Hello!

I usually fish in September on the river Thurne in Norfolk, from the garden of the cottage we hire.

It really the only time I get a whole weeks fishing.

However I have to find somewhere different for next year, I have found lots of cottages in Wroxham with quays for boats  and fishing, but they all appear to be within marinas.

I have no experience of marina fishing, is it any good?

What sort of species will I catch, I'm used to bream, roach, perch, lionheads etc.

Cheers,

Colin

First you'll have to check that fishing is allowed, many marinas ban it :(

 

Never fished one, so can't comment on how good they are, but on canals where boats are berthed, fish tend to congregate under them so casting close up to the boat is a skill well worth learning.

Bread should fish well - fish will be well acquainted as the boat peoples kids will feed ducks etc.

John,

It actually states fishing from the quay.

 

Other galley food scraps could be also prove useful. (bits of Burger, Sweet corn etc)

True, but its a brave man who would stop my grand-daughter fishing - She fished the (Broadland) marina whilst the rest of the family were still loading the boat, and had a two-pound eel first cast.

If fishing is not allowed, be assured it'll be well posted around the quay!!!

Like Brixham,       There are several notices saying the penalty for fishing in the harbour is "up to £1000"

 

Further along, there is a space next to the lifeboat station for lifeboatmen on shout to park their cars.

 

The penalty for unauthorised parking in this spot, possibly delaying the lifeboat launch and increasing the risk to those needing help ?

 

Just £50

 

Good to see the Brixham authorities have their priorities right   :thumbdown:

 These are the only ones ​I know of chesters. Just another 'crap' mongrel. 

https://en.wikipedia.../wiki/Lionhead_(goldfish)

 Thankfully, I never caught any in my trips to the broads, but it was some time ago, so I might be out of date.

 

 

 I will though, offer a small piece of advice to anyone fishing near moored boats. Make sure you avoid the mooring ropes when fishing, a lost hook in a rope, can easily be transferred to someone's hand when handling it. If you're fishing, it's just one of the hazards we face, but it shouldn't be so for anyone else. I've seen the damage several hooks can do to an unsuspecting hand that's passing a rope through it, it's like barbed wire. It's one of the reasons that fishing is banned in some areas where boats are moored.

 

John.


Angling is more than just catching fish, if it wasn't it would just be called 'catching'......... John
