I have just been reading the port talbot evening post, theres some lucky guy on the fishing page holding up a 28lb cod taken in swansea bay. so maybe there is a light at the end of the tunnel for the rest of us. can't wait to get out there and try myself. doggy

He's had that cod in his freezer since 1988! & he brings it out once a year to photograph it, & claim the "fish of the month" prize from Mainwarings, its all propoganda!
No cod in Swansea Bay (quiet man or we will have all them "oicks" from Cardiff, Caerphilly, Pontypool etc down here fishing for them)!

Your right blue skip fishing has been very poor so far in swansea this year, but as for that "bumper season" hasn't realy turned up yet. I've heard of the odd cod in the 20's but not in any sort of numbers. As for our cardiff mates well i havent heard of much taken there either, the penath boys are the same so can someone tell me where the idea of this bumper season came from? maybe the bed suckers have had all the cod away already, i know the big ships from holland have turned up in the bay the last few days.
So much for the EU hey lads. As for the comp yeah its the 9th, but be warned it gets very busy so not realy a good time to fish unless you know the area.
Best of luck all

Shhhhhhhhh you'll have them all down here if you talk like that, you meant 4lbs didn't you not 40! hardly worth a trip from Pontypool or Caerphilly for a 4lb codling, you can get them off the foreshore!
I dont mind being friendly but some people tear the arse right out of it dont they? We will have to push the anglers out of the way, to get a cast in if wer'e not careful! woe, woe, & thrice woe!!!!!!!!!!!
