im no expert neither but have allways thought red spots mean plaice ,but sounds like they might not have been ,i had two like that the rest were flounders i believe , also had a thump thump then slackline but missed it ,a classic cod bite i would of thought ,so i was a bit unlucky with that one ,might see you again sometime ,nice to meet you by the way.
life is like a box of chocolates.....

Here is a pic of the plaice, as you can see the classic red spots,
                                                                                               
and here is a flounder, as you can see it can easily be mistaken,,

chances are there flounder ,very few plaice caught on our coast and even less at this time of year.
dont usually show till march in shallow water off the beaches .
to be sure plaice have a line of four or more bony stickups on there heads going from front to back.

Hard Luck mate keep going thats fishing unfortunately  ;)
