Identification Methods
The same family as Dab and Flounder (pleuronectidae) plaice are brown on top and white underneath. They have distinctive lumps on the head and orange spots. Plaice feed on worms and crustaceans although mackerel strips can also be successful for larger fish. Unsurprisingly, it is the older, bigger fish that are caught further from the coast. Can be caught from shore and boat and as they hunt by sight it is important to cast into clear water.
