Hi Just got in from fishing channel edge, dogs and dogs and dogs and a pout, oh and a dogfish
.Tried the sturbridge on the way in, strong west going tide, two other boats drifting and we all had fish, I had 3 to 7lbs and kept one. All mine on live king rag. So definatley worth a try drifting the
inside edge of the bank, the fish took just before the standing waves.

Thanks for the heads up. Out tomorrow so may give it a go. On the 'channel edge' are you talking out by the nab or closer in? May plan ws to try out there first.
Good catch in case.

Hugh, if  you use a 10 to 20gm spinning rod with say 20lb braid to a link swivel then a meter of 30lb mono with a 1oz ball lead  and bead on it then another swivel, a 2meter hook length of 15lb
floro to a 1/0 short shank hook, you'd be good to go. Just nick the hook into the head of the rag or
live sandeel , bump it along so you are just off the bottom and DONT strike, just let it swim off and reel in when you feel the weight of the fish. When you get snagged not if, the hook lenght will snap first. Best of luck

Has anyone tried large Isomes ragworm for bass? In theory it should work the same way fished as above.

I have tried them on the sturbridge with no joy, but they worked on the overfalls, not as
good as real rag, the best plastics I've found are fiiish black minnow 90mm and the berkley 
gotam shad. fish the gotams in 3s on short snoods like feathers.
