it has been slow.with few fish. What do you experienced shore people think?

east wind, waste of time, even in deep water, with the east wind is high pressure and the fish appear to sense that as they go off the feed. We have  been 20 mile out in summer, wind changes to the east and they again, go off the feed.


 Free to choose apart from the ones where the trust poked their nose in. Common eel. tope. Bass and sea bream. All restricted.

 
New for 2016 TAT are the main instigators for the demise of the u k bass charter boat industry, where they went screaming off to parliament and for the first time assisting so called angling gurus set up bass take bans with the e u using rubbish exaggerated info collected by ices from anglers, they must be very proud.

Upgrade, the door has been closed with regards to anglers being linked to the e u superstate and the failed c f p. So TAT will no longer need to pay monies to the EAA anymore as that org is no longer relevant to the u k . Goodbye to the europeon anglers alliance and pathetic restrictions from the e u.

Angling is better than politics, ban politics from angling.
 
Consumer of bass. where is the evidence that the u k bass stock need angling trust protection. Why won't you work with your peers instead of castigating them. They have the answer.

Recipie's for mullet stew more than welcomed.
 
Angling sanitation trust and kent and sussex sea anglers org delete's and blocks rsa's alternative opinion on their face book site. Although they claim to rep all.
 
new for 2014. where is the evidence that the south coast bream stock need the angling trust? Your campaign has no evidence. Why won't you work with your peers, the inshore under tens? As opposed to alienating them? Angling trust failed big time re bait digging, even fish legal attempted to intervene and failed, all for what, nothing.
 
Looks like the sea angling reps have been coerced by the ifca's to compose sea angling strategy's that the ifca's at some stage will look at drafting into legislation to manage the rsa, because  they like wasting tax payers money. That's without asking the rsa btw. You know who you are..

Hi Emma !!

 

Long Time - welcome

 

There's a little ditty that goes something like "winds in the East, catch the least, winds in the West, catch the best".

 

There must be something to it for it has been around a LONG time.  Personally, I used to go when I could go.  As for any personal preference regarding wind, I like it in my face.  Other than that - I just went. fishin'.

Thanks for that.

Hiya thanks for the welcome, Yes I heard that one too. I must admit to not really giving much consideration to wind direction when it came to freshwater fishing (perhaps I should have?). I shall still have a go this week, but on the lake not the sea. Next Tuesday looks ok for the sea again, westerly/south westerlies and the tide up at a decent time.

In Scotland it's "A wind from the east fish bite least, wind from the west fish bite best"

The problem isn't what people don't know, it's what they know that just ain't so.

Where I fish is usually affected by the SE trade winds (central coastal Queensland) and it can be very unrewarding. However, as the full moon period is approaching, the fishing will pick op. Always have a better haul from full moon to 4 days after.
