What fixed spool reel

Hi guys
I hope you are all well. I was thinking it was time to replace my old Daiwa opus 5500 reels and I was looking for some suggestions. I don’t really want to spend any more than a £100 each on them.
Thanks
Phil

Selsey east beach

Hi guys I had a go at east beach last night. I fish until an hour before high tide. I was hopping to stay longer but my young son was getting tired. Using sand eel, squid and rag worm for bait. I managed a silver eel, small conger of around 1.5ib and a couple of black bream around 10cm. I think the ...

Re: Keeping bait alive.

I’ve never had much luck keeping them alive for more that 24hrs in the fridge. I usually have them in a traditional coarse fishing bait box.

Thanks

Re: Sole

Hi Eccles
What sort of rigs do you use. I’ve been reading a few blogs that suggest making sure your bait doesn’t move around. The use of extra weights on the snoods to keep them anchored. I was wondering what your experience was.
Thanks

Sorry it’s been so long

Hi guys
Sorry I’ve not been around for a long time. I’ve not been fishing for around 18 months either.
I’m off down to the whitterings for a few weeks soon, so I’ll keep you all updated.
Hopefully I’ll remember what to do.

Thanks

Hi Pete
I was using a wishbone rig on one rod with size 2 hooks a bling. On the other I used a Pennel pully rig size one hook with no bling. It was the pully rig that caught the plaice.

Chesil beach (Abbottsbury)

Hi guys
I fished chesil beach at Abbottsbury for plaice last Sunday. We fished the whole tide in from 12:00 to 8:00. Unfortunately I didn't catch my mate had a dab around 10ozs. We were using rag and squid bait.
It was a lovely day though

Best wishes
Phil
