you wouldnt launch at lo water on the 22nd. the water will be off the end of the slip from 0314 til 0638 and also between 1537 and 1907. At those times the water should
be right at the drop off at the slip end so it needs a fair bit of leeway either side of that. Launching nearer low than high is much easier. The angle of the slip at the top after "the dogleg" is much shallower and the tide can kick up sone goodly waves. I would prefer to be down less than say 6m.
Bass?? the lads fish commercialy by rod n line for 'em but it needs a **** loada local knowledge
Better be content to bottom fish for plaice with black or blowlug around the outside of walney and hope the odd wandering bass turns up for ya. The plaice fishing there was absolutely out of this world 15 years ago but then our european b******, sorry cousins came a visiting
Still the odd one around if youre lucky.
