Re: Fishing at Brighton Pier


The number of people going up there to catch crabs has got a lot bigger just in the last year and probably will keep getting bigger until crab catching is banned off the pier. They have a cleaner that goes there every morning around 4am that cleans up any mess. Personally I see no problem with fishing in the no fishing zone, using two rods and overhead casting as long as it’s late and no one’s around. It’s a different story during the day when there’s tourists and families coming out to look and they need space plus there’s the rest of the pier to fish and it’s no different.
