I am fairly new to fishing and I was wondering if high or low tide is the best time for fishing.
I have had virtually no success until recently (last week) when I caught two sea trout to spinners in Malahide estuary.
Also wondering if anyone was interested in meeting up for a spot of fishing. 8)

I'm no expert but I understand as a genral rule it's 2hrs either side of high water, you can find the tides here:

You don't happen to know the chap who left the wrappers from newly purchased lures on the estuary shore last week? - "Swords
Hardware" was on the price label...

sounds like a case for miss marple !!! :shock:
seriously, what can you do? we all know that you should leave the place as you find it,
that's standard and I agree. some degenerates just don't treat the area as they should :evil:

I caught the Sea Trout 3 hours after high tide. If you go down past the Swords waste water plant, under the new bridge and drive down as far as you can, there is a slipway outside a large house. This is the spot No idea about the discarded wrappers. Unfortunately it takes all sorts.

what type of lures were successful? - colour, size etc.

I was using ordinary Toby type plain silver spoons.
Best of luck

hay murch are you still interested in someone to go fishing with. i just put a post up myself asking the same thing. the people i fish with were never really that interested and the only one that was now works abroad. i'll be doing alot of fishing over the next couple of months. 3 or 4 days a week and one day were i go bait digging up near sutton across from the dingy club. anyway give us a shout either way. i usually fish anywhere between carlingford all the way down to wexford. i just pick a spot and go.
