another great vid, but thought you might of just mentioned that its polite not to cast when the boats are going in and out of the harbour, as have been a few incidents when idiots have cast and their leads and hooks have hit the boats……just luck no one has been injured….but keep up the good stuff….lots of useful advice, tips etc on both sea and course fishing from you and your son.

Dietmar L. says:

Best you tube fishing show in Europe cheers Graeme.

wanderer1 says:

If you are still in the area, give Blue Anchor a try, always good for dogfish at the very least – or if willing to ravel a bit further west, Bossington beach is also good.

Uwais Patel says:

Zack S says:

Hi guys, I’ve got a question for you. I’ve seen an old ‘drawing’ probably from an old fishing book that shows an angler fishing as normal, (from a slight height) but has slid a float rig down the main line. I’ve heard of a Trolley Rig before but was wondering if you’ve ever tried this method. The drawing suggests that it’s a good way of catching Garfish whilst targeting other species further down the water column. Kind regards, Karl in Swansea.

ECS Games says:

I was just wondering when you might next be doing an lrf video?

Cloutmaster 96 says:

These british shore fishing rigs are too complicated looking.

Hi Graeme,

Just a wee short message ref Scrabster. Ive found a great short video on you tube with one of your pals. Its Stealthcroft channel and Scrabster-Charter Boat Fishing. Your viewers may be interested.
Fantastic stuff Graeme. Been Sea fishing about 7 months now and so much to learn and so many places to visit. Can life get any better ? I doubt it.

Cheers Graeme.

Steve in Fife.

Super as per normal Graeme, I fished the Stone peir in Weymouth the other day I though I’d froze to death and all I caught was a pin Whiting and a Pouting and the biggest selection of crabs I’ve ever seen (4 differant species)

Jacob Greeņos says:

i love watching these landbased english shows.
Even though live in aus.
i was wondering where i could find a tripod like what was used in this episode
any websites ??

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Stevie D says:

Hi Graeme,
Great location. I may look into going there in the summer when i get some holidays. I would also love to go Porbeagle Shark fishing, top of Scotland.
I love my Pier fishing as ive said before. I find its great for learning. One thing i did learn 2 weeks ago was that i had too many rods on the go to control properly. 2 on Tripod, and 1 in my hands. Loads of bites all night on Pennel Rigs but they kept taking the Bait and not the hooks. Think 4/0 hooks were maybe too big. Bait was Dungeness Black Lug and also Squid.
Also it may help your viewers, i now buy my Bait online from Baits Direct ltd. Top quality stuff and the cheapest prices ive found online.
Anyway Graeme i will finish for now.
Best Wishes,
Steve in Fife.

Hi Graeme another awesome video from tafishing! One thing I am surprised at is that I have not seen you cover the ultimate beginners method the WHIP. I think you would enjoy a good whipping!! If you fancy covering this brill’ method I would be happy to show you the best swims on my local stretch of the Grand Union at Leighton Buzzard which is not to far from you. Your son Mike would love it to its full of perch. Tight lines
