Bristol Channel Shore March 2021



BRISTOL CHANNEL SHORE REPORT by Craig Butler

I hope you are all keeping safe and well and some of you have been able to wet a line. 

The past month has been very much a feast or famine for the anglers managing to get out. 

With travel restrictions still in place until the end of March anglers continue to fish locally to home. 

When the fishing has been good the infamous Bristol Channel spring codling run has been showing some good potential with 3-4lb fish making up  a good percentage of catches. 

-Good numbers of bass have also been making regular appearances which is good to see. This time of year normally throws up the bigger fish so it’s been encouraging to see 4-6lb fish showing up. 

The Ray fishing continues to be good with the spotted Ray numbers increasing at Minehead.

The month ahead should see the spring codling continue along with the rays and bass and with the prospects of fishing in the warm spring sunshine’s just makes it better. 

Good luck in the month ahead. 

Tightlines and happy hunting
