Sussex is a bit off my patch, but the principles are the same all over the coast. Best thing is to go down to the beach and talk to the anglers, they wont give their secrets away but should be able to point you in the right direction! If you are after bass dawn and dusk are best when they come in real close, so big baits close in work a treat, river mouths and rocky inlets also hold them

Well you could write a book on that! The best bet is what they feed on locally, but peeler crab, squid and sandeels work well, or try your hand at fly fishing for them, but dont ask me I'm rubbish!!
