The codling started to show in the west of the county along the Shoreham and Brighton beaches with some anglers catching three or four in a session. In the last week there have been several caught on Langney point with the best recorded at around 6lbs.

A few codling were weighed in on Monday the 28th in the Nomads comp yet round in Pevensey Bay, despite conditions looking perfect, only whiting were caught. The soles have been few and far between but several gurnard and red mullet were caught early in the month. Mackerel have been in very short supply and it was a lucky angler who found a shoal in front of him this year. Some days I watched as numerous anglers fishing the beaches, all thrashing the water with feathers, produced nothing but a couple of undersized scad. With the big tides finishing off the month, at least there have been loads of lugworm around for anyone wanting to target the codling.
