Shore fishing in Dorset.

Recommended Posts

Well, my week in Cornwall over Easter was obviously cancelled 😔 Had the genius idea today of a road trip with a couple of mates at the end of the summer (hopefully we will have been set free by then), set off Friday afternoon and fish over the weekend and sleep in the truck or bring a tent.  Can anyone reccomend somewhere, looking at Dorset as it's a bit closer, somewhere like Kimmeridge where we can find a few species on a variety of tackle.

Thanks

Ha how very dare you! Feel free, I can't promise we can fit you in the truck but more than welcome to come for some beer and watching me trying to catch my first bass after about 300 years of trying

Thanks, I'll add it to the list. Looking for somewhere we can do some spinning and throw some plastic about too.

Kimmerige bay, same tides as Lulworth cove, theres quite a lot of rocks on my map, where will you get bait? if there is a westerly gale all the better,

Be careful along most of chesil, most places along there don't allow vans overnight and will fine you. Should be fine in a truck or tent tho. 

Fished Kimmeridge a few years ago, blanked on the bottom and lost a bit of gear as I wasn't set up right but looked outstanding for lures. Also spearfished Lulworth and seen some of the biggest wrasse I've seen. 5lb+. 

On portland, if you park near rufus Castle and walk down to church ope cove, lots of decent fishing down there as its a bit of a trek. Nice rocky mark. Could also hire a beach cabin as a few down there to hire, ideal for beers and fishing. On a side note, it's lovely as everytime I go down there, lovely ladies just seen to whip their tops off. Don't know where to look 👍

If you fish the area around Chisel beach you can get all your baits from the Angling Centre in West Bay, also try fishing West Bexington beach, there’s a car park on the beach, also look at Eype beach there’s a camping site and parking, you will find plenty of marks along that coastline, just Google Dorset fishing marks.

Eype is a pain to get to but what a great shout. As said camping right on the cliff and a pub up the road. I go to eype just to swim and take the boy out. West Bay only a few minutes walk away on the beach too. Generally quiet compared to the rest of chesil but easily just as nice.

Portlands a bit of a weird one for me. Every time I go with the misses it rains, everytime I go with my mate it's roasting. Which is nice as we can both look about then without the other half wanting to murder us 😂
