For this latest episode the From the Waters Edge team headed back down to Essex to fish with their good friend Phil White, aboard his boat the Chinook III. They had one species in mind, the thornback ray or skate, roker as it’s also known.
The spring months can be an excellent time to target these fish and with a lack of codling this year they have provided some welcome sport for the boats and anglers fishing the Thames Estuary.
To find out exactly how they fared and to find our a little more on how to target the thornback, watch this latest instalment From the Waters Edge.
