Depends what your fishing for mate, bass tend to be at the bottom of the pier - either in the surf or down close to the lock gates. Top is good for mackerel, dogs, whiting etc. Scad and gars can be picked up over the seaward side using a float. Best fun comes from the end, light rod, float fished strip of mackerel or sandeel and just let it go out in the rip.


Plenty of small fish just over the wall, towards the end theres alot of structure close in - rocks etc. you may get snagged up a little bit but the rewards tend to be worth the tackle loss.

stick to small hooks (size 8 - 6) with small baits, mackerel or mud rag and you'll catch all day.
