Dungeness, The English Channel, Kent


Afternoon All,

Just arrived back home after a lovely night out. First off thanks Charlie for taking me and Sammy Boy to the coast.

Thoroughly enjoyed the trip, certainly be visiting again, despite catching nothing big, or spectacular. Called fishing for a reason, not always about the catching. Was just glad to be out of the big smoke. Both caught loads of these annoying dogfish, and whiting. No bass unfortunately for anyone spoke to on the beach.
please follow LINK exclusive pictures, videos regular updates
An added bonus though for Charlie a nice first ever catch a Dover Sole, kindly gave, a nice fish supper tonight, regarded as The Rolls Royce of fish meat, according to Gordon Ramsey.
Mmm Yesssss the verdict, tasted great πŸ‘πŸ˜ŽπŸŽ£
Time for a nice bath, cup of tea, a few hours shut eye Zzz Zzz
Just getting dark on arrival, looking forward to a good night's fishing πŸ‘πŸ˜ŽπŸŽ£

Evening All,

Just arrived for a spot of night fishing in Dungeness, English County Of Kent.
Unfortunately plans to fish The City Of Brighton and Hove, English County Of Sussex was scrapped last minute due to no fresh bait lug and rag available en route. Got a phone call from Charlie at work panicking unable to get fresh bait. Phoned a few shops out of stock, ended up cycling 12 miles round trip to Anglers Direct in Crayford. As Charlie said deserve a nice bass for the effort.
Mind you on opening the supposedly 4 Wraps of lugworm ordered, was in fact 2 ragworm, and 2 lugworm. Very small to say the least, which we put down to bait being what let us down despite catching plenty of fish, bigger lugworm not tiny rags was the order of the day. Next time we shall come better prepared. 
Baits in all set ready to roll πŸ‘πŸ˜ŽπŸŽ£
First catch Charlie is into a small doggy...
The times they are a changing. The new modern day era has seen an end to the job of 'Lighthouse Keeper. The old lighthouse still exists, but long since replaced with digital, computer unmanned light houses. 
Big Baits! Big Fish! Not always the case. On The Squid.. but still catching them damn doggies!!! 
Had a small whiting hardly worth a picture. Charlie back into another small dogfish
Nice one Charlie doggie and a Dover Sole
an interesting place to visit
Bait lugworm, ragworm, and squid. 
Dover Sole, flip side
Good Morning All, the tide is high and the sun is rising. Sammy Boy enjoying his time by the seaside.
Pestesticles, shut up!

In the bad books! New surroundings, different people. He has been to the seaside before, however not in the dark. A pest today, not doing as he's told. Even scoffing my ham and cheese for sandwiches. 
In the meantime Charlie is sleeping
Whilst his rigs are doing the business... Wake up Charlie
Mad to think Charlie has only been sea fishing a short while. He has taken to it like a duck on water. Only 27yrs of age has seen more big fish on the bank coarse fishing, and travelled more places and countries than most Anglers could only dream.
Blimey! Check out the new fishing rods, could only dream of buying. Keen as mustard πŸ‘πŸ˜ŽπŸŽ£
In the meantime my old rods and Reels are giving up the ghost. Need to start investing more cash on sea gear. 
"Arrrrrrrr broken rod tip not a happy bunny"
All the gear, and lots of idea, lot's of fish today. Years of Coarse Angling has been of real benefit, watching countless YouTube videos. All self taught sea fishing. Top Angling mate. Could say Green with envy lol πŸ‘πŸ˜‚πŸŽ£
Dogfish curl up like this it's a defensive mechanism referred to as 'balling'
Charlie must have been shattered after a hard week at work. Must have crashed out for a good 4 hours. Wake up! Your missing high tide. 
Had my fair share now of doggy's and loads of whiting.
Wake Up! You got a bite on Charlie
Charlie did eventually wake up, not helped by Sammy Boy jumping on him πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚ All jokes aside sorry mate was a pest, not normally so naughty.
Damn Dog! Sam leave the man alone for crying out loud! You don't know where he's been πŸ‘πŸ€£πŸŽ£
