By March the fishing improved with a super run of plaice from most marks to 3lbs, Cambridge road in Eastbourne being the hot spot. This carried on through April and had many occasional anglers getting their rods out to try their luck. Pin whiting were still around unfortunately. The Fish4Kids fished in April was a full house and a great success. Well done to Steve Frost and his many helpers from the local angling clubs who gave the kids such a good day. Hopefully we will see some of them becoming regulars in the years to come.
May was a windy month but this meant it brought in bass, codling, flounders and eels. This is very late for codling to be caught off our beaches. Fred Wassell beached a 5lb 10oz bass during an over 50’s match at White Horses. The first of the smooth hounds arrived but were very small as the tiny whiting that continued to hang around.
