Right then... one down, one to go! As I mentioned in another post I took up sea angling a couple years ago and regardless of the decent (not serious) number of hours and god knows how many hundreds of pounds Ive put into I just havn't been getting the rewards. I can count on two hands the number of decent fish i've caught (and approaching a good year since the last one!)... In all honestly I just cant be a*sed with it anymore but I don't like giving up on things easily and without giving it a proper chance so Ive given myself two sessions this weekend to try and re-discover by motivation for sea fishing. (I doubt I will pack it in all together but I can't see it being anything more than every now and again unless something dramatic happens).

One of them was at Redwick this eve and did nothing to restore my confidence. Soooooooooo, can anyone give me an idea of where to go tomorrow (within 40 mins of Newport) for my best chance of a decent fish?

The further west you can go the better really mate. Even if its only down to the headlands off barry, you will still be in with a chance of hooking into something decent.

The only thing your likely to get half decent up our neck of the woods at the moment is dongers and maybe a thornie if your lucky:eek:hmy:

But head down barry way and you got a btter chance. Head further west again(stout area) and yougot a chance of a decent blonde on these bigger tides:victory:

Got any more info on these marks? Fished Porthcawl early in the year and didnt have a great deal but heard its gets packed out during the summer?

Also I heard Witches and Stout Point and pretty tough marks to fish alone???

NOt familiar with Barry Headlands? What sort of marks are they?

Cheers for the replies...

As long as you get there early you will have a Spot to fish at Porthcawl. Either right on the end of the Breakwater or on the Top Wall. Use Pulley Pennels with Sand Eel Mackie or Sqiuid. Fish one as far as you can and the other about 40 or 50 yards.

I wouldunt suggest fishing Witches on your own tho fella. A tough work and you wont land a fish on your own. Same tactics as Porthcawl tho. Hope this helps. Aint to sure with the Barry area. But you could try the Knap or Jacksons Bay.
