Can be good on it's day,problem is the dog walkers and at times gangs of drunken idiots and their barbecues.Much more pleasant fishing in the winter to my mind.
However ,to the left of the car park ,if you walk to the old wooden structures and go just past them there is deep water that can be productive ,i have had bass ,flounders,doggies etc,or off to the right of the car park at the far end you have gypsy lane i think it is called,look for a green marker buoy and you MAY just get lucky with the odd bream or so.
Never tried fishing over the rag beds but often thought it could be worth a shot.

Dave i`m new to sea fishing as you`ve probably seen me say at least 1000 times on my posts, my first decent catch came from 200 yards to the right of the sailing club as you look out to sea, a mark called Sandy Point, i fished it 2 hours up to high tide and 2 hours down until about midnight, using a 2 hook pennel with whole squid and a simple running ledger with crab or mackerel head for the bass. A beautiful spot that in my 3 visits has produced 2 bass to 5lbs and 2 smoothies and 1 starry, this is the spot which i keep banging on about be clean and a lovely place to fish, that i kept the name secret but i`m pretty sure every decent angler knows where it is, the weed dishes up a small problem but nothing to major league, i`m going down Sunday night myself with the mrs about 6ish to pick up a couple of mackerel for the monday/tuesday night session.

Sorry for the waffle but hope it helps.

Certainly NOT waffle; inexperienced you may be (a bit like me TBH), but that is great info for that spot.

If you have a very good cast on you and some very fresh mackie (ie caught a few minutes before).....a wire trace (or my preference 120lb mono), you just may have a bit of 'extreme' fun there at this particular time of year!

If you do.............set the clutch light and hang on! :whistling

Good luck.

At this time of year leep fishes best at first light/early morning with ragworm for the bass,a mate of mine fishes it this time every year and its not uncommon for him to leave a morning sesh with 4 bass to take home.

Lepe has been Very Very weedy for the last few weeks making it almost unfishable in general terms ,last Thurs seemed to clear slightly after high water but noticed anyone else trying to fish soon gave up after an hour or so with lumpy weed. Hope it clears a bit for your visit!

Depending on my shifts on Fri/Sat I may be able to join you and try my new rod out. Next 2 weeks off - woohoo! So plenty of options for a little while.

Just found out what I may be doing tomorrow and it looks like a no-go for me, unless it changes.

As for the rod, it's a Daiwa Supercast 13ft(Rough Ground version), I've paired it up with a Penn Surfmaster reel. I wanted a rod that would be able to give me more casting distance and have good bite detection and after a bit of reading, the Supercast seems to fit the bill.

Tried Lepe yesterday. Around the old Custom house (Black & White building on the beach) Dug some local bait and fished the incoming tide with that and Sand Eels. Blanked. Spoke to 3 other guys fishing, all blank. Not even a bite. Even the crabs didnt seem that interested.
Very Little weed around along the main beach

Didnt really matter though as it was such a beautiful day and even nicer evening.
