Fish holding features slot into two groups. Features that offer protection from both tidal pressure and predators. Wrecks reefs etc fall into this section. The other section are features that offer a food supply to fish. Again features from the first section will hold bait fish which in turn attract...

If you want to be really clever. A section of plastic soil downpipe with one end sealed with a cap and the other end fitted with a screw top fitting fitted to the roof bars allows all rods no matter how fragile to be transported safely and allows full passenger space within the car. Used this system...

Try float fishing using thin strips of Mackerel bait on small hooks, about size 4 to 2. Great fun, mini Marlin fishing.

The very spot you mentioned in your post produced a Bass of about a couple of pounds to a sea angling virgin just last week. A more productive area would be the edges of half moon bay. Ledgered baits produce Plaice and Bass, the latter can also be captured on slim silver spoon type lures.

The best method for signal strength, is bond the transducer directly to the inside of the hull after smoothing both hull and transducer face with sandpaper. Apply a good blob of sea water proof adhesive/sealant. I use sikaflex. The important bit is to apply a smooth consistant flow of adhesive to en...

Count yourself very, very fortunate. You will be fishing with an excellent skipper and angler. I wouldn't be so forward as to suggest he's the UK's best. But as the late great Brian Clough said, "He's in the top one!"

I can only reply from my own experience. I'm a boat angler and have caught the occasional Catfish when out on my small boat offshore from Whitby. They have been captured on baited pirks in water in excess of 200 feet.

Yes I've caught a few off Whitby in past years. It's a salt water Catfish, also known as Wolfish. The fish cosists of a big ugly head with some of the most formidable teath and jaw power you're likely to see in any fish.
