congrats on 1 million views

LeeboProductions says:

Interesting to note that it’s now illegal to use fresh or live slipper limpets as bait. Stupid law if you ask me.

Barry Roberts says:

Thanks so much for the Totally Awesome tips Graeme, much appreciated. My pal & I are off to Cornwall in early March & while we know about river & lake fishing, or should I say, we like to think we know, beach fishing is out of our comfort zone.We’ll follow your tips & let you know how we get on. Will 15ib main line & a 40lb leader do the job fishing from Loe Bar, which is mostly sand ?
Thanks again & please keep up the good work.

Gina Entwistle says:

You’re amazing!
I’ve learnt so much, thank you!!

Lee Webb says:

Hi, We recently started fishing at Dungeness, Kent, with minimal experience. So far only catching 2 small bass out of 5 visits. Fairly often it is rough down there and are line just drifts off and come to shore to soon, we were using a 6oz breaker. Our rods to go up to a 8oz casting weight, so what would you recommend for a rig and lead setup?. Any Help would be great. Thanks

cobberwebb says:

Great video and decided to go out limpet collecting on Weymouth beach earlier. However, I’ve just read an official notice stating the use of live or fresh slipper limpet for bait is now illegal. I’m salt curing them and hopefully they will do the job.
“The slipper limpet is a marine mollusc and is a non-native species in the UK. They can starve and smother native shellfish and compete for food and space with oysters. Damage to shellfish by slipper limpets can affect the ability of fishermen to sell their catch, particularly oysters mussels and scallops. The release of slipper limpets to the sea is an offence and must be avoided in order to protect shellfish beds that are currently free of this species. This includes the use of live or fresh slipper limpets as an angling bait, or disposal at sea, which may allow the escape of eggs and larvae into the marine environment.”

vasyasol says:

where do you get worms like that ? i went sea fishing first time and bough 10 of this frozen for £4….total rip off


nice vid guys, I really like them.
can I ask you something?
Is is legal to fish from any beach within UK? lets say I go to south-end-on-sea and pull out my tackle and start fishing!
is it ok? do I need any license? any fish can be taken home?
thanks a lot, and keep up the good work.

Bruno James Lucarelli says:

Bishbashboshboshbosh says:

Over a million views?!!!!!!!!!!!!

VulfII says:

Watched the hole shooting match, I know here we’re looking at makerel on a float off the rocks but i’m dubious about using good kit beach casting. It’s a given a 300 yard cast is a good cast. the one you want. Of the kelp/seaweed and onto the shelf you want. I kno diferent types of dogfish will come in at low ebb like spurdogs, flatfish are always there etc, but do you recon a regular UK cast will get much else at a beginning cast? Trying to get back into it.

jhon doe says:

i cast with 7M rod to really ge out to the sandbar trougha . i usually use 7 oz waight to catch sharks. it came from guy named colman

Christopher Lilley says:

Your videos have been a great help to me. I’m new at this, so new infact, I haven’t even gone fishing yet. As I will be on my own I have no one to ask your videos are just like having a mate who can help you when you need it.

J73 G says:

Any jobs going at ta office ?

tyh lame says:

How do i prevent my line or hook to get stuck in rocks or hook up seaweed?

HB Fishing&football says:

Would squid also be a good bait
