What do people think ?? Worth a chuck or what ?
Good for fish upto maybe 5lb.
Plenty of bigger fish in there but getting them out is a problem with all the kelp in front of you.
HW maybe a possibility for the bigger ones when your higher up with a different angle of pull.
That's on light lure gear.
The lads using heavy beach tackle have more chance of the bigger fish
Personally I wouldn't want to catch Pollack on heavy gear. Pointless exercise to drag them out on an overgunned rod.
When walking along cliff top from RHB to Whitby , bay ness, all hawsker areas seems capable of producing, along to the old Whitby bull area etc,
We know of your prolific catches from Saltwick areas in yacks, so less access , more chance for the intrepid "rock hoppers" down that way
so get out & produce some fine pics of your catches/ exploits etc you know it makes sense, and open up a new venue for the more adventurous .
Anyone wanting to try may benefit from this article.
Without saying too much The Bass Club are already very aware of the potential for summer shore fishing in this area. We have taken Bass, Pollack, Wrasse, Coalies, Float fished Mackeral, and cod from here from the rocks already. At times there are more mackerel on these Rock Marks than there are on the piers. Its there to go at but will take people to put a lot of effort in. I already know of one near double figure pollack caught out of Iron spring on a spinning rod.
when the pollack get going it dosent really matter where you are, this coastline has so many features that you cant really fall off, obviously there are tired and tested areas that give the results, but if theres kelp and/or rock ledges then it will throw up the steam trains in fish suits
most of my experiance is further north with the likes of staithes and cowbar as the go to pollack holes, but you know yourself from ventures along saltwick that they are there in spades to the south as well
