If you can wait till nov you get some big eels off the deeps.Can't understand how you had rays off the long arm when congering mind as you need to be close in under your feet.

Ogmore deeps always produces some decent eels. Either use fish/squid baits or a livebait rig and sit it out. Best fishing after dark and a bit later in the year(september/october) is when you will get the bigger fish.

hi mate at what distance out ad what state of the tide would you fish for these down the deeps (never fished their)

i have been catching the rays with just a over heat lob out just making sure i clear the rocks what would you suggest cast just into the rocks? or just past onto sand?

There's loads of conger in fishgaurd harbour mate, easy to hook but hard to get out of the rocks. Long way but alright if you don't mind travelling.

What part of The Long Arm have you managed to catch rays with just an overhead lob? Are you fishing the seaward side? How far up do you fish?

hi mate i fish the mova side just where i park the car up in the by the yellow gate that stops you taking the car up the peir their is a flat stone their which allows you to fish quite eiasily compaired to most of the peir only problem is landing what you hook is another story ive caught most of the rays off their id say 2 hours either side of bottem but have caught all time top and bottom only problem is getting through the dogs soon as the dogs come in its game over lol
if your after ray pothcawl is probly our best bet ive had some real good uns latley from their.
