Plaice Fishing Advice From Steve Ace
Now heading towards Easter and the last of the winter weather behind us (hopefully). Thoughts turn to our spring summer species, one of which my favourite the plaice. Successful pursuit of this tastiest of flatties does however require the right weather and water conditions. A spell of settled conditions and bright sunshine the best ingredients for success.
Venues to try around Devon, Dorset and South Hampshire. The big favourite Chesil encompassing Burton Bradstock, Cogden, Bexington, and Abbotsbury. Plaice will show further east towards the ferry bridge end but more consistently later in the summer. Other beaches of note include nearby Seatown, Branscome, Seaton, Budleigh, Slapton, Beesands, and East Portlemouth. All of which can produce great bags when on song. Just keep your ear to the ground. Size of tides can be an issue, but much depends on the venue. Personally, I feel water clarity is the overriding factor. Regards bait
