Me and my son went to Whitehaven Pier from Morecambe for a change of venue and had a good day with 4 different species
Nothing big but pleased to be catching
Between the two of us we had
4 Blenny's
3 Gurnnard
1 Coalfish
1 Weaver

Further along the pier there was a report of a good size conger landed

The only stain on the day was about 2.00pm some kids turned up with rods and tried feathering for mackerel.
Nothing wrong with that but when they then started throwing litter allover the pier and after being asked by another angler to put it in a nearby bin ignored him and threw a plastic bottle on the floor
IGNORANT GITS

All in all a good day out and a nice change of venue

Nice little session there. Always strikes me as odd someone can carry something to a venue but not take it back - when it's usually lighter!

Awesome, thanks for the advice mate
Np mate, i no this from experimenting, i took a whole pin whiting cut it in half so it was whiting flapper and attatched it to 3 3/0 viking hooks and 50lb shockleader, dangled it over the side of the "wooden" bulls nose and there was something on the end, but i could not control it

Do you think a mackerel flapper would work on a 8/0 o'shaughnessy attached to 200lb mono(this is what i use for conger when i go wreck fishing)
