PF says: Af­ter do­ing a bit of re­search, I’ve dis­cov­ered that Burn­ham-on-Sea of­fers the chance to tar­get thorn­backs, congers, bass, floun­ders and soles. These are reg­u­larly caught close in by lo­cal an­glers, with rag­worms a pop­u­lar bait choice. If you fish near the light­house on a neap tide, start­ing at low water and the whole flood, you stand a real good chance of catch­ing.
