For the waters around Brighton the year starts with good pollack fishing on the offshore wrecks in February and March. In April and May see the plaice arrive on the inshore banks. excellent bream fishing can be had on the reefs to the west of the Brighton.  Mackerel arrive in May and with them the inshore wrecking improves, with good catches of cod, pollack and conger eel. June to October also see good catches of bass and bream. In November the whiting arrive as the mackerel leave and the cod move in on the ground. To give an idea of sizes, in the last year we have caught cod to 28 lbs, bass to 16 lbs, pollack to 20 lbs, conger eels to 80 lbs, rays to 25 lbs, and bream and plaice to 5lb+
