I fish the Warren in my own boat regularly thru the winter months for Cod. Provided the wind is NW you can get out in almost anything. The Spring tides can be pretty fierce in the Warren. We usually try to find 90ft of water before anchoring. You can uptide OK. Sorry if you are a beach angler, if so would be interested to know how you get on. I was told by a local charter skipper that the Bass run right thru the winter in the Warren but few people fish for them as they are after Cod.
