    IF ITS AN EASY SESSION YOUR AFTER THEN FISH THE FROM THE RIGHT HAND SIDE OF THE PIER INTO THE CHANNEL THAT RUNS INTO THE HARBOUR. NOT MANY BIG FISH CAUGHT HERE BUT CHANCES ARE THAT YOU WILL CATCH SOMETHING. MAIN SPECIES CAUGHT HERE ARE FLATTIES, ROCKLING AND WHITING WITH THE ODD UNDERSIZE CODLING IN THE RIGHT CONDITIONS. CAN BE FISHED FROM APPROX AN HOUR AFTER LOW UNTIL AN HOUR BEFOE LOW AND OFFERS SHELTER FROM THE ELEMENTS. BEST BAITS ARE BLACK LUG, PEELER CRAB AND RAGWORM WITH THE ODD FISH CAUGHT USING MACKEREL AND SQUID. THE BLOCKS AT THE END OF THE PIER CAN BE QUITE PRODUCTIVE BUT BE READY TO LOSE SOME TACKLE THERE IS ALOT OF SNAGS. IF YOU PREFER THE BEACH THEN FISH ANYWHERE FROM THE PIER SOUTHWARDS. MOST PRODUCTIVE IS GENERALLY BENEATH THE OLD SLAG BANKS. THE FISHING IS OVER KELP BEDS AND ROCK AND BEST FISHED AN HOUR OF THE EBB AND AS THE TIDE FLOODS BUTLEAVE PLENTY OF TIME TO GET OFF THE BEACH AS YOU CAN GET CUT OFF. MAIN WINTER FISH CAUGHT IS COD WITH THE CHANCE OF FISH TO AROUND THE 5LB MARK BUT YOU HAVE TO LOOK HARD FOR THEM. BEST WEATHER IS IN A SOUTH WESTERLY WIND BUT THIS GENERATES LOTS OF WEED. AGAIN BEST BAITS ARE BLACK LUG, RAG AND CRAB.
