Still a load of sprat in the river

Post by Southender »

Went to Gilsons (Southend) to get some squid for the weekend. They are still catching a load of sprat. So does anybody have any reports of codling fairley locally. Would have gone to Dover but its a bit far as I have a long drive on the m25 Sunday. South Fambridge, has anyone fished Bamburgers lately, or Burnham, or would I do better fishing Clacton pier or Walton pier.
Im at a loose end.

The sprats are still the first choice for the codling at the moment. Very quiet at Holehaven.
