Waterloo Dock

Postby razer1 » Sat Dec 29, 2018 5:45 pm

I will be fishing there tomorrow for the first time in many years.

I seem to recall that one side of the small bridge was way snaggier than the other but I can't for the life of me remember if it was the right or the left side.

Does anybody know?

After so many “Christmas beers” I’m grasping at straws. I remember when the mark first opened up you would drive in through the aluminium ingots. The main mark was the point to the left, and cast towards Woodside. You would see lads fishing the wall as you turned left. I think this was the comfier spot, but like everything it fished better to the right if you could get access. We are going back 20 plus years tho. I think the common sense approach is if you want codling maybe look over the water or up river. If you want the big cod take the chance with the snags.

Good luck anyway!

Thinking on, to the right was the clock at the Collingwood. The lads, back then, who found a way in did well. Boats started fishing there rather than Seaforth etc. You’re in the right area for the 20lb fish that would appear, so if you can get there go for it!

A friend of mine is building on there which is why I can get access.

It fished OK for the first two hours ( I got there and hour after low) and I hooked two reasonable codling of around 3lbs one after the other but lost one pulling it up the wall. As soon as the tide picked up speed the fishing died and the weed was horrendous but it picked up again an hour and a half before high and carried on through to high water. Plenty of whiting (only one keeper) and a few dabs made it a very enjoyable afternoon. And I only lost two rigs to snags.
