Welcome to, the website of Baywater Anglers, a sea fishing club based in Totnes and Torbay. We are a family club committed to encouraging others into the sport of sea angling and helping those who are already involved. As you browse the site, you will find information on shore fishing, rigs, boat fishing, bait and other areas that tickle our fancy, such as the occasional sidestep into the world of fly fishing in saltwater - often referred to as 'saltwater rodding'. Each of the photographs at the side of the page opens up several articles on the species in question. Just click on either the picture or label to access them.

Bass are one of the most prized of the sea fishing species, being a handsome, silver fish that fights hard and is tasty to boot. It also responds well to light tackle, whether it be fishing from boat with light baitcasters or float-fishing from shore with a match rod or similar. This link will take you to articles on bass fishing from shore, bass fishing from boat, estuary fishing, fly fishing, sandeels and bassing at Lannacombe.

Link to sea fishing strategies for catching mackerel from boat or shore (includes fly fishing).
Garfish may not be everybody's cup of tea but catch them on light tackle and they may well surprise you. Personally, I think that they are one of the most sporting of the British sea fishing species and very much enjoy fishing for them using ultra light tackle. Click on the links to find out more about fishing for them from both boat and shore.
If mackerel grew to double figures, many British sea anglers would not bother to fish for anything else! These hard fighting sea fish are fun to catch, great as bait and respond to a variety of sea fishing techniques. Here we show you how with articles on shore fishing, fly fishing and boat fishing.
Pollack Link to information on the running leger, a deadly sea fishing rig
Pollack can be great fun for sea anglers, whether it be miles from the shore, drifting slowly over a wreck, or casting out from a rocky headland. Here we offer some advice on some of the most popular sea fishing strategies for these wonderful fish, including fishing for them from shore, boat and wreck fishing and fly fishing together with a peek at some of the most successful artificial lures.

Plaice may not be one of the most sporting sea fish but, given the right tackle, they can put up a game scrap. Baitcasters and light sea fishing rods especially will give them a superb chance to perform. Here we show you how with articles on the fish itself, ragworms, shore fishing, including tandem traces and finally boat fishing techniques, including the highly successful predator rig.
Useful Tackles
Link to tackle reviews and information on sea fishing tackle.
Pulley Rig
Wrasse are often one of the first species caught by sea anglers, hugging the rocks close to shore so that distance casting is rarely necessary. We look at several unusual sea fishing strategies, like pole fishing from the shore or using a variation of the flying collar rig from boat. Articles include fishing for wrasse from shore, fishing for them from boat, prawns and background information on the fish itself and, for those who like to experiment, pole fishing, including both methods and setting up a pole for use in the sea.

Tackle Zone is an area where we look at articles of sea fishing tackle that tickles our fancy. It includes reviews on tackle and a guide to some of the tackle shops in and around Torbay.
Running Leger
Link to information page on the Steamer Quay Competition Totnes, a catch and release competition organised by Baywater Anglers on behalf of the Totnes Carnival Committee. Entrance fee is just £2 and all entrance fees are donated to the Committee for distribution to local charities.
Cod are one of the angler's favourite fish, with the capture of a large specimen a red letter day in almost every angler's diary. In this section, we look at shore fishing for cod, wreck fishing for cod, uptide boatcasting and also a quick peek into its lifecycle. (The shore article also includes detailed images of how to rig up both an up and over leger and a pulley rig.)

As most of our fishing is done in Torbay, we thought that it might be useful to include a guide to some of the more popular sea fishing marks.

We have also built in links to the various webcams around the bay, which can be very useful if you want to have a quick peek at the sea before actually going fishing. If we have missed any, please let us know.
