As far as I am aware you need to report to the main gate with 2 forms of ID during working hours and complete an application form.

The Bass fishing will pick up there from now on.  Fish to right of the carpark behind 33 FH.  Six ounce breakaway with paternoster and pennel rig. I use 3/0 uptide hooks.  Bait with slightly pink whole squid or large piece of Garfish or Mackerel.  Fish the ebb tide into darkness.  Cast directly up the harbour towards the ballast pile.  Casta as far as you can.  Fishing this way is easier to hold in the tide than fishing across it.  Once you hook the fish start moving to your left.  Sometimes bigger fish are lost if they get into the rocks to the right.  A dropnet is useful.

The pier the other side of the pilots down towards the green cathedral and casting towards Hasler marina will throw up Sole in darkness plus a few Eels and occassional Bass on worm baits.

The end of Petrol pier on the pontoon is good with lures in darkness.  Cast out into the dark with a surface lure and bring across the lighted area slowly.

The Wrasse fishing can be brilliant from the carpark.  There is a bank of weed about 30yds out.  Fish into this with a 2 or 3 hook paternoster.  Keep the rig light.  I use .40 rig bodies with 12lb fluoro hooklengths about 2 foot long.  Use a size 2 wormer hook (sasame or similiar) with pink and white floating soft beads above the bait (search for Floozeyes).  The small ragworm baits floating up amongst the weed are deadly.  You will get plenty of double shots of small Wrasse but if you keep at it better fish to 2lb ish also show.  I have also had Bream and shoal Bass doing this.  Best over high water on a sunny day.

Garfish are also present until mid Oct if the water remains clear.
