Swanage pier

Hi all.

After spending the day in Swanage yesterday, was wondering if anyone knows how the pier fishes. Looks like a good depth there, any feedback would be appreciated.

regards

Float fishing is popular with pieces of mackerel - catches gars, pollack and mackerel, sometimes bass. Worm gets lots of little wrasse. Bottom is fairly snaggy I believe, but casting lead away from pier can find clean bed in places. Talk to the locals and the tackle shop.

I prefer the beach after dark myself.
