Myself, Welshwanner and Shane B took the 2.5 hour drive to St Brides bay yesterday. We fished a mark on the left hand side of the bay from around 3.30pm untill 8.30pm.What a stunning venue and luckily the weather played ball too.

Shane B had pollack, rockling, what we think is some sort of shanny/blenny type thing (i'd be greatful if someone could tell us what it is) and a few wrasse including a cracking 2lb10oz fish.

I managed my first ever rockling quickly followed by my 2nd and 3rd (it never rains it pours...)

Welshwanner managed a double hit of rockling and a small wrasse.

All the fish were caught on the light gear cast over the edge of the ledges. Only one bite came along on the ledger gear.

Despite the lack of fish on the beachcasters it was a wicked day out with plenty of banter and laughs. The weather started to play up around 8pm which was the reason we headed for home (checking out a few other venues along the way).

Many thanks to old dog and Rockling for the advice, tight lines all....


P.S HAPPY BIRTHDAY WANNER YOU OLD GIT, NOT LONG FOR YOUR BUSS PASS NOW MATE........

I would say both ballans but the small ballans can look so much like the corkwing that its hard to tell. There was a thread on the general fishing quite a few months ago asking what wrasse the guy had caught, i think it went on for about 10 pages and there was still no deffinate answer???
