Got out tonight for a couple of hours at the local pier. Fished on the rocks where the beach meets the pier. It wasn't the intended area I was going to fish but was a little getting out and missed the high tide for the spot I had wanted to fish. Anyway, have had Bass from this area beforewhen bait fishing so thought I'd give it a go with the lures.

Only caught one small coalie which decided to throw itself back in as I was sorting the camera out so no pic unfortunately.

Couple of pics of the area.

give marsden a shot mate, should be wrasse around there on the sp's. Also pollock, plenty of bait fish in that area.

I've never seen so many sand eel in frenchman's bay when we were up there last year, saying that we only caught big launce so too many bait fish may be a bad thing.

Its been a while since I lived in Shields @ the marine college - ocean road and the curry houses still there?

Nice one on the coalie!
Ocean road is now nearly a curry house every other property, bloody loads of them and they're all pretty good. Get the wind in the right direction and you can smell them when on the end of the pier :shock:. For those that don't know - Shields pier is a mile long and about a further quarter mile to Ocean Rd.

That was where I was inteding to head off to Andy till I got delayed. Would have meant fishing into the first two hrs of the dropping tide which generally is a waste of time there. Its the next target though once a bit free time matches up with the tides.
