Just a quick note to anyone who is trying to find out how to get a pass to sea fish the docks at Liverpool.
Please don’t email me about POLSAF permits as i don’t know anything more than the information below.
The Port of Liverpool Sea Angling Federation (POLSAF) have a new website which has all the details about affiliated clubs, rules, areas where we can fish, etc. so if your thinking of trying the docks this winter for the Cod that seasonally show up in the River Mersey it is well worth visiting the POLSAF website.
Sea fishing at Seaforth Dock, Alex Wall and other marks within the Freeport complex is always popular during winter as the venue is safe and secure and usually protected from the worst of the winter storms. Normal beach or rock fishing gear is all that is needed as long casts are not required. Undoubtedly the best bait for the winter season Cod is black lug and peeler crab (if you can get it).
During the warmer months there is a good chance of catching Thornback Ray from Alexendra Dock Wall or Alex Wall as the mark is called, using Sandeel and/or Squid as bait.
