One of my mates is down there at present, fishing around Ardwell and Port Logan. He was on the phone yesterday telling me that the area is full of coalies at present, with the odd one over the 2lb. mark.

not many places down there that will produce huss from the shore al , though you can never say never , caught plenty from port logan bay on the boat , also plaice there from the boat though it might be a bit early for them a lot of the marks down there al need a good walk to get to so be prepared !! snatcher is down this weekend so i,ll pm him an tell him to look out for you!!
check your pm :secret:

Hya Al - I gave Ardwell Bay a short session one night about a month ago - had several flatties and a doggie in about a hour of darkness - just fished the middle of the beach casting about 80 yards - ragworm
Somebody had a bass and some flounders off it earlier - gave me the idea
I used to like Port Logan beach but the wee coalies are onto the bait too soon and nothing else gets a chance !!!!
Dont waste you time in daylight on any of the shallow beaches !!!! (IMHO)
