    folkestone pier today

    To remove this advert please register for a free account

    Had a dabble down folkestone pier today with my mate mark. got there a bit later than id hoped we would but it was frantic from the off with most cast only being out 5-10mins before being retrieved with double and treble shot of fish, mainly dabs with odd whiting. we were both using 2 rods with 3 hook flappers.

    the bait was very manky rotten blacks mackerel herring and very very pink squid. the best bait by far was the squid, and frozen blacks hardly caught anything at all. the pier was empty until about 2pm when a couple of anglers turned up to fish the first bend and hastily started adding to the ever growing snags.

    the dabs continued all day , but we also found a few pouting and rockling to mix things up a bit. as the light faded a bit the dabs slowed down and the whiting came out in force, 3 hook flappers being filled up in minutes.

    on the inside of the pier there was quite alot of surface action with the gulls swarming on what looked like sprats scattering accross the surface.

    we had a fiver on the biggest dab and i gladly took the fivers with a 32cm tasty dab.

    neither of us hit any snags until my very last cast in a spot id been fishing in all day, strange how that happens.

    we were a bit dissapointed when the steward came along and told us the pier now closes at 4pm due to vandalism and more shockingly a rape incident that occured on the pier back in sept/oct. its a real shame as its a great spot for targetting a few summer species. another example of the scum that dwell in our region.

    all in all it was a good day and ive now made plenty of room in my freezer for the onset of peelers in the next few months.
