  1. Having Fresh bait

    I did exactly that a few years ago,my results were poor. now I often use salted Pilchards on 3 ganged hoods(great for flathead and tailor) i also get chicken thighs and remove the soft part and cut the remaining into bait size and add some garlic salt and freeze it,I have since caught my best bream on this bait and it’s very cheap. another cheap option buy some mullet at the local fish shop,fillet them and salt it with sea salt, put in fridge for a few days then remove the water the salt has drawn out and freeze the fillet. there is some good cheap options that will catch fish,just some preparation will get better results.

  7. First experience with braid

    I use braid then sinker then leader to hook,yes I tie the braid to swivel,I will try your method next time your help is appreciated thanks
  8. First experience with braid

    I understand what your saying,I think it tangles when casting the leader wraps the mainline,so your idea with a sinker on the leader helps keep them apart,I will give it a go next time I'm out, cheers

  12. Alvey reel/rod?

    Thanks Jewdreamer, I will take your advice and take my rod to the store to find a suitable Alvey,i think this will save me alot of money in the long term, i really enjoy beach fishing and i am keen to learn as much as i can. cheers Much appreciated
  13. Alvey reel/rod?

    Hi there I have a 11ft fibreglass surf rod that has quite a low mount for the reel and I was thinking it would work better with a small alvey rather than a spinning reel, im was wondering what the suitable measurement from reel mount to the first guide to be ok for alvey casting (my rod is 115cm mount-guide) it has a nice soft medium action for surf casting. i was doing some evening beach fishing and my sand spike fell over and drowned my Okuma spinning reel and the bearings have sand in them,I found a tackle store that can have it repaired but it's not cheap,hence why I think it's a good idea to get into Alvey reels also what model Avey(not expensive) has a functional drag for light/medium surf fishing. any assistance is appreciated
