ahhhhhh so its before the seaction of water were the fort is situated!
so is it best to fish this after the tides gone out???

and does it fish well here when the tides in? suppose when its high tide you cannot define were the creek is:g:
Hello mate , there's not enough water to fish at low and the tides are smaller this weekend.
If you are going, I would try tomorrow, HT is around 11.10am so 9.45 til 1 would be OK.........:thumbs:

PS. please don't be tempted to cross the creek and head for the fort, it can be very dangerous in this area.

i've caugth plenty of flounders in there at low as long as there's still some colour in the water prob only 12 to 18 inches deep (have walked across in wellies) all though mainly in winter, too many bathers about if the weathers half decent this time of year, used to fish better on smaller tides. fish it light with a plain lead to get some movement in your baits

Take a look at low water and you,ll see why its called the creek, it,ll also give you an idea on how and where to fish....... Chris

Not sure on that one Ben, but if I was to hazzard a guess I would say that Freeman Street was as good as anywhere for a good " plugging "...:whistling

Hi Ben, i spoke to a guy last year who,d been spinning for bass with some success, he was catching on small meps and spoons. Most of his catches were from around the big wheel on the promenade at Cleethorpes around high water in daylight.......... Chris
