    In my quest to become a better sea angler Iíve decided to really try and practice my beach casting. Iím getting anywhere between 70 Ė 100 yards, but apparently practice makes perfect. It would appear that I have A LOT yet to do, and will suffer the trials and tribulations until I finally reach my target of successfully and consistently hitting 150+ yards. Iíve read a lot, spoken to a fair few big casters and been told, the only way you get better is by getting out there. So thatís my aim! In the meantime hereís where youíll find me having a bash and making a boob of myself. Any advice, hints, tips are greatly appreciated - http://www.paulgoesfishing.com/category/casting/

    Itís been a few weeks since Iíve been able to get out there and wet a line. Ok, Iíve been over to the field to practice casting, but that isnít fishing. So, after not going Friday night, I managed to grab a few hours Sunday morning with the old man. The conditions werenít great, the blazing sun meant almost everyone wanted to top up their tan, but it was still nice to be out. Still a lot to learn about this sea fishing malarkey Ė Have a read of the full report here - http://www.paulgoesfishing.com/

    After reading the fishing reports this past weekend I can only say I feel quite smug knowing I hadnít wasted my bait casting out into the clear blue sea. Iíd spoken to a couple of tackle shops. One regurgitated the same info he gave me a few weeks ago - So I didnít listen; the others gave similar advice, that going would be tough, with little water movement, bad tides, bright sunshine and the current lunar cycle fishing etc. It would have been hard at the very least. So I decided to head out and work casting on my technique. Slowly getting there, though line burn stings! Have a read here - http://www.paulgoesfishing.com/

    The return of the sun meant crystal clear water, so Friday night I headed out to a new beach in the way of Cogden. Although the a hill down to the beach, this walk is so much easier than others on Chesil as it is either tarmacked or a grassed part of the South West coastal path. Be careful though, as you can end up walking a long way to find access to the beach, and end up being a right mess before you even start fishing. As a lot of people are experiencing on Chesil, it was very hard going with A LOT of weed about, followed by crabs, crabs and more crabs. You can have a read here - http://www.paulgoesfishing.com/
