Last summer I took up shore fishing, mostly from a local pier on the Solway Firth. I have been pleasantly surprised at the range of species that I have had. It as been a learning curve as my previous attempts in the sea have been confined largely to dabbles on holidays.
I have been going to the pier as it is easy to park up and walk a short distance to fish, my mobility isn't getting any better. However what I have found to be a bit of a bind is the weather, or more specifically the wind direction. Some of the locals insist that it is a waste of time to fish in an Easterly wind, I have looked around online and as so often happens found mixed advice on this. This last week for example the tides were up at good convenient times for me but we have had continuous Easterly winds. I have tried it with the wind in that direction and although have caught it has been slow.with few fish. What do you experienced shore people think?
