Billy, great subject as we will all be out there soon. March only three weeks away and can't wait to get fishing, still have Chrismas presents to get wet. You mentioned drift fishing for plaice, this really appeals to me as anchor work is difficult on your own. Having stated that the only fish I have caught on the drift is bream and mackrell. Would love to know the best methods for drift fishing for plaice. Babbling on again sorry guys

short traces, sub 10 inches. black and green beads and bling. single size 1 hook couple of rag and a strip of squid to act as a flag. keep your reel in freespool but thumb on so when you feel a bite let out line count to 10, dont strike just reel in. use a heavy watch lead that kicks up abit of sand etc, as they are site feeders and will act on disturbance.

most of my plaice fishing has been done on the skerries off dartmouth where most peeps drift along with long flowing traces a strip of squid and a ragworm we had nine different species one day on the bank using flowing traces

the spreaders seem popular this way too, perhaps the disturbance thing, but have seen loads anchored so the rig would just sit there
