ERITH PIER

Post by addickman »

HI ALL, i fished erith pier with a mate on thursday afternoon ( 4 pm high tide ) had 4 good bites but all missed. hooked into a loverly shopping trolley and ended up losing my rig when it got away , my mate had a couple of half hearted bites but missed them as well. we were both using wishbone rigs with rag and squid , the weather was very blustery but the rain mostly passed us by , fished from 2pm till 7pm so we did give it a good go. :)) :)) :)) :)) good luck and tight lines to everyone fishing this weekend.

erith pier

Post by addickman »

nice little fish , at least it proves to me there are fish in that area .
the pier at morrisons is the new erith pier and looking to the north bank on the left there is a wooden jetty about 50 / 75 yards upstream but i dont know wether this is the old pier or not , as i have got arthritis in both knees the new pier is just right for me , have you tried deal down on the coast thats one of my fav's , always catch something there even if its small pouting. havent been down in the`summer due to the rebuilding of the cafe and toilets on the end of the pier but i think the should be nearly finished and then i might give it a go again , it has been open for fishing but i think it has been a bit restricted . anyway keep those lines tight and good luck in the :)) :)) :))
