Sorry m8 would not have mentioned it but reckoned that if it came from a fisheries guy there might be som validity in it I'm off out again the weekend and I'll only post if I personally catch anything over 5lb-I wish.

My m8 also fished Sidan on Thurday, blanked. The conditions were far from perfect though, my m8 said he could see white horses all the way out, it's much better when there is a steady line of breakers. In the conditions thursday the water would be disturbing the sand everywhere and the fish don't like that as their gills get no rest from the suspended sand. I don't think the conditions for Sidan will be right untill Wednesday.

Marcus a mate of mine has been fishing in Porthcawl last few days and fished the corner of the wall on wed night.

I not really sure to believe him or not but a guy he was fishing with lost a good bass bringing it up the wall.

he said it was at least 8lb - the guy who caught it is new to fishing and wasn't using a leader so the mainline snapped with the weight of the fish

i think until i see a good fish from Porthcawl i'm sceptic with you.

I think we been through the 'somebody caught a big fish from Porthcawl but no one saw it' thing before.

There definately was a 7 1/2 pounder caught from Cefn because it was in a match some guy confirmed it in an earlier thread

barrel it is true about that bass off the wall in porthcawl but i didnt tell u it was 8lb i just said it was bigger than that 5lb cod you had off penarth a few months ago the boy who was fishing with me is just starting out and bought a rod and reel of a friend the rod he was using was a powerstick uptider with a fladen fixed spool with 18lb main line and no leader he lost all his grip waits and put a plain 4oz wieght on with a mackrel strip and left it bounce around we didnt know he was having a bite until his rod nearly went over thats how bad the weather was
