Not really a catch report.

Because I didn’t catch anything. And it’s no surprise really with the amount of bait fish in the area. This isnt a great photo, but shows the concentration of sand eels, this lot got bigger as the depth of the water got deeper.

Taken from Swanage pier on Saturday.

There seems to be plenty of sandeel around at present. We were at Hayling yesterday and we saw lots of large shoals of sandeel in the shallows all along the shoreline of the East Winner.

Was the water clarity at Swanage really as murky as your pic suggests?

That's why I asked Fisty for clarification. It certainly looks murky compared to the water at Hayling yesterday.

We usually have to go about 5 miles out to see water that clean lol

I spent my early childhood visiting relatives who lived in Deal on the SE Kent coast, where the water looks like chocolate soup. I thought all sea water looked like that until I got into salt water lure fishing in my twenties. Felt like Pompey was tropical 🤣

Pretty much. Unhooking used bumwad instead of weed put the location into sharp perspective! 🤣
