fishfinder, the best way of asking that question, is to start a new thread headed say, SWANSEA PIER. then in the box type your message, ie, does any 1 fish swansea pier, or live in swansea , etc.. as you can see by doing it the way you have, basstastic doesnt know the question, because you have it as the heading or title.. ok.. hope this helps, it can be confusing, but dont worry ..

Fishfinder, you must be talking about the West Pier, you walk past Rogers Tackle & Bait Shop out along the concrete road to the end. Best to fish the beach side rather than the river, the dredger is currently making the river crap! I fished there last night, loads of small whiting but nothing of any size, saw only one whiting worth keeping all evening.
I was told that the Docks Board are charging £25 to fish the West Pier only, when the charge for fishing West, East, & Queens Dock Breakwater was only £26! They can go & take a flying ****, for their £25.
The fishing was good off the West about a month ago, but like everywhere its gone off the boil now.

I Have not fished the west pier in a few years. I lost my interest there when I got a licence for 2 years for the east dock ( quieter than the west pier because of the fee but also fished better) , since the docks authoritys stopped the license for that I stopped fishing there alltogether as blue skip suggested the license fee was an insult though I admit it's nice and easy and a great place to teach the kids the ropes in relative safety. It always fished quite well then through both summer and winter mostly small stuff many and varied. Can the docks security police the west dock, it doesn't seem likely as they are situated on the east side, has anyone been challenged for a license?

Apparently they do have a "purge" every now & again, especially when the whiting & mackerel shoals are in & the place is crowded, or when some brainball catches the dredgers props or the Pilot boat or similar, then they come over checking.
On the last occasion they inspected, of the 70 estimated anglers, only 2 had permits, which the holders promptly threw into the water as useless, when the other 68 were allowed to carry fishing without even a caution!
Next year I will get one, its only £5.25 for OAPs ha ha ha, & I will tell "the man" that the rest of you haven't got one!!!
