A Few Codling At last (Kingston Seymour)

Postby Black Rat » 17 Apr 2017, 19:06

Was down at the in-laws with the kids over the Easter holiday. Which meant i could fish an evening session from 20:00hrs to 23:00hrs at Kingston Seymour, located between Clevedon and Weston-Super-Mare. The tide to an age before it came in far enough before it was possible to fish as i am not a great at casting. Which was not helped with a stiff onshore breeze.

Glorious Bristol Channel Mud as far as the eye can see.

Bait used was rag worm, squid and sand eel on running ledger rigs. It was dead until high tide when i had a few bites but unable to hook the fish.

Was answering a text from the wife when i noticed i had a slack line bit so dropped the phone and landed my first fish.

Missed a few more bits then landed this on on another slack line bit.

All fish caught on rag worm.

Nice session for you, I have relatives who live down that way but I never really know anywhere to fish. Will definitely give it a go at Kingston Seymour. It looks like it might fish better on a big tide but I am only speculating. :clap:

The tide was 11.69m high on that evening, the water came up to the sea wall in front of me, but i got my timings wrong and was there about and hour and a half to soon . It is advised not to fish on a tide greater than 12.50m+ as it comes over the the sea wall onto the bank which is behind my rods. I have fished it on a 13.50m tide but that was on a flat still day. Would not advise in rough conditions.

Veals website details a few marks around that area.
