How do men. Last time I fished west pier on a big tide I ended up fishing on the side casting towards sandsend. Had a few fish but later in tide found it very hard to hold bottom Tide was running left to right and sweeping lead in to pier. Is this what always happens or was this just cos tide was big. 6.2 it was. Would I have been able to hold if I had fished it like from boat uptiding.
