Swanage Pier. The Prom.
This is the area from the entrance to the toilet block near the Dive Centre. It will usually be crowded along here with cars, divers and their gear. If you can find a space to fish then you will be fishing on rough, weedy ground with a few clear patches which can be seen if the water is clear. You can catch wrasse, pout, blennies, rockling, mullet, bass, small conger and if you cast out a bit further into the clean ground, flounders. The area is very shallow at low tide and dries out on the lowest tides.
