BRIGHTON MARINA FISHING for the East and West breakwaters

wall assessment and update

We have now made it to the first lull in what seems to be a series of autumn blows and storms with another large one coming in sometime Saturday lunchtime onwards for at least 5 or more days.
So what are the walls looking like?

in short

East will be closed for 2-3 weeks
West will be open Fri 9am ish with some minor repair work today and Fri morning

The EAST seems to have taken the worst of things and will be closed until repairs can be sorted around the series of blows with the upper half of the east taking the brunt of the damage done.
A few pictures will be posted to the facebook group in the next day or so but there seems to be quite a lot of the stepping sections where people sit broken away and in doing so caused further damage to wires around the V’s as well as some of the red posts have been smashed away.

As a result of the damage on the east the wall is expected to stay closed for at least a couple of weeks are any repair work will have to be organised around the severe Autumn weather.
There is a possibility of getting the lower third of the east open but as I type I have only had a basic and quick visual report of the extent of damage on the east.

THE WEST WALL has less damage than was expected with the extension having taken the worst of the weather and will stay closed.
After some minor fixes the WEST WILL OPEN FRIDAY 4th NOV about 9am and will stay open for NIGHT FISHING Fri night into Sat morning.

The plan for Saturday is to keep the west open for as long as possible as the weather is expected to close in soon after lunchtime.

After this weekend BOTH WALLS will be closed for at least a week

Catch report for what and when they were open im told was good for squid and bass but TBH The feedback from the walls this week has been sketchy at best and non-existent at worst.
