Grays Wharf Venue.

Post by Cabrat » Mon Jan 05, 2009 1:18 pm

Below the pub Car Park and the Wharf Pub.

If you walk down the pomenade path with the pub on your right then you will come to the playground and then the Fishing Promenade.

Image

Walk to the sea wall look left over the wall this little jetty jutting out is where Frozentoes and i prefer to fish (Have seen a Father and son fishing off the sand and mud)

Image


Image

If you look to the right there is a second sticking out Area, lot of people fish off here but the boulders stick out quite a way...
This is directly in front of the Pub.

Image

This is the same spot taken from the other side..


Image

Looking down onto the playground . you can fish beyond the bushes just before the railings if the prom and little jetty's busy.

Image

Looking down the prom from where MadMick was fishing Sunday night 04-01-09.
The prom does get very busy and have seen 15-20 anglers on the prom alone.

Image

Now looking over to the playground from the prom.


Image

The Promenade area is fishable with a good casting about 3 1/4 to 3 3/4 hours before high tide and the same after if you can handle the speed at which the water passes you on the ebb. (Big Weights and lot of seaweed)
You can fish all the way to the Yacht club in front of the flats it just varies on the height of the prom wall and the depth of the flood one arae is about 45mins behind the prom in the sea touching the wall.

I do hope this helps.

Only fished here once 23-1-09 but going again, easy to get to along the A2 then A299 turn off after Hern Bay. 1 mile to village, car park (24 hour 80p) by church.

Picture taken looking towards Margate from sea wall, ground sand, sandstone and smooth rocks easy fishing. There is a good single beach other side of church you get to this by small lane RH side just before "Ethelbert" pub, access via gate that is locked at 6 pm, free parking close to beach, going to fish here 26-1-09.

Don't fish the beach under cliff past sea wall on spring tide you will get cut off.

Meant to be good all round but known for Thornback.

Easy to get to A2, M2 then A249 follow signs for Leysdown, take left turn b4 Leysdown "Warben Bay Rd" go along sea front until you get to car park oposite "Imperial Drive" Free parking.

Beach shingle, sand then mud flats, unless you can cast 150+ then can only fish 2 hours up and down.

Looking toward Sheerness Warnden point in distance.

Creek Hall Rd Northfleet 9-2-09

Post by Realytangled » Mon Feb 09, 2009 7:55 pm

Easy fishing no snags with 10 to 15 ft of water up sea wall at high tide you can easily fish 3hour either side of high water , space limited to about 10 rods, good reports but I blanked, will try it again.

Not given direction as not easy to get to Crete Hall Rd unless you a local, look it up on google, the venue is at the end of the road.
