Byline: SHORE sport continues Sam Harris

SHORE sport continues to be poor. There have been odd small codling 1lb to 11/2lb from rock edge marks from Newbiggin northwards.

The majority of the sport has been with flounders and dabs from the beaches at Alnmouth, Druridge, Warkworth and Cresswell. Amble Pier is still producing flounders with fish and worm baits working best for these species. There are still odd small codling coming in from the beaches at night, but there has not been anything of notable size taken.

The River Tyne is still giving plenty of small codling and flounders and, from the Lower Tyne there have also been Whiting taken. South Shields Pier has been generally quiet. Roker Pier, on the other hand, is still giving Whiting especially at night. The River Wear has produced mainly Flounders and a few Whiting.

The Sapphire, which runs out of Sunderland, fished well offshore in clear water and found that it was worth the trip, landing cod to 6lb, ling to 5lb and an excellent pollack of 16lb 5oz taken by James Rodden from Cramlington. James took his fish on a jelly eel.
