I've yet to hear of any good catches at Holiwell Point lately, has anyone caught any skate yet ?

Has anybody got an opion on whether the first three hours or the last three hours of the flood - which is best at Holiwell Pint ?

Hi beehive,

We don't seem to get many reports for Holiwell or the Crouch on here which is a shame......

In regards to which state of the tide......sorry i cant help you there either lol. Hopefully someone who knows the area better will shed some light on your question.

Cheers macer :D

Tks all,

Suppose we should all keep trying, and when scate in will report.

Tim/Snagger - On River Crouch Nr Estuary entrance. You have to go to the end of March Road, Burnham on Crouch, a right turn into farm road until you can go no further. A farhouse on right - in front a gate. If no key for gate its a 10 min walk to seawall (but a key can be obtained at a price from landowner).

Well I went Sat. night, for first 3 hours of flood. Fairly quiet, 1 doggie and missed a stonking bite - not sure what it was.

Hi Beehive, Can you tell me where you caught the Doggie? I normally fish near the Tall in land Pill Box but never caught a Doggie. I normally use lug and Mackey

Hi Sea Panda,

I was about halfway between the and left of the track in (where steps up to top of seawall) and the first pillbox on sea wall. The doggie was at long range (which for me is about 60-70 yards) on a pully rig and a fair sized piece of squid, the big bite was on rag about 30 yards out.

Hiya..... I had a couple of eels out of the Crouch yesterday, about an hour before HW and I was near the old Crane (Rice & Coles) Boatyard.

Both were about 12"-18" long and about as thick as a broom handle. Hardly a spectacular catch, but a catch neverless.

The day before I was sippin' a beer on the White Harte patio that's attached to the seawall, it was a calm day, hot day and their were numerous fish breaking the waters surface (not like mullet).
