The Admiralty Pier will re-open at 8am on Wednesday 4th March 2015 and will close at 9pm on a daily basis, except Friday and Saturday when it will remain open all night.

The Admiralty Pier at the extreme western end of the harbour provides excellent sport the year round and is managed by the DSAA with stewards on hand every day. The cost of a day ticket is £7.00 (non-members), £6.00 for DSAA Members and just £4.00 for Senior Citizens and children.
Bass can be caught early morning or evening, Mackerel during the summer, excellent size Cod during the winter months but also Plaice and Huss. This Pier attracts anglers from far and wide.
The Admiralty Pier has two fishing areas; the first is the shore end as far as “The Turret” which is mid way and then the Pier Extension where many of the larger fish are landed but there are strong tides running at times so good tackle is recommended at all times.
During the summer months excellent catches of Mackerel are always being reported with anglers sometimes landing as many as five or six fish at a time. Feathers and other artificial lures are best.
