In short, yes you can, though you're not really supposed to! ;) you might burn in hell

I usually park on St.Mary's rd and walk along the beach, then back along the barrows on the way back :thumb:

Depends which section you fish, on the really small tides (7 metres) you can get off on all states of tides. The high 7's to low 8's you generally get cut off but only for an hour or so either side of HW.

Here's the venue guide I did a while back....

Throbshaw point is the rocks jutting out into the sea......

You don't want to pick a tide any bigger than 8.6m, smaller if it's windy....

Island of Rods!!
You've got to be careful you don't get cut off with the tide coming behind you. **This is not a big tide venue** This pic was an 8m tide at high water, you could still get off this particular outcrop. Obviously an 8.6m would be dodgy and I wouldn't fish on this bit.
Image

The flattish outcrop to the far right (as you look out to sea) is generally safe up to 8.6m. Use common sense though, if it's blowing a gale and waves are crashing over........
Image

The outcrop underneath the power station on the left of this pic gets cut off on all but the very smallest tides, but I've fished this bit on a 9m tide if the conditions are right, as it very rarely gets covered. That's local knowledge though and I wouldn't advise anyone to do this. If you're unsure, don't take a chance!
Image

If you look at this satellite picture you can see the areas where there's less weed...so the tide doesn't come over often....
Image

You can expect to catch some quality plaice from late march early april onwards......and bass! ;) As well as the usual flounder. Lug/rag or cocktail for the plaice, peeler crab for the bass flounder.

Don't be afraid to drop a bait really close in (literally 2m out from the outlying rocks) at high tide. I've picked up quite a few school bass like that! Often thought it might be worth fishing a sandeel under a float there!

Think the only time that parking by the church is a problem is when there is a service on.

Does anyone know if the Royal has re-opened yet? I used to like a few hours fishing followed by a pint and a bite to eat! was there last autumn but it was closed for refurbishment.

I'd fish it 3hrs up, it fishes better on the flood :thumb:
