Quite a debate going on locally, in the tackle shops and amongst many local lads about anglers fishing the West Pier in bad conditions ? Some forum members have been criticised, Rumors are circulating that Whitby Club are going to ban the pier if the gate is shut. Personally I believe its the safest place to be out of all the marks so long as you practice some common sense such as never going down the ladder for a fish and being careful when crossing the west pier bridge. I believe it fishes best in the most extreme conditions and its each individuals right to make their own choice of wether to fish there or not. So what are peoples thoughts ?
