Sea Fishing From The Beach – How Light Can You Go!

For this latest episode we took the camera’s down to Kessingland on the Suffolk coast, to try and catch a few fish from the beach.

Now it’s no secret that the winter fishing around our coast line has been very poor so far this season, the codling have virtually been non-existent and anglers have been relying on the whiting to provide a bit of sport.

Now don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against the Whiting, but I like to try and catch something that grows a little bigger and at least pulls back.

Fishing for these smaller species isn’t much fun on heavy beach tackle, in the same way that catching small roach and dace on carp rods wouldn’t be…

BUT, it got me thinking, catching small roach and dace on light tackle is pretty fun…

SO if we wanted to have a bit of fun catching Whiting, could we step down our tackle?

In-fact, exactly how light could we go?! Carp rods, avon rods, quiver tip rods?!

To find out exactly how we got on watch this latest instalment, from the waters edge.

As usual we hope you enjoy it and any feedback is always much appreciated.

    Hi Chris, another great video. A quick question if you don't mind, whats your general set up when fishing for codling, smooth hound, bass etc. I know you said you tend to use the pulley rig a lot, but what about line and shock leader? Is mono or braid better for a mainline? Cheers Drew.

    Loved it, thanks. I use a carp rod fairly often when I beach fish. It's given me an idea to try other lighter rods too.

    Definitely a lot more interesting than using a big thick beach caster to catch tiny flat fish. If you didn't have all the snags and tide to contend with than a standard carp rod loaded with 12 lbs line would be quite adequate for most forms of shore fishing. After all, carp anglers catch much larger fish than sea anglers most of the time and their gear is a quarter of the weight

    Kin hell, remembered why I stopped sea fishing, its shite! 3oz leads and 20lb line on a broom handle 2/0 hook to catch 9oz fucking whiting lol! To get "sport" from the fish lol! I had lighter gear for my 42lb carp! Give it up lads 🙂 ps this guy is top, good vid, but seriously go do some proper fishing, uk shore angling these days is painful, even painful to watch! Day ticket! A tenner! Go find some pike ffs.

    Very mild winter is what preventing the fish from venturing inwards. No rough seas, and lack of food getting smashed up and getting more food from further out. That could be the reason. Well I'm not gone this year too smooth the water and warm and getting nothing apart from a crab.

    In the Netherlands we fish a lot with quiver tip rods on the beach. A lot of anglers fish with even lighter rods! It is a lot of fun!
