5 of us from "kent sea fishing forum" crossed the boarder to originally fish "widewater" after picking up some prime "maddies" from mr puddles (cheers mate) we headed for "widewater" to be greeted by the "sargasso sea" after 2 casts we called it a day totally un-fish able...so we all agreed on fishing the nearest fish able venue "the west arm" after arriving at the venue we paid £2.00 to park (all day) and £4.00 to fish 2 rods for 12 hours
which if any off you have done an all-nighter on "the breakwater" in dover (£13 to park,£6 for the boat,£7 to fish) was dirt cheap.....any how we had a great days fishing catching various species..ranging from "golden grey mullet,black bream,mackies,red mullet,dab,schoolies" not many venues you can do that from not in kent any way and as big arnie always says "we will be back:fishing:

nice pics, the mullet do love it round there ive had a few myself, my mate even caught one ~1.5-2lb in his prawn net a couple of summers ago.
i dont think you can realy compare the prices between the west arm and the dover breakwater though, its a different kettle of fish, i think the marina is a better comparison.

not really mate still only a concrete structure in a harbour, was only trying to point out how cheap it is to fish compared with most of the piers/breakwaters in kent with the "breakwater" being the dearest:spiteful:

yes mate, it was saturday there was quite a few on there, some on the lower platform float fishing and it seemed to get busier at night...what i liked about the venue is its not the longest of piers but it wasn't over crowded ,those fishing the bottom deck didn't interfere with those on the top:fishing:

glad you enjoyed your first trip there mate, tbh it seems like paying realy is the way forward to enjoy this venue because up untill a few weeks ago before the charges were brought in you could hardly move on there at the weekends due to the amount of anglers

Excellent report - good to briefly catch up with skatenchips and glad you all enjoyed it.

Hope at least some of you guys will be back down our way for the SAS Intercounty bash next month at Widewater.

By the way, I hope that all those who fish the arm regularly - or used to when it was free - notice from those pics not a scrap of litter or sea weed!

As a 1st visit to the arm,I have to say it was pleasent to find a clean structure and " lightly" policed....well if you call Lee cycling up and down to monitor things asking all the right questions....:fishing:

Also had a chance to meet,mark s who is behind the day to day running of the pier.....nice to meet you fella and I hope your endevours are seen thru by the local council...:fishing:

For anybody new to the arm,I purchased a couple of rigs and some quality lug and ragworm and was pleased with both.

Im the one holding the worlds smallist Dab poking me tongue out at jeffro.

Ok,so id have rather been on widewater but the SW wind had trashed the beach but if your looking for a safe haven for a session I would return to the west arm any time....:fishing:

also good to meet Jay w as well.
