Hi all. New to forum and first post ! Looking for some advice and local knowledge . I moved to Brid beginning of the year and bought a sheltie 535. Spent the summer doing a lot of engine and boat repairs and a little bit of boat fishing!!! Wrapping up the boat for winter and looking to do shore fishing for the winter. Problem ? No experience of shore/beach fishing, no suitable rod or reel and limited local knowledge. Planning to go out with some of the lads from work who fish Hornsea down to Hull for some experience. But looking to fish Brid to Whitby too so any suggestions for good spots to start ? Regarding rod and reel : Time to part with some cash. Have been looking at the longer rods 15/16 ft with fixed spool reel. Hoping that will get me casting reasonable distance reasonably quickly. Looking Greys triplex or century carbon metal BB. Reel, Ihave got a penn battle 8000 not sure if that will match up or have been suggested diawa 6000t or shimano super ultegra. Would welcome any comments ,suggestions or if anyone has ,or knows anyone who is looking to sell any decent rods/reels that might suit ? Cheers Justin.
