Nothing, not a single bite!!! Several people fishing Saturday morning. High was approx 10 o clock, variety of baits used, macky/squid/sandeel. Fished 2.5 hours up and 2 hrs down!

Any better fishing anywhere else?

best thing i can find with regards to wind is to lie the rod in the rest in the same direction as the gust, i.e sideways across the sea since the wind always comes in at you from barry.

yeah, first frosts should signal the return of the whiting/codling. went on a boat trip last saturday out of swansea and codling were caught so they are on their way up the coast.

Could be that my rod its a cheapy,i thought it was quite stiff but when fishing with a lad tother day his was still and mine was flapping around like a good un,his was a £150 shakespear and he said it was filled with foam?I usually result to holding the rod at 90 degrees to the line and feeling for bites,makes your arm ache though.

if ur aven problem with the wind a stiffer rod wud help but with any rod, it helps a lot if u put a bigish bow in ur line the wind then keeps the line tight n wen a fish bites the bow shortens and a bite is signaled on the tip hopes this helps
