Where rules meet

Certain spots provide many positive factors for the fish: exposed coast with mixed bottom, sand and weed covered stones. Variation, shelter and food is here in plenty.

Stones and weed
This is a typical location that meets allmost all criteria for being a good sea trout spot: A mix of sand an weed covered stones on a location where current and tide keeps the water fresh. On good days such spots are easily seen from the beach or even from a car, when you pass them.

What are you looking for?

So what you're generally looking for is dry land characteristics that indicate dark bottom with stones and rock. You'll want fairly shallow water 1-3 meters (3-9') and a good base for food, which basically means weed.

Summer & Winter

In the summer the fish will seek current (bringing good water) while they will seek still water (warmth) in the winter.

Fish don't know the rules

But... and there is a but. Fish will sometimes be on the move end especially spring and autumn will bring fish to places where the bottom doesn't seem very good: sandy with no shelter.
