|MABLETHORPE, is a beach resort on the East coast of England. The beach is a long stretch of clean sands with some great fishing. The clean and flat ground is excellent for Flounder and the catch here is often flatfish. However, Smoothounds are also a regular visitor to the beach and offer great sport and exciting fishing. Both the Smoothounds and the summer Bass can be found at a distance of only 30 - 40 metres or so and a cast of this length can bring you some large fish. |
Other species to be found here are Eels, Dabs, Sole (late summer and mainly at night) and both Codling and Whiting come close in at the end of the year (October onwards).
Best baits would be crab without a doubt! Crab is the best for Smoothounds and Flounder although Lugworm and Ragworm are also good especially for Bass and for enhancing the appeal of a spoon rig for the Flatties.
The tackle should be light and the ideal rig would be a 2 or 3 boom paternoster. Use 12lb mono line as the main body of your rig with 15lb to 20lb mono hook lengths ending in a Kamasan Aberdeen or Mustad 3261BLN Aberdeen for worm baits. A Cox and Rawle Crab Hook or the popular wide gape circle hooks are well suited for crab baits. You'll also obviously need a grip lead to keep anchored against the surf!
