Renowned as a family bathing beach (was there with my grand children and my mum just last week - nice chips, icecream, pity about all the folk!) Never fished it although I'm from Anglesey. You obviously tried for info. at Latham's in Benllech? (never been there but they are local) My advice would be to try the Northen 'arm' of the bay, (or even St. David's Bay just South of Benllech beach, at the end of the cliffs, only ever walked there!) if you try it again. Otherwise I did offer some advice to someone else ('Anglesey Bass' this page) about fishing Anglesey.

hi mate that is where i fish alot as i have a caravan in marian glas. if you fished for the mackerel at low tide its useless high tide is great, last weekend i had 44 mack in 1hour and half. fishing the bottom mainly produces doggys, dabs and the small odd flounder,
cheers

Hi Bill,
I know the mark you mean well. Also the campsite, Johns a top bloke,,,barking mad :)
As Jonathan says it really is doggy city off there,but if you can get a cast of over 120yds there are ray and smoothies to be had.
Big sandeel parcelled with mack and squid have been successful in the past.
Never had much success for bass off there but the link below may point you to some other decent marks on the island.
Hope this helps bud,

Hi Jonathan.
I`ve had smoothies and thornback from there but as I said,you need some distance.
Forgot to mention the conger.
I`ve caught amongst the rocks towards the left and right in the mouth of the deep fissure where all the kids go crabbing.
Nothing too big though and almost all on fresh caught whiting fillet.
All the best bud,
Terry F.
