    Whats the word on the grapevine from the angling club lads ? Are you aloud to weigh in your fish tomorrow night if you climb the fence on the west pier ?

    Also what about the other clubs ? Have St Marys banned the lads from climbing the fence ?

    Intersting stuff. Wonder if they will come to escort us lads off in the middle of winter. May have to keep our lights off.

    they probably will mate as i heard the policeman say ...its a dangerous structure and it's fenced off for a reason.

    So is the south gare but no-one takes any notice. Would be nice to hear from one of the sites bobbies. Can they legally stop you from fishing there ? Im wondering what law it contravenes.

    Lobbers phwwore i love gwen stefani me like

    stealth is the way forward, i wont be getting chucked off, they have tried in the past and failed, i was on there on there in a storm 9 once banging cod out, the harbour bloke came along holding the railings all the way up, and said "you will have to come off the pier" , i said to him you must be mad you, walking on the end of ere, to tell me to get off because its dangerous, it cant be that dangerous, he shrugged his shoulders and said, "try mussel, it been doin better than owt", and held the railing all the way back off :yes:

    Can you actually get onto Whitby west pier?

    Wanting to fish the pier on saturday, I know it's closed but how hard is it to get round the fences and onto the end? Heard there's a few fish been caught by the lads who have got on there. Cheers

    Re: Can you actually get onto Whitby west pier?

    Theres another topic on here about it. Apparently the police and Harbour staff are removing people off the pier

    tell the police to hop it and that you got on at low water from the beach and along the ledge and that your going off the same way next tide . how can they stop you from doin that . its the bridge you cant use, the police wouldnt know you sneaked over the fence 10 mins ago thats my excuse anyway .

    cctv operaters called the harbour master, they are keeping a look out on bridge as that is what they say is dangerous, check out the protest site on facebook
