I know what you mean, im going to southport in june, ive been told of fleetwood, rossal, and blue bridge, but have no idea what they look like, a pic of the area would really help, unless i see about 100 anglers looking happy. :D

If you watch the waves as they come in, at certain points the wave disappears as i...
