About the fishing on 'Sabre'
Fishing is usually up tide over rough ground and the many sand banks the Thames has to offer.
Special lure fishing trips for Bass can also be arranged.
Full instruction is available to first time Sea Fisherman at no extra cost of course!!
The main species of fish caught are:
Other species regularly caught include:
Whiting, Dog Fish, Pouting, Eels, Sole, Mackeral, Starry Smoothound, Flounder, Dabs and Plaice.
As the River Crouch is sheltered few trips are cancelled due to bad weather. There are usually some sheltered marks within the Crouch which fish well for Codling, Thornback Ray and Bass, so you can still fish for the day even if the wind blows.
