It's closed season in the pells pond at the moment (march 14th - June 16th). When the season opens, the fishing is excellent. There's a lot of nice carp in there which were all spawning by the islands in last weeks warm weather.

it's closed because the french company that own the harbour declared the harbour wall and beach below the wall at risk of partial collapse

Never been sea fishing...except when on holiday with a little telescopic rod but one day this summer, I'm going to take the kids down to the marina for a few hours with my carp rods and fish for a few Mackerel, come home, gut them and then cook them on the BBQ.

Good idea, although the last time i i caught a load of mackerel, i gutted them there and and the seagulls loved it. Everyone was happy!

Apparently you can still fish from the Seaford side of the Newhaven quay. You can't fish from the Newhaven side though. No surprisingly it's a health and safety issue that's caused the closure (and that of the sandy beach too).
I fished off it a few times last year at dawn and caught so many mackeral I quickly got heartily sick of them. This year I'm going for bass. Another couple of weeks and the fish might have come close enough to the shore to make fishing worth while again.

Lots of nice mullet under Wileys bridge the other weekend when it was hot. The tide was very low (lots of shopping trolleys could be seen which i have informed the EA of once already) and the water was pretty clear, you could certainly see the bottom with poloroids on.

I Know what you mean MC, im no John Wilson but i caught loads of mackerel and froze loads and gradually grew sick of them. Not to mention burping hours later and getting that rank mackerel after-taste! Urrgh.

unless you want the mullet swimming around in your bath for a week or so i would'nt touch them out of the ouse, way too muddy.

There were mullet on the Barcombe side of Hamsey weir yesterday. As they are sea fish in a tidal river does the closed fishing season apply or can you fish for them now?
