Hello Phil,
The long arm is fishing well at the moment, can't comment on the short arm as i've never fished it, as for being too busy its a massive venue with room for all. In my experience i find the fishing to be more productive just after high water. If you hang around Brand will pop in and give his expert advice on this venue (he spends a lorra lorra time down there with great results). If i possibly can i never fish the Long arm alone as some of them rocks are quite dangerous, if however you do go on your own don't forget your mobile phone.

Cheers for that, I know that the surface of the sort arm is fairly easy to walk on but what is the long arm like??

Also, what is the terrain you are fishing over?? And is it is easy to "float fish" there as well.

I ahve also heard that you only allowed to fish one side only?? Is this true!

What is being caught there at the moment, and, what distance do you need to be casting. I am not really interested in congers!

Can't help much with the long arm mate, but me and the boys have had some luck with the bass at the second pier at corus (shorter one). Float fished fresh macky does the trick, loads of smaller ones but my mate had a 5lb 6oz the other week

Sounds good to me, does it get packed there on the weekend as we are waiting for our permits to arrive!

it can do but most people fish from either the centre path or the rocks on the dock side, if its busy i tend to walk up closer to the end, your best bet is to get there early and have a look around for yourself. We are having the bass on the float as i said but in close to our feet in between the rocks

Sorry to be a pain, but the short arm sounds similar to Brixham Breakwater, but shorter. With rocks either side gpoing into the water!
