I presume you have to walk from East Beach or West Beach as Gunners park is now closed. If this is the case it is quicker to walk from the west beach but you have to wait longer before you can walk out in the mud to get past the fence.

OK lads, please spill the beans. Where is this jetty. I have moved local to the sea-front now (off Maplin Way) and have seen the jetty to the left (facing out to sea) of the Life Guards post at Thorpe Bay (near the launching slipway) but i was told not to bother as it is MD owned.

I am going to have a crack at the above mentioned jetty but assume the tide ebbs past the end?

Is this the same jetty or is there another.

Any local info greatly appreciated and would like to come along if you want some company.

It is just to the left of the Coast Guard Station,looking at the sea from Ness Rd slipway just about a 1/4 mile east of Thorpe Bay Yacht Club Howard.You can walk along the beach to it as long as it isnt a very big high tide from the slipway.There is a Gulley way that sweeps past the end of it although it does dry out.

Its no longer MOD owned, but there are some flats going up near there and I know the builders were working around the pier. You can get to the pier either from the coastguard station (just walk past the fence saying no entry) or from East Beach. I have mainly used this pier for flounder fishing although you can get some cracking bass from it if lure fishing.
The only problem I have found with the pier is that the fences that you have to walk past go out into the sea and you can walk past them around 4 hours after high tide, so if its a crap session you are stuck unless you want to get wet.

HJLT, I might give it a bash friday night if you fancy tagging along HW is 00.44, I have had plenty of good bass from there over the years on red gils as well. Also if you float fish just to the right and left of the pier about 4ft of the beach. There is another spot there that no one fishes anymore and that alway threw up the larger bass when i was in the forces there. Its the hut to the left of the pier near the rocky area. Wormman did your mate see any macky or herring jumping about, sometimes you can get them there for live bait, that sorts out the small fry when trotting undeneath.

Very, very occasionallly they get washed up on the shore, dont kick it, keep away from it and you will be fine. They often find them on east beach and all the way along that part of the shore. The magazines blew up in foulness around the time of the first world war. There was so much ordanance lying around they just bulldozed it out to sea, and some of it now gets washed ashore.
