Chaps,

Ive got a Warrior 165 and want to get out and try for some bream and bass out of Swansea. Was meant to be on a charter out of there Sunday but the weather ruined that !!

Could anyone advise me of what the area is like, how accessible the fishing is around there and where we can expect to hit bream and bass shoals - is it close in or over 6 miles out ? And also if anyone knows - what winds make it impossible to get the boat out of the bay ?

thanks for any help that anyone can offer.

Cheers

Any wind with East in it makes conditions difficult in Swansea Bay, with anything that has West in it you can find shelter, Southerlies are normally light anyway, Northerlies tend to hit Townhill & that takes the sting out out of it. W, SW, NW are the best winds (within reason) you can always get out & "hide" if necessary. Big winds come with the big springs USUALLY, but of course some big tides bring no wind at all, small tides dont react as much to the wind, they dont create the "stand" of waves that springs do,(if you get what I mean)!
A 42ft tide running out past Mumbles Head creates a stand of water that a 32footer doesn't!
Marks, look at your charts for the reefs off Langland Bay for bream, & further out over the White Oyster Ledge for bass. Paternosters with small strong hooks for bream. Live sandeel on long flowing traces for bass. Hope this helps.
