BRIGHTON MARINA FISHING for the East and West breakwaters

west will close at 11pm

Climbing onto the upper level of the east for any reason is putting the chances to fish the wall at risk.

Any further incidents and the east wall will be closed to anglers  for the duration of the repairs.

may rot saturday

well,  both walls full very early …   mid afternoon was almost 1 in one out.

catch rates  hampered by the  may rot but  a fair amount of plaice to be had of mixed sizes,  a few bass also… a decent bream on bay 5 before the high tide & plaice as low as bay 6 all seen on the east.

Seen a pic/report of squid on the east with bream plaice & bass all recorded on that side.

small tides combining with may rot so ppl shouldn’t be expecting tons of fish. 

Nice to be out there in the sun  with rods  over the side though

sluggish going on the walls today … loads of rot & gloop on the lines today , seemed to condense as the tide rose.

Bass of 45cm on the east today , a scattering of plaice, wrasse & blennies , west similar sort of story , a few plaice (if u know the sand patches) and bream up the far end today.

Short tides mean bait is not so easy to get …

shop open 7.30 tomorrow … order early or lose out ….

walls are 1st come 1st serve …. we dont book spaces, never have & never will.

It was nice to be out & on the walls though.Murky water , lots of rot , not really smelling it yet so here for a while yet .saw one  floating for squid after the high  bay 6 east … couple knocks of cuttle but no takes while I was there.

Plaice on the east bend and a little above also .. no numbers , all  mid tide towards the high, decent sizes  3 kept.1 rogue mackerel bay 23ish and some wrasse on the lower baysTough going  for all.
