New to sea fishing - bite indication

Recommended Posts

Went out today for a couple of hours off the rocks near where I live. Had what I thought were quite a few bites - the rod tip would tremble, then tap over a few times, but I could not seem to connect on striking. I was using a 3oz weight with two hooks, with ragworm on the hook.


Any idea why the bites were either just nibbles or why I might not have been connecting?

It was small fish, and I know that cos I am now landing them successfully. Having said that, they are all v small pollock (or whiting) and too small to keep. Assuming there are some bigger ones around, how to attract bigger fish from a shoal?
